So, basically a chicken patty from NutriSystem just sitting in clearance. Is it just me or does this sound disgusting?! Made me wonder--- is this real chicken or some chemical-based concoction. According to the ingredient list, it is chicken:
Moving on; Monday morning I drove back to my apartment to complete a training run (there are no running areas/tracks around my parent’s neighborhood). I think I ran about 3 miles (or 2.5) but not entirely sure as I realized my Nike+ app had disappeared from my phone. I actually finally updated my IPhone to the latest operating system this past weekend (another labor day weekend “task” completed). So basically, random apps disappeared while some stayed. Not sure how apple picks and chooses what stays. In addition to no Nike App my Pandora (and general music apps) were not working. Either way, I managed to run with zero entertainment. Just listening to my heart beat and of course my rambling mind which I was trying to ignore/silence during the entire run.
After my run, I had some breakfast and then tackled my DVR for some Suze Orman shows I had missed during he past few weeks (yes I am a huge fan of her show!):

I then took a trip to the hair salon to get my hair ‘did as I am in the process of renewing my passport and I am looking forward to taking some decent-looking passport photos. Scratch that: I wanna’ look good. Lets just say that my current pic was taken when I was about 13 or 14 years old and its pretty horrible. There’s no sugar coating it. So, my goal for this week is to take some nice pics and get my passport renewed. Cant wait for future travels! I think another Euro-trip is in order.
When I got home that evening I had the urge for some banana muffins and that’s what went down in my kitchen.
I got inspired by a post on a blog I recently found and which I added to my blog-roll list: The Real Life RD. This blog really hit home on a personal level but I’ll explain more why on a future post. In the meantime, click here for the blog/recipe.
Confession: Although I wasn’t planning on it I ate about half a dozen (or maybe more) of those mini-muffins. I know that besides the fact they came out damn good, my triggers were also boredom, loneliness, something in my personal life that was bothering me and dreading going back to work the next day. Not to mention the fact that I was flipping channels of mindless Monday-night television. As I previously mentioned, I am not allowing guilt to affect me and I am just moving on and accepting those muffins came out good and I did enjoy my indulgence. However, I figured I shared this with you guys and not pretend like I simply ate one muffin and put away the rest because that’s not what happened. Guilt-free eating is a work in progress. So, I figured I share every step of the way with you guys!
Ok well, that’s all folks! All in all I enjoyed my weekend. Looking forward to tackling some more stuff this week. Thank god is a short work- week!
