Happy hump day! We’re over half way there! I have been developing a bad habit lately. Someone brought in a bunch of delicious, sweet, sugary candy to work and I have been indulging in a few pieces every afternoon. Yesterday afternoon I decided to break the cycle. Not that some candy here and there is bad, but I was making a habit out of it. It’s so easy to hit the sugar hard when you’re feeling stressed out.
But yesterday afternoon, I decided to break the cycle. I walked right past that delicious candy and did not grab one piece. And just like that, I felt empowered! Like I was on top of the world, completely in control of my life! (for that one small moment). After work I was struggling with going to the gym vs. going home and hitting the couch in my sweats (we all know which one sounds more appealing), but since I was feeling empowered and all, I decided to suck it up and hit the treadmill at the local gym for 3 miles. So that’s how skipping one piece of candy helped me hit the gym. Never underestimate the power of small everyday choices.
Last night for dinner I even made a nice salad with some Boca burgers (or cardboard, according to Kris):
Quick and healthy. This morning I started my day with an a$$ kicking at an early morning EFX class. Then came home and made some breakfast:
I had an awesome lunch date today with my dad at Ditka’s. We started by splitting a tuna roll, and each got the Ditka’s salad with a bowl of wedding soup. The food was delicious and it was so nice to take a break from the day and spend some quality time with my dad.
After work, I stopped at the store to pick up a few supplies for cheeseburger casserole, and I made 2 great finds. I bought this Quinn popcorn that is Cheddar & Chipotle flavor. The flavor is subtle at first, but then it really packs a punch. And I also bought a case of this carbonated water; it is the perfect snack that feels like a cheat snack, but in reality it’s not! What a simple and delicious brain trick.
Now to do some meal prep for chicken kale salad bowls for lunches the rest of the week. Have a great evening!
