I have been a bad girl

Sunday, July 15, 2012

First day back at work after a week of vacation. Had to be in early to open the department and write the order. I unstacked and restacked four pallets of freight. I hurt all over. So, after I get off, I buy ice cream, caramel syrup, and raspberries. One cup of ice cream, two tablespoons of syrup, and six ounces of raspberries makes for some mighty fine comfort food. At least I did not quite blow out my calorie limit for the day.

    Hey, congrats on getting a facial today! I hope you feel's a relaxing experience (or should be, anyway). Wouldn't worry about the ice cream as it seems to me you exercised good self-control and measured everything out. Aren't raspberries part of your fruit allotment anyway? I don't know what specific diet you're using, but isn't fruit part of everyone's day? And the ice cream is just milk (and a few other things). Did you get ice cream or the light version or what? And 2 T. of syrup should not blow the diet. Geesh! We're so hard on ourselves, aren't we?

    I'm all about the services thing, though. I tell my kids not to buy me gifts for occasions anymore, but pampering services and they ALL know where I go for what. They can all go in together for a massage and not spend much but it sure means a lot to me. Much more than 4 separate gifts of stuff I don't need!

    I don't think I could unload 4 pallets of anything and not end up having someone just mop me up off the floor and pour me into my car so I can go home and collapse. The fact that you even had enough energy to stop at the store and buy anything is nothing short of miraculous to me!! emoticon

    You are not BAD! Eating some ice cream doesn't make you bad. Murdering, lying, stealing, etc. makes you bad. You just ate some high calorie food, that's all. There's nothing bad about that.

    I don't believe one cup of ice cream after unloading 4 pallets is bad at all!! And I notice that really helps me after a good physicsl workout of any type, whether physicsl work for job or exercise. The yogurt idea is good too if you need fewer fat calories, but both have dairy and that provides your muscles with the calcium and magnesium you need, plus a LITTLE bit of butterfat gives you the CLA your body needs for fat loss. A cup is one portion, one serving, the "LITTLE" bit that your body needs.

    And if you have carefully bought (or made) a good quality ice cream with few ingredients and no chemical additives and no high fructose corn syrup, the one cup will be satisfying a d you wont have that "hook" that keeps you wanting to eat more and more until the gallon (or half gallon or liter or whatever size your container is!!) completely down! (been there done that!!).

    The hot cocoa idea sounds good but would be a cold weather/winter thing for me! I wouldn't be wanting that so much in summer heat.

    Four pallets! That's quite a workout! and hey! you DID include some fruit! and if I'm reading it right, no, you did NOT blow out your calorie limit. You weren't such a bad girl after all!

    Perhaps a healthier alternative next time? Yoghurt? a protein bar? Still, I think the old me would have skipped the raspberries, had half a tub of ice-cream and completely smothered it with caramel! Lol... but that's just me.

    Just look at it as your step backward. Your two steps forward getting a good workout and staying within your calorie range. You are a Good Girl. May tomorrow be better.

    Next time go for hot cocoa since that will help with muscle soreness. It helps rebuild the muscles after a work out and you did have a work out.
