Treat Night

Chris came home from traveling all week today, so we treated ourselves to an easy night - he picked up Chipotle for us and brought it home, so I can have dinner right after work.

I got a salad with chicken on it, fajita veggies, salsa and sour cream. I constructed it off their online menu, see you can actually see the different calories of things as you build your meal. That was really helpful, to help me avoid picking every single high calorie item on the menu! The sour cream was my splurge :) I skipped the vinaigrette, opting to use the sour cream as the dressing.

The coffee shop down the street from us just started selling ice cream too. As a promotion, they were giving away free scoops of ice cream today. Free ice cream, no-brainer for me! Especially since my eating has been spot-on this week again (been back on track and feeling good!). 

Obviously, since it was free, it was a nice reasonable portion. I got peanut butter fudge, and I am more than satisfied :)

It's been really nice to be back to normal, to have five or so days of eating moderately and healthfully with A focus on nutrition, and then indulging in a little treat. I wrote that blog post some days ago about treats being treats, not the norm. And it was a good reminder. It's been nice to get back to that, because that ice cream tasted better than if I had been having ice cream every day! And no guilt at all for eating it, which is also nice. There shouldn't be guilt surrounding food like that.

I have my brother's fiancée's bridal shower on Sunday, and it is in New Jersey, so I have a bit of a long day that day. But it will be nice to see my family and her family again!

Enjoy the weekend.

Namaste <3

  1. All week in the back of mind has been treating a treat like a treat and not shoving in my face because it is there. All week I am surrounded by good treats, I work with the elderly and families love to share with staff. I stayed focused and didn't have any, last night our family had ice cream and pizza for dinner and dessert. I was OK with it and enjoyed all with no guilt.
