So if you haven’t figured out what leftovers is by now, you’re a little late to the party. It’s cool. You brought beer right? Kidding. I hate beer. It tastes like feet water. Don’t say no. I’m right. Maybe it’s because I’m so young, I still don’t like the taste of alcohol. Maybe. Or maybe because I’d rather waste my calories away on dark chocolate binges and late night serenades with sea side cheddar. Mmmm I love seaside cheddar.

Holy crap, I didn’t even tell you what leftovers means. No, it’s not the leftovers I had in my fridge. It’s a meal I have made in the past, loved, and wanted to make again since my pictures sucked ass back then. This post shows the disgusting picture that was taken back in the day when I was working 4 jobs and only used my camera phone at 5am. So, anyone who still had the balls to try out the recipe, EVEN AFTER looking at the picture, I love you. And applaud your bravery.

I fasted yesterday. A really long time. Like 26 hours long time. I’m going to teach you something so you never make the same mistake I do. So listen closely.

Do not, I repeat DO NOT, fast for 26 hours, while on your monthly gift, and attempt a Regionals wod…all on a Monday. Just don’t do it. Yes, I understand I just lost 10 male readers purely on the fact I said “monthly gift”, but I do not care. It’s all a terrible idea and I wish it on no one. I cried staring at the pull up bar. I cried sitting on the floor after the workout. I cried on my drive home to fix my makeup. AND I cried while doing my makeup. Are you serious Juli? Get your sh*t together. You’ve had your monthly gift, MONTHLY, for 10+ years now. If you don’t know how to control your emotions at this point, there’s no hope.

On the up side…oh wait…there is no up side. I’m kidding people, I’m not that negative. Up side: it was super hot today and my pants got so sweaty, it looked like I peed myself. Always searching for the awkward happiness in the small thing. Positive Polly right here.
