Adios, Don Pablo. Hello, Hot Enchilada!

I had lunch with my coworkers today and I stuck with Don Pablos as I blogged about earlier.  I ordered the Don's Sampler with its steak and cheese thingies, the taquito thingamobs, the fahita-ish doohickeys, the cheesey sauce, the sour cream and oh, yes, the guacamole!

A good time was had by all, and even though I thought I might grieve for the fact that I won't be visiting 'ole Senor Pablo for a while, the fact is that I feel really good about it.

I have a theory.  Each of us is born with a certain ration of various food types and it's equal among all of us.  The way I see it, I have now used up most of my lifetime rationing of fat, cheesy, sour creamy Mexican food, but I have a big 'ole heaping mountain of spinach, broccoli, Brussels sprouts and green beans awaiting me!  Most of you probably balanced out your rations a little better than I did over the course of your lifetimes, but I'm learning!  I hope I still have a pile of Ben and Jerry's tucked away somewhere.  :-)

Don Pablos 12/28/2010 BDay lunch
Well now that lunch is behind me (pardon the pun), it's time to really get serious about looking ahead at my goals and breaking it out into *ahem* bite-sized chunks.  I will map out a game plan, but remain flexible.  I learned when I quit smoking what counts most is commitment to the end goal.  Plans will shift, motivation will wain, crises will appear, but what sees us through is the commitment that NO MATTER WHAT, we will stay the course.

So now it's hasta la vista, Don Pablos and hello spicy mama.  Or something like that.  :-)

Carly <---- a little stuffed and feeling kind of like napping just now.

p.s. I did not arrive at the restaurant with that hat.  I may be a little cooky, but I have much better taste in hats. ;-)


  1. Hey there Carly, followed you here from 3fchicks and your inspiring post about 2011 being the year of YOU. Am in a similar situation as yourself- ready to make the future happen and hope to follow your journey in the mean time!xx

  2. Welcome to the blog, Clem~ Let's make 2011 awesome, shall we?

    Best of luck in your process, too (because it is really a process, isn't it?)

    We CAN!


Sorry to make you type in the "word verification" but I have been getting a ton of spammers lately. Just type in the word that you see and it should go through.
