Self-Control, Where’d You Go?Posted: February 28, 2011
Frozen Yogurt. Spanish Tapas. Scones. Chinese. Whole Foods (whew!). More scones + Ice Cream. Oh, God. Looking at it in print makes me feel even worse.
Don’t get me wrong. I think weekends are meant for hypothetical stretchy pants. It’s a time to indulge and enjoy yourself – and I usually embrace this idea and don’t think twice. But as I sit here replaying my meal movie reel in my head, I’m asking “Where did my self-control go?!” (Does it help my case that it’s that time?) When I go balls-to-the-wall and forget about moderation, I being to feel less than stellar. I feel lethargic. My skin starts to go south. My Chron’s acts up. I become self-conscious. It’s not good. But rather than sit here and freak out, I just need to get my butt into gear and back on track! Right?
Yesterday, Cory and I made our way out of our PJs and over to Whole Foods 😀 My favorite part of WF is the trail mix bar (that’s not the technical name, I’m sure)
I threw together some almonds, honey granola, banana chips, walnuts and a few chocolates. It even made an appearance in my oats this morning 😉
I think it’s impossible for us to visit our beloved Whole Foods without eating a meal. Thank goodness it was lunch time! I had a “make your own” veggie sandwich: spinach, tomatoes, swiss cheese, grilled veggies, and mustard. It was delicious, per the usual.
For dinner we had a pasta with grilled chicken and veggies – but I didn’t take a picture! Do you know what I did get a picture of though? My 240,590,345th indulgence of the weekend: my scone and ice cream dessert 🙂 I heated up the scone before topping with ice cream and it was absolutely heavenly!
Look at this cute little ice cream I found at Giant! (I used a little less than half and it was perfect)
I enjoyed this dessert while watching beautiful and 100% toned movie stars walk down the red carpet 😉 Who made your best-dressed list?? For me it was Halle Berry, Reese Witherspoon Mila Kunis and Mandy Moore!
They all looked so beautiful!!
This morning I woke up and made myself some regular PB&J oats with some added WF trail mix. Perfection.
Tonight I have round 2 of my alcohol program. Let’s keep our fingers crossed that
at least one person people show up this time! 😉
Chit-chat: Who do you think should make the Oscar’s Best Dressed List? How do you deal with an over-indulgent weekend come Monday morning?
