The Measure of One's Life in Relation to the Quality of Pancakes

For the past year, I've really focused on eating healthier - cutting back on treats, eating dense salads at lunch, whole grain, etc. and also getting in exercise at least 5 times per week. Lifestyle changes always result in people talking about how great they feel, how much better they are sleeping...

...but after being sick with a cold for the past 4 days, I decided to treat myself to some French toast with berries and dark chocolate shavings. Still on the "healthier" side, with no whipped cream, syrup or butter - but an indulgence never-the-less. And now I feel unstoppable. Maybe its the cold medicine kicking in - but I think it has much more to do with the French toast.

I'm reminded of one of my favorite dialogs from one of my favorite movies: 

"I don’t wanna eat nothing but pancakes. I wanna live. Who in their right mind in a choice between pancakes and living chooses pancakes?"

"Harold, if you’d pause to think, I believe you’d realize that that answer’s inextricably contingent upon the type of life being led and of course, the quality of the pancakes."

No matter what hill you are climbing, spend some time for some quality pancakes (or French toast, if that's what's on the menu).
