I usually try and keep my diet 80% healthy, 20% gratuitous deliciousness, but some days it ends up being 20-80 the other way around. Today was one of those days.
It all started this afternoon when I decided to have a “Cookie Off” to see which of the TJ’s chocolate covered Joe Joe’s was best.
Here we have a ginger, dark chocolate, peppermint and peanut butter Joe Joe. I knew it was going to be a hard competition, but I was up for the challenge.
I tasted each one and took into account many factors, obviously including my own personal bias on flavors…
The winner was dark chocolate followed by peppermint. But, if anyone wants a recount I’d be happy to try them all again
My 20% healthy food came in the form of a big salad for lunch. And then it was all cookies and Taco Bell from there.
Well, I guess you can kinda count this as dinner – we shared a massive popcorn and diet Coke. Sometimes I sneak in my own snacks, and other times I realize that the smell of movie popcorn is too tempting to deny myself. I love all popcorn, but movie popcorn is the best (even if it’s the worst for ya).
The movie was okay – not funny, but I really like Reese Witherspoon and Paul Rudd, so I didn’t mind watching them on the big screen. It just wasn’t funny.
I got an order of pintos and cheese for old time sakes. I used to be obsessed with this and their bean burritos. I also tried a bite of his crazy Chalupa.
Overall, I ate a lot of what I would consider “un-healthy” foods today. It’s not a big deal for me to have movie popcorn OR Taco Bell OR 4 cookies – but when I have them all in one day I have to be careful. This used to be part of an “all or nothing” / “black or white” pattern, but not any more. If this happened once a week, then I might be worried. For now I’ll just get back to 80% healthy tomorrow.
Now I am trying to pray real hard that it will stop raining in time for my long run. I am thinking about postponing it, but I have to do another long run on Friday before we go out of town and I don’t think I can do them that close together.
