Good evening, all! I spent the last hour or so working on a post about healthy body image and eliminating negative self-talk, but it just wasn’t “clicking” the way I hoped it would, if you know what I mean. I’m trying to stop being so hard on myself all the time, but, unfortunately, it is a really hard habit to break. I wish I felt more comfortable saying nice things about myself, but I’m not there yet, and as a result the post just wasn’t working. Hopefully I’ll get there soon. :-/
On a lighter note, here’s breakfast:
Venti skinny vanilla latte and oatmeal with brown sugar mixed in from my friendly neighborhood Starbucks. Delicious! I’ve never been much of a morning person, and now that my commute is only five blocks each way, I get up at the last possible second and run out the door without even thinking about breakfast! :) After an hour or so of work I make my way down the block to the ‘bucks (that way, I miss most of the morning rush!) and get something to eat. While it is a bit pricey, I think it’s a pretty solid “fast food” breakfast choice that keeps me full all morning.
After some more work and a training session, my co-worker and I decided on an adorable tea & scones shop for lunch. I might be a little obsessed with this place! I got:
One pumpkin scone and one honey wheat scone, served with clotted cream and preserves, and a pot of green tea. SO delicious! I was “good” and only ate half of each:
Can’t wait to have the leftovers tomorrow!
After work I wasn’t really feeling the gym, so instead I took the pup to our local dog park to blow off some energy. I had a Fruit-2-day as a snack sort of a chewy smoothie-type thing with 2 servings of fruit while Barkley did his business. Unfortunately, he was getting a little bit too much *attention* from the other doggies, if you know what I mean (despite the fact that he’s a neutered boy dog!), so we left after about 15 minutes. The roundtrip walk (about a mile) really tuckered him out, and he’s passed out by my feet as I type this. :)
Time for dishes, baseball, dinner and baking! Back later!
