Without Coffee! Please NO Sales Pitch

Without my coffee, I go a little crazy. Like I said in my last post, I don’t drink a lot of coffee in the morning, barely a whole cup, but it’s the whole routine of it. Today my routine was messed up, and because of this I made some very bad decisions. I decided to eat doughnut holes. A lot of them. I didn’t even drink my green juice. I didn’t even have time to stop to buy a new coffee maker. This means tomorrow will be messed up too.

I usually make healthy eating choices, but lately, with or without coffee, I’ve been eating like a fool. Most people tell me I’m fine. I’ve got nothing to worry about. They say I’m lucky I can stay thin and eat what I want. When they say this they get the “You have got to be f’ing kidding me,” look. I work so hard to maintain my weight. If I don’t, I can gain 10 pounds in 2 weeks. Do you know how long it takes a 40something to lose 10 pounds? Not 2 weeks. Unless of course I eat ice cream like I did yesterday. Ice cream, soy, grains of any kind, shell fish. I will never gain weight eating those things because my gut rejects all of it as soon as it hits my mouth. It’s like it just knows what I’m about to put in it. Ha!

I lost 25 pounds last year, and I’ve worked like a dog to keep it off. I lost it by buying into someone’s sales pitch. Meaning, I lost it because I started eating healthy, and drinking a LOT of water per day… literally a gallon of it. Anyway, I did all of that and drank some “special” morning drink. Now that I’m older, wiser, and in a midlife crisis (all in one year), I see that it wasn’t the special drink, but the change in eating habits and the water.

Stick with me here, I am leading up to something.

This past year I bought into someone else’s sales pitch. Mainly for the wife this time. She has Lupus, and I thought it sounded lovely for her. Well, she never took it, and I had a hard time with some of the ingredients (because I had gotten used to eating real, low ingredient foods), so these “products” were shelved.

Then I figured since I’ve lost weight, I needed some beauty products. Really, I didn’t decide this. Someone else tried to pitch this to me.

Here is my problem with all of this. I’m fine buying the product. Yada, yada, yada… I’ll buy it! Oh, did I mention the cleaning product pitch?

Again, I’ll buy your product if it will help you, or Hell, if it will help me say goodbye to this side of our friendship, but please don’t try to get me to sell your products. I don’t want to sell anything. I don’t want to set up websites, ship anything, or keep up with anything extra. I have a business. I have lots of animals. I have a wife. I have a high school senior. I am tired. If you keep trying to get me to jump on the sales train, I will run far from you. I am not a people person. Generally speaking, I don’t like people.I don’t want to host parties. I am the last person you want pushing products, because you’re not even pushing products. You’re pushing people to sell your products, who then go push others to sell. What exactly are you selling again?

What I need in my life right now is a coffee maker. No seriously, I mean now. In like the next 7 hours. 7.hours.
