I fear my sweet tooth slash sugar addiction is making a return.
Exhibit A: the dessert I had last night that wasn’t enough…so I went back for MORE. WTF.
I’m not interested in going back to that, so I’m going to preemptively make some changes. I’m going to think about what I want to do and get back to you guys. The seasonal treats are fun and all, but lately I don’t even feel good after eating so much sugar on the late night. I barely crave it and then (even AS I’M EATING IT) I think this isn’t doing it for me, why am I having this? Back when I did my 30 day GI reset I felt so awesome. I’m going to try to get back to that place…the freedom from the feeling of NEEDING sweets. It’s too cold for kombucha but a bigger dinner should help. We will see. Like I said, I will mull things over first.
I had the rest of the Pushkin’s leftovers for breakfast.
I was so proud of myself for getting a workout in this morning because the kids were up before 6 am and it was raining and yet, I still managed to crush a dvd workout followed by a (very short) jog around the neighborhood. P and V were fed but we still had a long time to kill before school and I was feeling antsy as hell for some reason. Then I noticed a little let up in the rain and before I could stop myself told the kids to get in the double for a quick run. And what do you know – they went for it! We weren’t out for more than ten minutes before it started coming down too much for my liking but I still got my heart rate up and felt pretty thrilled by the whole thing.
I had the same lunch as the day before with fewer salmon (which is all gone now) and more cashews. A decent trade off, in my opinion. 😉
The rain held off until after we got home from soccer and after I put out the trash cans which seems like a small thing but is HUGE for me. Despite what my earlier workout story would suggest, I have no interest in messing around in the rain. I mean it, I am a total wuss with weather. I would be here huddled up in a blanket until May if everyone else would be cool with that plan. Had it been raining I probably would have just skipped garbage day! Don’t tell Kyle. Hopefully the rain stops at some point so I can take them back off the curb like a responsible home owner.
We had leftovers for dinner, which was eaten in courses. They had apples and bell peppers after this, at their request. I had the last bits of curry short ribs and cornbread. And then the endangered species and divine chocolate bars you see above. Plus TJs pumpkin caramels and barnana chocolate bites. OOF.
