Two things that make me crave sugar like crazy:
- Eating sugar in the morning
- Drinking diet soda
Guess who did both of these things today?
But I also worked out, so that’s good, right?
Today’s workout was very similar to my 30 second rest total-body weights workout. I kept things moving and went quickly from one exercise to the next to work up a nice sweat. This move-move-move workout also got me in and out of the gym quickly. Love that!
After breakfast and working for a few hours, I was happy to take a break for some late morning plans with Ryan.
Sparking Sugar Cravings
Just before lunchtime Ryan and I had plans to meet up at our bank to get some stuff done. Afterward, we drove to Mochi for a mid-day fro yo date. (I think someone was jealous of my solo date last night.)
Yesterday, when I blogged about how frustrated I was that most fro yo places don’t offer whipped cream, some of you told me to ask them for it because they typically do have it, but it’s not out for people to see.
Ask and you shall receive!
I’m so glad I have you guys in my life to tell me about these little secrets. You enrich my life every day.
On my way back to our hotel room, I drove by Firehouse and remembered their fantastic 100 flavor Coke machine.
Today I tried peach Sprite Zero and it was basically fabulous!
They should really make peach Sprite Zero a mainstream beverage.
After downing that bad boy, I think I’ve reached my diet soda quota for the next few weeks. I really try not to drink it often because the creepy ingredients freak me out, but I do love the sweet carbonation.
I also notice that my sweet tooth is out of control a few hours after I drink diet soda. I’ll probably be frantically searching for ice cream and cookies at my parents’ house tonight, but that’s fairly typical whenever I visit them. They always stock the fridge and pantry with the treats I try to avoid purchasing so my visits home are often filled with sugar rushes.
Lunch today was a bit delayed because my big cup of frozen yogurt quelled my hunger for a couple hours.
I still wasn’t that hungry by the time 1 p.m. rolled around, so I made myself a light lunch.
A cheese and jelly microwavable quesadilla and a banana did the trick.
Now it’s time to pack up the hotel room. I have clothes, books, food and papers everywhere! Ryan and I are heading to my parents’ house in St. Pete for the weekend right when he gets off work.
I’m hoping for a weekend full of Sadie kisses, boating and family fun!
