I'm going to splurge today

Tuesday, December 31, 2013

I'm feeling a bit less fluish and my mom brought me Trader Joe's Mandarin Orange Chicken. I'm truly addicted to this! I practically lived on it when I was pregnant with my daughter (which is probably part of the reason I'm where I'm at today but that's another story)

Looking at the label today, wow. I used to eat an entire bag by myself and it's 1300 calories. But it's so good! And it doesn't keep well as a leftover. Also when I went to enter it in the tracker, every single entire entry had the nutrition wrong so I had to go make my own entry. I wonder if they changed the packaging or something since other people entered it?

So I partially feel guilty and I haven't even had lunch yet. I will eat half and then see if I'm still hungry. But I'm treating myself today. I walked for 30 minutes, I'm drinking extra water to account for all that sodium and I'm going to enjoy my treat.

Mandarin Orange Chicken, Adventure Time pjs and an episode of Upstairs, Downstairs sounds heavenly to me. So do I feel a little guilty? Yes. But do I have a plan for tomorrow to "get back on track"? Also yes!

Happy New Year Spark friends!

    Chocolate covered ginger sounds amazing. The funny thing is my stomach really did not appreciate that massive dose of fat and grease all at once. I know I have the flu and all but it was really noticeable that my stomach wasn't used to that anymore.

    I emoticon Trader Joe's and am thrilled to have two opening soon not too far away. I'll have to stay away from dark choc-covered ginger. Glad you're feeling a bit better. emoticon

    I can say that moving across town from the Trader Joe's has helped so much! lol

    Thank goodness I am not around Trader Joes, as when I was there in another city with a friend, we all overate. One meal's calories, even without dessert, and leaving some, was more than a day's worth of food!

    I love Downton Abby! It's funny how much the two shows are similar. I always have to watch things late because I don't have television.

    Here's the danger of reading blogs: now i want to try this Mandarin chicken :D

    I'm so glad you're feeling a bit better, and your self-care plan sounds really good. (Did you know that Downton Abby starts this Sunday? Are you a fan?)
