Lynn - In Frozen Desserts We Trust

Happy Hump Day everyone!  

Though since I don't have a real job, I feel a little silly saying that....

Today's breakfast and lunch were a lot like yesterday's, so I didn't bother taking pix.  I went to the gym in the morning and for some reason had a lot more trouble running this time so I did a walk/run combo.

Before I went to go do some errands, I locked myself out of the house.  Woops.  

Luckily my landlady lives down the street and had a spare key.  I went to Whole Foods, where I spent more money on a single bag of groceries than I do on four at Trader Joe's.  But I did get some goods I can't get at TJ's - 

Quorn Chik'n Patties.  We had these for dinner - baked for 20 minutes in the toaster oven.  

With Ezekiel bread, mustard, spinach, and frozen brussels sprouts (nuked and tossed with honey mustard dressing, salt, and pepper)


Abe and I were so excited to watch this tonight - 

It was the Throwdown with Bobby Flay against the restaurant owner of Mama Testa Taqueria, where Abe and I ate last month in San Diego.

I won't tell you who won...but you can watch for yourself this week - I believe the show is rerunning....

A red plum.  I like my plums firm.  Dunno why.

Then: fish oil, calcium, and ginger chew.

I was satisfied, but my mind kept thinking of my other Whole Foods purchases:

365-Brand Passion Fruit Sorbet and Stonyfield Farm's Organic After Dark Chocolate Frozen Yogurt.

Ordinarily, I would say to myself, "You're not hungry, so...no."  But in light of The Special K Treatment's Trust Yourself project, I decided to reevaluate.  Why was I depriving myself of something I wanted?  Afraid of gaining weight?  Leading to a binge?  No, I trust myself enough to know I can "handle" the "consequences" of "giving in" to my desires.  

(Sorry for the obnoxious amount of air quotes.)

So I had a scoop of each, topped with some Zoe's Granola.

Really really really really really really good stuff. 

Another peanut ginger chew later and I'm feeling groovy.
