Sleeping In Never Felt So Good

Yesterday was a pretty long day. Work is getting busy and my workouts are getting tougher. I had a lot of stuff to do after work. One of the things I needed to do was grocery shop. I like to get it out of the way before the weekend comes and all the crazy people are at the store.

I love the things I bought. I bought some fruit: watermelon, bananas, plantains, and apples. Yum!!

Don't worry, I also bought some "bad" things. I will only buy cookies that I won't make. I will never make stuffed cookies (I don't think they will taste the same). So, I bought some. I haven't had these since I was a kid.

Then, I also bought Jason his favorite ice cream, mint chocolate chip. Don't you just love the bowl that I ate it out of? Can you tell which one is mine? It was just the perfect amount of ice cream.

Food consumption is all a mind game for me. If I tell myself that I am full (when I've had way too many calories), I can be full. It took a while for me to be able to do this. I am eating the prefect amount of calories (most of the time, the are the nutrient I need). Every calorie I put in my body, should be useful. But, sometimes, it doesn't work out like that. I am only human.

It's officially, Fridays are back to being my rest days. I never would have thought that sleeping until 6 am is sleeping in. It felt so good to "sleep in". I'm still a little tired, but I only woke up 15 minutes ago.

What do you call sleeping in? What's your favorite "bad" food?


  1. Sleeping in is 7:30 for me. And when I wake up that late I always have a panic moment. Don't you hate that? Like when you think you're late for something but you're not. Heart racing. :)

    My favorite bad food...sugar cookies and dr. pepper. Nothing like a sugar/caffeine rush. :)

  2. Yep sleeping in = 6am for me too!
    And yes the crazies are all at the stores on the weekend...ugh. Enjoy the cookies!

  3. Sleeping is for me is about 7:30. Food isn't bad! But sweet favorites are jawbreakers. Pure sugar!

  4. I love using tiny dishes for small quantities of dessert - it feels like more!
