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

Saturday, February 19, 2011

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!


Huge but.

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.

    Isn't writing blogs like therapy? First you are all over yourself and disappointed then.... POP in the head... you realize that you've done a heck of a job after all! emoticon

    Sorry you lost your phone. That stinks. I am guessing that you didn't have insurance. You can probably replace your phone (look into ebay) to finish out your contract. Even if you can't get an iphone you can get something. That way you won't be wasting your moneys! emoticon

    Good luck and know I'll be thinking about ya! emoticon
