Good evening! I hope everybody is having a great Thursday. I am looking forward to the weekend, although I have this cough that I just can’t shake and after my first ab workout in years last night, coughing is not my friend.
Right now I am doing one of my favorite things, sitting on my duff watching DVR from my favorite spot on our sectional. This used to be the time I would binge (I am 4 days binge free!!). I would have a multitude of snacks and desserts from now until bed time. So, I’ve subbed a new ritual for that old one. I make myself a cup of caffeine free hot tea and have a small snack or sweet. Tonight it is 8 sea salt and chocolate covered almonds from Trader Joe’s. Two of the nights I just had tea.
I was remarking to my husband how much smaller my dessert bowl is!
Another ritual I replaced was my morning latte. I used to foam cream and then add coffee. It’s delicious. So I switched to hot tea with one stevia. It saves me about 140 or so calories per day. But man alive did I have a horrendous head ache for a few days. However, I am treating myself to the lattes on the weekends, I will just cut back some where else.
Well, I gotta pay attention to SVU.
Have a good night!
I fOllie Joanna Gaines (Fixer Upper) on Instagram, she is working towards 21 days of working out in a row bc 21 days consistently develops a habit! Keep it up. Hoping to change my binge ritual now. Thanks for sharing.
I will have to check her out! It helps to have a plan. I learned it from a podcast I listen to called Half Size Me.
Good for you, friend. I have also been indulging in tea in the evenings…Bigelow Vanilla chai is a favorite.
I will have to try! Love chai flavor!
