Happy St. Patrick’s Day

Sine I am technically finished with Beta (even though I am still doing the workouts until Gamma arrives), I am allowed to drink booze.

One would think that I am all gung ho about it, but really I’m not.  I thought that maybe I would have a green beer or something, but yesterday I saw a bit of a St. Patty’s Day parade and today is my nephew’s birthday so I am celebrating without the calories.  I’m good.

Chocolate

I do love this stuff and I had a quite a few chocolate chips this weekend.  It was my cheat for my 5 week completion on Beta, but I have to tell you that it was really too easy to have and lose count of.  Damn that sweet yumminess.  I have to think of a better way to have it without losing it a little bit.  I am looking for recipes that incorporate just a bit of chocolate to give you the taste of it without there being a lot of it present.  The hunt is on.

Enjoy your day everyone and be safe!!  May the luck of the Irish be with you!

  1. Do you like dark chocolate – the good stuff that’s a little expensive – at least 70% cacao? I find that just two pieces of dark chocolate satisfies my chocolate craving without making me overindulge because it doesn’t contain a lot of sugar. I like Endangered Species 72%. Two squares are 100 calories and the perfect after dinner treat for me. Just a thought.

    • Ooooh! Thanks for the suggestion!! That sounds like a good alternative. I will put it on my grocery list and let you know the results of this experiment. I really have to get out of the habit of that multiple motion to my mouth. It’s why I like the choco chips so much. It’s like a trance. LOL! I will cut the two pieces up into smaller pieces to get that result, but my goal it to not have to do that and be more conscious.

      • Ah, yes, the mindless eating. I’m totally familiar with that.

        I read somewhere that the body and mind need to go through the conscious awareness of eating, so if you tune out the process, you may be compelled to continue to eat because your mind doesn’t know you ate. I don’t know whether I totally buy into it, but I do find that when I eat slowly and really taste my food, especially the chocolate, I’m not as likely to want to continue eating. I also can’t let myself get too hungry or eat too much sugary foods, which are all triggers that make me overeat.

        Let me know how the dark chocolate experiment goes. 🙂

      • So true! Mindless eating! I have to really sit and try to slow down and enjoy! With my nutrition plan I find myself often saying what meal is next? I miss the consciousness. This is a great advice and I’m sure others go through it as well. I’m focusing on that this week.
