Hey everyone! How was your day? Mine was quite wonderful even though it was lacking in Indian food. A girl’s gotta do what a girl’s gotta do…and in this case it was to bring in some dollas
This afternoon, I made some pumpkin pie in a bowl soup (Natalia Rose’s recipe) to take with me to munch after spin and Zumba.
Afternoon snack was a beautiful mango:
And before spin, I had some sprouted bread with a little almond butter and WFs strawberry jam:
And packed up my loot to go teach:
Spin and Zumba were a blasty, but I ended up not having time to eat my pumpkin pie soup before I had to train a client. Said soup sat in my car for about 4 hours total and tasted a little funky when I actually had time to munch it.
My training appointment was a lot of fun (I had funny quotes lady) and the title comes from when we were doing jackknives on the stability ball. To rest in between sets, she curled into a little ball on top of the stability ball and said she felt like she was laying an egg. She cracks me up 😀
For dinner, instead of the rancid soup, I ate what I was hankering for:
Mary’s crack and leftover Amy’s frijoles with green chiles, straight outta the plastic container because that’s how I roll
And an herb Sunshine burger:
Estoy muy contenta 😀
I was thinking about it, and had I eaten the soup, I would have consumed an entire avocado today (between the soup and this afternoon’s blended salad). I have NEVER done that. Not because I don’t like the taste of them, but because when I first started my weight loss journey, I taught myself to fear fats. All fats, healthy or the unhealthy variety.. I stayed away. I didn’t start eating peanut butter until right before I started the blog (a year and a half ago), even though I knew it was actually good for me and was nothing to be afraid of. It’s just that once you lose a significant amount of weight and feel the best you ever have, the thought of putting it back on is a scary thing. I’ve come a long way since then, especially since I go through a jar of almond butter each week, but I was happily surprised that I would have eaten a whole avocado today and without thinking twice about it. I realized this after I discovered the soup was nast, but had it been fresh, I totally would have devoured it. Just goes to show that I’m by no means perfect with my eating –I feel like I learn something new everyday- but by taking baby steps, it is possible to overcome “fear foods” and totally change eating habits for the better.
Well I’m getting sucked into So You Think You Can Dance and then it’s jammie time up in herrrrre. See ya tomorrow, bloggies.
