I just got back from Starbucks. Excited to try their new Cocoa Cappuccino and get my free petite dessert. The desserts are clocking in at under 200 calories. So I was thought, hmm, why not get the rocky road. It's chocolate and nutty. I also grabbed the Iced Cocoa Cappuccino. I took a couple of sips of the drink on the way back. It's got some sugar in it (23g per the website)! I can feel my body not liking that. So I looked up the Rocky Road Petite Pop, 180 calories, 12g of sugar. I could feel my head swimming from the sugar in the sips of the drink. So, a friend stopped by my desk and I gave her the drink. The cake pop, I think I'll give to my boss.
While 180 calories wouldn't be the death of me, I choose not to indulge in the cake. Instead, I shall have my water and my healthy planned snack of an orange, cheese and popchips. Yes, I know it's a strange combo, but it works.
Something I need to be more conscious of, is it worth it? I see a cupcake, I want the cupcake, but is it worth me eating it? What will happen? Will I be able to stop with one cupcake, or will it induce cravings for other things. If I do decide to indulge, I need to learn to stop. I need to learn to say, "Yes, that was a nice treat. Now, back to your regularly scheduled program."
Today I woke up feeling refreshed. Refreshed with my goals, refreshed with my plan. I love mornings where all of my energy refocuses me.
