today is like BLAZING hot...and all day all i have wanted to do is make something mexican-inspired, sink back and relax and watch a movie after work.
i headed to the grocery store to get provisions, sweating in the 90 degree heat...
which leads me to success #1: i went into the grocery store with my short-sleeves on! meaning i took my sweater off! i NEVER do this! i am so self conscious usually about my arms/back fat/everything that i ALWAYS have some sort of sweater or jacket on. even if i didnt look any better than usual, i FELT like i did...success #1.
next...failure #1. i picked up a bunch of stuff to make mexican, and i wandered over to the flour tortillas. tacos sounds so much more delicious than another salad. however...the minute i looked at those delicious flour tortillas, i knew that i still have no self control. i saw one hour in the future, with me devoring an entire bag of flour tortillas, and being like 600 calories in the hole.
so i didnt get them. womp womp. i still have no will power.
success #2: i was STARVING STARVING when i was grocery shopping, and i was dying for something to snack on during the ride home. i scoured the aisles for something healthy to nibble on, and fell short. therefore...i didnt buy anything (no chips/dark chocolate/etc.). major success.
success #3: i made the most BANGIN salad when i got home-
-lime-marinated skewered shrimp
-homemade bean and corn salsa with tomatoes, cilantro, onion, garlic and shallots
-3 cups of iceberg haha (too much??)
i am so full right now. but i made some good choices!
time to drink lotsa water, and finally kick back and relax!!!!!
