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.

    I actually don’t mind room temperature kombucha (it’s fizzier!) Or a warm apple cider vinegar tonic could work?
    I have an insane collection of teas. There’s more creative ones in the US though that I’m sure you can find. For me the chocolate before bed is more of a ritual / you deserve this so I want to replace it with something to be satisfied.

    I am proud of you for getting a workout in too! I need to treat myself better and prioritize it…I used to workout every single day before my daughter was born and it IS so important to me that I thought it would be a priority for me after she was born too, but sadly it has not. She became my number one priority, naturally, and I basically became my last. Ugh. I haven’t had a real workout other than stroller walks since she has been born 🙁 just writing that out makes me cringe! You do such an amazing job getting your workouts in…I need to follow your example. I know I can’t do it before my daughter wakes up since she wakes up between 4:30-5:00, but maybe she will find it amusing to watch me workout. Or more likely she will cry and fuss at me to play with her and pick her up. But there is only one way to find out!!

    You can do it!! There’s only one person who can change your self care routine and it’s you. I’m saying this to pump you up and hopefully to take some of my own advice. It’s reallllllly important to feel fulfilled and happy in life and there’s only so long you can go on giving and giving of yourself.

    That salad thing you got from the nugget looks amazing! And although i can certainly make my own there is something even better when i buy something like that (aka why i can’t be trusted at whole foods salad bar!). I think it would be really hard to quit having an evening dessert all together without feeling deprived, but maybe swapping in a big mug of almond milk dark chocolate hot chocolate and some extra spicy candied ginger would hit the spot. Or The Ginger People company makes some great extra spicy chewy ginger candies that would be hard to eat more than two or three pcs.
    I am SO with you on the anti-rain , i fantasize about staying gome watching movies and making soup every time i wake up to rain!
