2 Pounds Lighter, but 2 Big Steps Back Today
"Ignosce mihi, Pater, quia peccavi."
Between my grilled asparagus and steamed broccoli for lunch and my rigorous work out at the gym after work I had this unnatural desire, and stupidly acted upon it to shove handfuls of toffee covered peanuts in my mouth. Why? Why? Why? My body is craving sugar, and I have been good with satiating it with fruit, but I fell back today, shamefully.
Lunch was with clients down in TriBeCa at Market Table. A quaint place and the food looked great. I say looked because there was not much I could do with the menu except get sides. So, I had the small salad with blood oranges and sides of grilled asparagus and broccoli. Both quite good.
Not an hour later I was craving something sweet, and because there is not a fruit stand at the ready in the middle of a snow/rain storm in Times Square I chose the weak path and grabbed a tin of toffee covered peanuts. Of course they advertise 0% Trans Fats, but it is sugar coated peanuts. What was I thinking? I threw away the half eaten (2/3 actually) tin in an effort to stop myself.
The gym work out was intense and I was happy that I was down 43 lbs on the scale, but in the end, it was a poor day.
