It's the Little Things
Monday, June 06, 2011
So I went back to the yoga studio today for a de-stress class (which was great, by the way), and was having a food moment on my way. Th thing is, I brought a peach for a snack, and when I started eating the peach the pit split open and oh, lookit that... MOLD. Blech! So I only got about half a peach which had me hungry an hour before class. The studio is directly across the street from this cafe that has AMAZING frozen yogurt AND Cracklin' Oat Bran as a mix-in. I haven't had any in years because I thought the place closed but it just moved and anyway, ever since I discovered it was still around those little oat-y delicious squares have been dancing in my head. BUT, I made a goal to only have something sweet out once this week and I'm going home this weekend so I sorta want to save it. I headed up the street in search of something else. What did I spy but a grocery store! Feeling happy, I walked through the doors... directly into the bakery! What the sh*t is up with that?! (PS: SparkPeople doesn't allow swearing? Aren't we all grownups here?) I lingered over the snack cakes and bagels and rolls, and successfully tore myself away into produce! I ended up with just a (tasty, tasty) banana.
It doesn't end there though. On the way home from class, I pass TWO amazing froyo places. The one I talked about earlier and my most favorite one in the world. Since I had frozen yogurt on the brain, it was SO HARD to pass by both of those shops. As I walked out of the door of the studio though, I felt the craving come on so strong and I thought, "I am going to feel so much better about myself if I DON'T stop." And somehow, that was enough. I came home and had my salad and my pita and my frozen fruit bar and you know what? I feel much happier with myself.
