A day behind here (yesterday was a crazy day filled with last minute shopping, food prepping for the holidays, and oh snipping off about 7 inches of hair (see my most recent post for more details…)
After an indulgent night having Jess over (cookies, wine and a lot of laughs) i wanted something a little lighter for breakfast. So i had a yogurt, Nature Valley Pecan crunch bar (and yes the crumbs went EVERYWHERE) and banana with 1 TBSP of peanut butter. And of course two cups of coffee.
Best part of visiting my parents… a fully stocked fridge always! (Seriously I can make CHOP’T professional salads!) I had just finished my run/workout, and wanted some good protein to replenish after my run, so I added some turkey to last nights apple salad (left overs = amazing) and added in some extra kale for extra goodness. After this, I was actually pretty satisfied, so I popped in a piece of gum and hit the road for my hair cut extravaganza
Came back from shopping / hair cut and was STARVING (really should have packed a snack) Had some hard pretzels and carrots with Dijon mustard (honey mustard is my fav but unfortunately that seems to be the one thing my parents don’t stock in their house).
Family celebration time! Everyone is “back in the nest” as my dad would say. So we celebrated with multiple glasses of wine & a delicious dinner of shrimp scampi, rice and tomato mozzarella caprese salad.
Of course after all that wine… i made the less than positive decision to indulge in one too many cookies… so was a little mad at myself. But I know it’s all part of the journey… and I can’t beat myself up for every cookie or extra piece of chocolate eaten (especially in good company)
