…about tomorrow’s beer run. Q left a very reassuring yet hilarious comment on my last post that should make us all feel better about the situation.
Colleen (a reader) reminded me of Zevia, the lovely sugar and calorie-free soda (which comes in root beer flavour!). It is sweetened with stevia and might be a possibility for tomorrow. I still think running on six cans of carbonation is going to suck big time though so I will have to make some game time decisions.
I also got an anonymous comment on my latest #ipromise post about how I should just eat the foods I enjoy and not deprive myself ofthings that I crave. Thank you to whoever it was that wrote that because I’d love to address it. I don’t want my readers to think I don’t eat what I want because I definitely do. Example:
Last night I went out with a friend and we wanted froyo so we went and got some. Knowing that I promised myself one indulgent day for the week and I still have Quinton’s party/beer run tomorrow had no effect on my decision. So what if I break my promise and eat some pie tomorrow? If I want froyo on a Thursday night I will eat it. And if I want pie on a Saturday I will eat that too.
These promises are more like challenges for me because I love love LOVE sweets and it is not healthy for me to eat exactly what I want each day because I’m pretty sure chocolate doesn’t have that many nutrients in it. Ice cream probably wouldn’t work well as pre-workout fuel either.
It took me a long time to learn balance and I am still learning but I said sayonara to deprivation a long time ago. Eat ice cream, be happy.
Then get some kisses from your puppy and life is good.
Do you schedule treat days or do you eat what you want when you want?
What the heck are vodka coolers and can someone recommend one that doesn’t taste like gasoline?
