Hey hey hey friends! TGIAF yeaaaaaaaaaaaaa 🙂
Busy busy day over here in this lady’s neck of the woods, however that seems to be the theme of this week and so far it has been flying by!
So what is everyone looking forward to this weekend before the holiday festivities begin?! Here’s my list!
- Lil’ sis is coming home from college (get out before the snow storm lady!!! pleaseeeeee)
- Potential 4-6″ of snow for our area Fri/Sat (whatttttttttttttt??)
- More cookie baking
- Prepping for XMas Eve dinner (Nanny’s homemade pierogies!!) — more on this to come later 😉
Today’s lunch included
Leftover Harvest Vegetable w/ Chicken Soup (deelish!)
A monster veggie packed salad from the Caf again 😛
Spring mix, romaine, carrot, tomato, black beans, beets, corn, mushrooms, blue cheese & hummus! Our salad bar at work is pretty darn good 🙂 Too bad I’d need a second job to pay for this habit if I had one every day haha.
And of course, no meal is complete without chocolate!
So want to hear a dirty secret? I eat chocolate or some form of dessert after every meal! Of course this is in moderation, i.e. only half the bag of these m&m’s were consumed, small scoop of ice cream, etc. This just works for me, and after so many years of depriving myself this way truly keeps me from mindlessly snacking throughout the day and also lets me give in to my cravings and therefore rarely going overboard with treats….
So of course you know what’s coming 😉 What are your thoughts on desserts after a meal? Do you always have a lil’ something or only treat yourself on certain occasions? I want to know!
Well tonight I have plans for another round of exercise, perhaps some yoga this time around. Then it is Mexican night in our house (gettin’ themed up for Mexico cruise countdown!)
I hope you stay tuned you lovelies… and enjoy your TGIAF! 😛
