After taking a hiatus on the workout front this weekend (I completed a 4.5k run on Friday before work, but that was it), this morning I was ready to get back into it!
I laid out my running clothes last night, set my alarm for 5:30am, and went to bed with an early morning run on my mind.
I gotta say, now that it is dark and chilly in the mornings, it is a lot harder to get up that early. This morning I really wanted to stay in my nice warm bed, but I forced myself out of it before my mind had a chance to really dwell on what my body was about to do, and I successfully made it out the door!
Getting out the door is the hardest part!
I was freeeeezing when I started out, but I warmed up pretty quickly. I completed 4.5k in just under 30 minutes, and as you can see from the above pic, I was pretty greasy and sweaty when I was done. Feeling proud of myself though!
My crazy kitty Dexter is always hanging around when I’m trying to do the sweaty mirror pic thang. I know he is just after my earphones…
He’s funny :).
Salad > Sundae
I was pretty thankful to be back to my routine eating today. Though I ate fairly healthily while camping, I did not mention the Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup sundae I scored from Baskin Robbins on my way home on Sunday…
Hugely unnecessary, and I have no idea why I ordered it. It was pretty ginormous, though I think my server made mine slightly chintzier than that, and I skipped the whipped cream. I felt pretty disgusting afterwards though, I’m not gonna lie.
Annnd I made the mistake of looking up the nutrition information just now…
Umm. That is ridiculous. I feel like I should have instantly gained 47 pounds after eating that. I feel like if you eat a healthy diet on a regular basis, indulgences are okay. I am all for indulging, and I’m sure you guys know this, but 80 grams of fat? 32 grams of saturated fat? 92 grams of sugar?! Yowza. That is not indulging, that is absolute gluttony. Those stats are worse than I expected.
Friends, DON’T EAT THAT. It’s not worth it.
I would actually much rather eat this instead:
A big ol’ veggie-packed salad from Druxy’s. No, this salad didn’t taste quite as good as that ridiculous sundae, but I felt a LOT better about myself after eating it. It didn’t leave me feeling like I was 500 billion pounds, and I didn’t feel like I was about to slip into a sugar-induced coma. Win-win!
We all know crazy indulgences happen though, so…
What was your last ridiculous food indulgence?
