Yesterday was a great day! I decided to sleep in (9 glorious hours of sleep!) and go on a hunt to find the perfect muffin. After checking out 4 places, I finally settled on a delicious Raisin Bran muffin. It was pretty much the size of a grapefruit. Read: YUMMM.
I made the rest of the day healthy until after my boyfriend Joe and I attended a painting class together.
We went to a place called “Merlot and a Masterpiece” and had a great time drinking some wine, painting, and laughing. The theme of the night was “The Dancer”, and we were supposed to copy the artist’s painting. When I paint, I have to do my own thing… so I didn’t really follow the rules but, I kept it abstract (which I never do) so that’s gotta count for something…right?
Anyways, after that I felt like a bear coming out of hibernation. I needed food and I needed it NOW. Of course, the fact that I had already eaten breakfast, lunch, and dinner didn’t matter. It was time for dinner number two… and I was going to indulge.
We went to a Mexican restaurant and ate a million too many chips (with salsa) and delicious burritos covered in queso. See, I really wasn’t kidding when I said I was going to indulge! Did I mention
we I grabbed a baby ice cream cone from McDonald’s after, too? Sorry I’m not sorry.
Of course, the reality of that delicious treat really hits you the next day. Today’s goal has been healthy foods, healthy foods, oh! and more healthy foods.
I began with a banana smoothie, snacked on some cereal, and then had this health-packed lunch:
Steamed broccoli, cherry tomatoes, and baby carrots made up my “sides”.
The main part of the meal was my sandwich thin + roasted red pepper hummus + marinated kalamata olives. Let’s take a closer look, shall we?
Basically, today’s lunch rocked. It’s great to be home and have any kind of veggie at your fingertips. It’s lunches like that make me feel better about last night’s treats.
As Kid Rock said on a recent episode of Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives, “Everything in moderation, including moderation.”
Hope you enjoy your day (and have a few sweet treats in there too)!
Question for you:
What’s your favorite thing to eat on a “splurge” night? (I think mine is Mexican food!)
