Well, if I was lacking on sleep I sure caught up last night. In bed at 10 p.m., out of bed at 9 a.m. Wowzah! Last night we watched The Ugly Truth which I had seen before. Like all romantic comedies, it’s pretty predictable but at the same time laugh out loud funny. We realized how suggestible movies are when there were two coffee scenes back to back and we both became urgently in need of some decaf. Luckily I had ordered a whole box of decaf by accident so we were able to fulfill our desires without leaving the house. (Sounds kinda pervy.)
Dinner was roasted potatoes (I only got them last week and they were growing roots?!), Dr. P’s California burger, smashed avocado with salsa, and kale chips. Those damn things set the fire alarm off every time I make them. I am totally over the Kale chips now. I think i overcooked them last night and they crunched, crunched, crunched all up in my face. I breathed through my nose while taking a bite and flakes went all over the place. Funny at the time but still…. As you can see from Lens plate–he wasn’t feeling them either.
The salsa/avocado mixture was incredible though. It was pineapple salsa which added the perfect touch.
As you can see, I’m getting a little out of control with the Clif bars. For dessert last night I ate the peanut butter and jelly Dipped Mojo Bar. Honestly, I was basically eating a candy bar. This thing is amazing. The Dipped Mojo bars are the regular Mojo bars but dipped with either chocolate, vanilla, or peanut butter. I’ve been having serious cravings for jelly lately which may be why I was head over heals for this bar. As for the nutritional contents– 220 calories, 11 grams of fat, 2 grams of fiber, and 9 grams of protein. No wonder why it tastes like a candy bar, it basically is! I would feel less guilty eating this if it had more fiber. The good news is that Mojo Bars contains no trans fat, hydrogenated oils or high fructose corn syrup. Like the other Clif bars, this one is 70% organic. I can’t wait to have more today. Addicted.
Don’t forget to enter my giveaway!!! You guys need to try these for yourself.
I did lose a tiny little bit of weight this week which goes to show that the scale is a bunch of crap. I really should gave gained this week. I worked out once and at like crap every day, except yesterday. I must be losing any muscle that I have left in my body. My 3 category binge things sort of fell by the wayside this week. I think I followed the plan Monday. Wednesday I kinda did whatever and didn’t have a healthy dinner. Thursday I mentally fought the bins all day, which is exactly what Mimi doesn’t want me to do. I’ll have to tell her about my conflict and see what she says. This was only the second week of the experiment so I need to be patient. It’s hard because I want to lose weight, but at the same time I know it’s most important to change my behaviors first. Clearly diets and I don’t jive. I can’t stick to any plan that creates restriction. It also seems that I can’t stick to a plan with so much freedom either. For all of you out there who just eat when you’re hungry and stop when you’re full, tell me your secrets.
I woke up craving oatmeal. Even though I see bowls of oatmeal at least 15 times per day on different blogs, I’ve never have cravings for it. As a matter of fact, I hadn’t had any in months because I thought I was out. To my surprise, there’s been a huge ass tub of oats starting me right in the face this whole time. Nice! This mornings oats contained 1/2 cup oats, 1/2 cup almond milk, 1/2 cup water, one small apple, 1 tbsp peanut butter, and lots of cinnamon. It was perfect, minus the strange color.
Lens sister is in town for the afternoon so I better get to the gym before she gets here. We’re going Mexican for lunch so I see some chips and salsa in my future.
Have a great day bloggies!!
