Peanutella you say? With a side of tangents? YES!

Grrrrr, I made chocolate peanut butter tonight for my Sunday Nascar party (Tangent #1- Hehehe I don't even like Nascar!!) and tasted the mix sooo many times. I entered in my tracker that I had 3 TBSP of peanut butter which I hope covers it, but I am grumpy for not having better self control. To the party I am taking puff pastry filled with delicious peanutella, recipe from smittenkitchen dot com, so that I CAN'T EAT THEM! They have gluten. But that didn't stop me from tasting the creamy peanuts that I roasted and then ground into a liquid before adding powdered sugar and cocoa. Heaven in a jar, served on a spoon.
Dang it tasted good!
I shouldn't have had three servings worth. I should have limited the amount. I know, I stayed in my calorie goals for the day, but I am trying to build better habits into my life.
Oh, as I type this, I realize that the rest of my day was a success. I got in an hour of sweaty cardio at a solid aerobic heart rate, ate super clean for all of my other meals, and overall was healthy. So, for the day I made great decisions for 90% of the day. So maybe I AM making new habits. I can't expect all of my old habits to just magically disappear. (Tangent #2- Like my iPhone did at the gym today. I set it down in the locker room and then threw away my empty water bottle. Poof. Gone. Right now I'm without a phone at all because my contract with ATT is not up yet so I'd have to pay $500 bucks for a phone. Not in my budget right now.)
So, back to my habits. (Tangent #3- I often take tangents in my thinking. Life is one big web of interconnected ideas, isn't it? If you disagree, I think you must be weird.)
I DID practice my new habits. I will do them again tomorrow and shoot for 93% accuracy.
