Thanks for all your thoughts on my comparison post yesterday. In reading the “Savor” book, I realize that there is nothing necessarily wrong with me having those feelings, and acknowledging that they are there doesn’t mean they are true. The nice thing about acknowledging that is that I don’t feel driven to eat out of feelings. I actually have to say that I have really not had any snacking disasters for a few weeks now. My snack habit energy is waning right now.
Anyway, I got up a little before 7. I was trying to decide if I wanted to run or not today. I decided I wanted breakfast, instead! I haven’t had waffles in a while 😀
So good. I wonder how the protein waffles would be with greek yogurt instead of cottage cheese? Hmmm….. possible experiment some time.
I got to work right away and worked steadily all day long. Quite the productive day, I have to say. I took a lunch break and wanted something fast.
Greek yogurt, strawberries and Kashi Berry Crunch (aka crack on steroids). I had a sample of this months ago and was so glad the entire box wasn’t in the house. When we were shopping the other day, John pointed out that cereal and I told how wonderful and good the sample was. Guess I somehow managed to not give him any of it….. Anyway, he said I sold him on it, so we got some with the caveat that it go up high as soon as we got home. I wanted some with lunch, though.
Afternoon latte was paired with a couple cookies from the Silk & Satin swag bag.
These are very nibbleable (yay for new words!). The box is in the freezer, but they don’t take long to thaw. The rest must leave to John’s poker buddies tonight.
Last file of the day was exhausting. It was a 33 minute dictation! I don’t know who was more tired at the end, me or the doctor. It took almost an hour and half to do this one with some breaks. Phew! I was glad to be done, but felt quite exhausted.
Dinner was a 3 oz burger topped with laughing cow and some caramelized onions on a small wheat bun. Country Kitchen lite – only 80 calories and no sucralose!
Those are some of the tiny plums we got at the farmer’s market, too. They are so good and fun to eat.
Take that Red Robin!
I needed to get out of the house for a while tonight and decided to bike instead of run. So, Rosie and I decided on an easy yogurt run! The path is full and green with all the rain we have had this year.
These parts of the path are one reason I hesitate to get a real road bike. They are a crushed cinder, and I don’t know if road tires would be a good thing to take on them.
Yay for yogurt!
I chose creme de menthe tonight. Minty and frosty.
I think the blue from my shirt is reflecting onto the yogurt, because it was green LOL! Very tasty. I can imagine this with hot fudge on it some time. Would need a lot longer ride for that, though!
Gonna do some porch sitting and relaxing tonight. I heard the first dog day cicadas the other day. The sign that summer is peaking and going to head for fall!
Question: Have you heard katydids or cicadas yet?
