No matter the plan... we all Blog to Lose!
Today was my busy day at work. It seems like in the past few years I have an insanely tough and long day followed by an easy cheezy day. I guess it evens out because now I'm really looking forward to Monday. HA! Not really.
Food was kind of messed up because I tried to bring some different things and then didn't want to eat them. Honestly, it was like I was drugged when I packed my food for today. I ate it all except for the lentils (canned - i'm ashamed). They just looked so gross. I stayed at work late and decided on the way out I was going to Starbux for something full of lots of chocolate. Tired and hungry just don't mix. We all know it. But this was one of those times that I really craved some rich chocolate and I knew if I didn't have it it would come back to haunt me worse. You know those times, right? I chose one of their massive choco chip muffins. I tried to just eat the top off of it but it was too yummy and moist. I think those Starbux muffins weigh like a pound a piece so I will not bother with a search on the calorie count. If I had to guess it would be about 400-500. I'm a little embarrassed to say that it was worth every single bite. But it was.
When I got home I scarfed down two bowls of a yummy and creative salad that my husband made. I went late to the gym and worked out for 100 minutes. I remembered that I used to do this in the past when I was trying to lose weight but much more often than I do now. I think I did partly because I felt a little guilty about the muffin plus I know I won't be able to go tomorrow since I'll be up at school all day trying to catch up on work.
I hope everyone has a happy non-mega-choco-chip-muffin weekend!!
