Don't Be Dopey

I can't believe this, but THIS post.... this one right here....  THIS'UN HITHER.... is my 100th post.

Do you know what that means?

That means that there were 100 times that I felt the need to talk to strangers.  Yup.

Because if I know you, you've probably heard a lot of what I've babbled or ranted on and on about.  You probably got it straight from the horse's mouth at one time or another.

I'll have you know that I didn't realize this little 100th Post factoid until after I did my little video, so there will be no celebratory hooplah going on.   In fact, I was so jazzed up about my topic today that I almost didn't write anything here at all.  I was going to just post the video.

As I've mentioned in previous posts, I'm really digging this book I've been reading,  The Willpower Instinct by Kelly McGonigal, PhD.  I've never been a "sciency" person, so I was surprised that this book grabbed my attention and held it for so long.  Even mores, I can't believe how excited I am to share and relate to the information.

I've been struggling with my biology for a long time.  In my brain, I can be a size 2 with no problem! But then something sneaky creeps up and pushes me off my path, and I'm left standing there going, WHYYYYY????!!!

I now see that I have to evaluate my ENTIRE self to understand why I keep sabotaging myself.  It's not all physical and it's not all mental.  It's everything.  And I'm a bit uninformed.  But I'm learning!  I'll probably get it all figured out when I'm 93.... or 10 minutes before I get taken out by foliage (because, as I've mentioned, foliage is going to be what causes my demise!)

Today's video is about dopamine.  And manipulation.  And hot pretzels.  And struggle.  And monsters.  And Christmas music.  Oh yeah..... it's got ALL of those things in it.  Prepare yourself!
