Funny story, I found myself in a group of ladies who are keeping each other accountable for healthy eating. Thanks, Lisa. So here’s my slightly delayed #Chewsday reflection.
I feel like if I help keep other people accountable, that means I can go home and have fries and feel less guilty because I helped other people be better people so that burns calories, right? I’m selfless like Mother Theresa, especially when I eat the fries no one else wants to finish because, you know, “calories” or whatever and I’m saying, “there are starving people in this world who would kill to have a french fry, shame on all of you!” As I hog the fries because the cafeteria at work recently reintroduced WAFFLE FRIES. Waffles, fries, I mean it’s the marriage of two wonderful things.
This weekend was insanely healthy:
I dumped a fun size bag of M&Ms into a single pouch of peanut butter. Portion control!
I drank lots of water, which was unrecognizable because I added so much crystal light to it, but still. Hydration!
I had onion rings and a falafel burger for dinner but I stopped halfway through the onion rings and then waited a good 10 minutes to finish them off. Willpower!
I walked around the Dupont Circle farmers’ market eating all their samples which all happened to be fruits and veggies so healthy snacking was accomplished. Good choices! Free lunch!
I always feel like I don’t eat that much crap and then yesterday I made 2 trips to the Italian ice truck that was parked outside our building for strawberry lemon ice and a pina colada ice. In my defense, someone else saw my ice and wanted one and I wasn’t going to walk all the way out there and just not get anything. Let’s just say the frequent buyer cards are basically my new most favorite thing ever.
