The title of this post really sums up my eats for this weekend. Sure, I had a big veggie filled salad at one point but, more than anything else I ate junk 🙁 A lot of junk. Too much junk. I enjoy eating indulgent foods when I go out or at parties, but I try to keep it out of the house. I just know myself and if it’s here, I will eat it. All. Even if I’m not hungry in the least bit.
The moral of the story is junk “visited” this weekend and I ate it. I’m either tossing it or sending it to work with Ben, but it won’t be in this house tomorrow.
I have to admit that I also sought out junk when I visited Rita’s Italian Ice Sunday night. I am not apologizing for this visit as today was their last day of the season (Yes, I guess ice cream shops in the arctic tundra of Maryland are forced to close for the winter. This is tragic news to one CA girl and a reminder she’s not in Kansas any more.). I happily enjoyed a pumpkin, vanilla and oreo gelati to which I added my own smuggled granola because I am tragic love granola on ice cream. I do think this weekend’s sugar filled eats really prove the lesson that for this girl, sugar begets more sugar. I may be super sensitive to it or it may be in my head, but when I start eating sugar my body just keeps craving more and more. Noted.
Other than that I had a very happy weekend…
I ran 15.3 miles today. It was cold, but that’s how I like to run 🙂 I was supposed to do 18 miles, but my head movies got boring and I couldn’t continue. I do believe if it was all in my head on this one and my body could have done it.
I went on a bike ride with Ben. We haven’t done this since before we moved.
I made pancakes for breakfast that looked burnt, but tasted great!
It was a good one! Hope you all had a great Halloween weekend too!
Now I am off to drink massive amounts of water and try to get some of this sugar out of my system…. See you tomorrow.
