I had one of those days yesterday where I was thinking about eating something that I knew wasn’t going to be good for me, but for whatever reason I couldn’t get it out of my head.
What was it? A chocolate milkshake! There is an icecream shop around the corner from my office. It was 3:00 p.m. Should I or shouldn’t I? I went on line because they have the nutritional information…. not joking it’s 1,000 calories! I still thought about it too. Then I thought, I wonder how many calories the kid size milkshake is? That was 500 calories…still thought about it.
I started to justify I had eaten great all day, I was going to walk home from work (which I’m pretty sure walking 1 1/2 miles will NOT burn 1,000 calories!) 🙂
I needed a plan – what could I do to take my mind of it – I had to have something in my stash at work that would save me. And this is what I found:
Oh yeah! My 25 calorie hot chocolate. I decided to add that to some coffee, add some ice, and make my own iced coffee.
Phew! I drank it, my craving for the milkshake – gone! Crisis averted 🙂 So happy I didn’t cave!!! And I had a great walk home too!
Now my fellow foodies are about to become super jealous of me. Guess what I picked up from a neighbor in my town last night?
Score!! Look at all those Bon Appetit’s and Food & Wine magazines!! I am part of a MOM mail e-mail list that hundreds of people are on in my town. You can post things if you need something, are giving something away, need to borrow, sell, need a referral, looking for babysitting, etc…
The e-mail I got yesterday included this Mom who was giving away old issues (some are 2006, 2007, 2008) of cooking magazines. I was lucky to be the first one to respond, so I went right after work to her house and picked them up! You may remember a few months ago I got tons of vegetarian times, Rachel Ray, and Cooking light magazines, so I pretty much won’t need to buy another magazine for a long time!
Can’t wait to try some new stuff!
Have a great day! 🙂
