Now here are my feelings on this. First of all, I don't feel too badly about it considering I didn't eat much during the day - not intentionally, I just wasn't that hungry. However, I am in total agreement that fast food is just plain unhealthy for you and should be avoided at all costs. I don't eat out that much, but when I do it's usually during a similar drunk moment. One of those things you wake up and remember the next day with a resounding "ewwwww". I definitely need to stop doing this. Therefore, I am making it official.
ALYCIA'S HEALTFUL EATING RULE NUMBER ONE:
Never, under any circumstances, go to Taco Bell drunk
I'm going to keep a running list of all these rules and try resiliently to follow them. I need to think of other, healthy things to replace them with. For instance, instead of going to devour some TB like it's my job, I can go home and make a yummy, healthy quesadilla! Yeahhhh I'm totally going to try that next time. I just hate feeling like I've ruined all the good I've done, but I promised to be completely honest in this little endeavour and I plan to divulge every horrible decision I make (as embarassing as it may become). Does anyone else have a terrible food weakness like mine? I sure would like to hope so!
In other news, one of my personal favorite blogs, The Fitnessista, is collecting smoothie recipes!!! Yay!! I love smoothies! All entries have to be emailed to her by Monday and although I've been trying to get creative, I think I'm just going to submit my all-time favorite fallback - the Almond Butter Banana Smoothie.
You take some of this:
And you get this!
Mmmmm so good! I know it's not very originial, but it's just so freaking delicious! Here's the actual recipe.
Almond Butter Banana Smoothie
1 medium sized banana
1/2 cup milk of choice
1/2 scoop chocolate protein

Blend all the above ingredients together and drink in the satisfaction. Yum!
The only thing left for me to do is list what I've eaten today! I haven't really been sitting down for a meal since I've been traveling to get home most of the day so there aren't any pictures (my visual log is falling apart already!). It looks like a simple bulleted list is in order!
- 3 pink lady apples
- 1 banana
- Almond Butter Banana Smoothie
- Small bowl of Zuppa
- Salad with Italian Dressing
- 2 Breadsticks (bread is my kryptonite!)
- 2 decent sized brownies
- a few spoonfuls of cool whip
- 2 pretzel candies that my mom makes because they're delicious and I can never turn them down
- 1 Doo-see-doo girl scout cookie
Well, that's all I've got for now. Tomorrow = shopping and a run! I can't wait to scope out the Ross! Totally excited. Catch ya on the flipsideee and good night!
