Ever since moving to NYC, I’ve consistently found myself stumbling into a pizza parlor around midnight, in the midst of bar hopping.
𝙵𝚛𝚒𝚎𝚗𝚍𝚜: “𝚆𝚑𝚎𝚛𝚎 𝚜𝚑𝚘𝚞𝚕𝚍 𝚠𝚎 𝚐𝚘 𝚗𝚎𝚡𝚝?”
𝙼𝚎: “𝙳𝚎𝚏𝚒𝚗𝚒𝚝𝚎𝚕𝚢 𝚊𝚛𝚘𝚞𝚗𝚍 𝚝𝚑𝚎 𝚌𝚘𝚛𝚗𝚎𝚛 𝚜𝚘 𝙸 𝚌𝚊𝚗 𝚏𝚘𝚕𝚍 𝚊 𝚜𝚕𝚒𝚌𝚎 𝚘𝚏 𝚙𝚎𝚙𝚙𝚎𝚛𝚘𝚗𝚒 𝚙𝚒𝚣𝚣𝚊 𝚒𝚗𝚝𝚘 𝚖𝚢 𝚖𝚘𝚞𝚝𝚑.”
Having the option to eat anything I want, at any time I want, is one of the many reasons I love New York City.
And indulging on pizza at 2...4...sometimes 5am also means indulging on that thing I love about this magical city.
20 years later, I can tell the story about living in New York and ending my drunken nights with a slice of pepperoni pizza.
Eating pizza is enhancing my experience in a myriad of ways—supplying happiness, creating stories, satisfying my taste buds, filling my belly.
Sometimes your choices aren’t going to be aligned with your fitness goals, but they are going to be aligned with your happiness.
And happiness *is* an investment in your health, too.
If you eat pizza at midnight, you didn’t fail. You *just* ate pizza.
Consistency is what drives results—not perfection. If you’re consistently working out and consistently choosing nutrient dense foods 80% of the time—you’re crushing it.
Don’t take fitness too seriously, my darlings. Let it enhance your life, not take you away from it.
....but on a more serious note, who else likes eating pizza at 2am?
To happiness and pizza,
