Believe me – I am well aware that I preach “everything in moderation.”
But, since I am in charge of my preaching, I am also in charge of the exceptions.
I had my favorite salad for dinner Saturday night. I love it so much that when my friend asked me to return to The Cheesecake Factory Sunday for lunch, who am I to say no?
Please note that we both ordered the same fabulous BBQ Ranch Chicken salad only mine is without the chicken. We also go with the Skinnylicious vinaigrette on the side.
I could live on this salad for lunch and dinner every day for the rest of my life. No moderation necessary.
I could easily live on Linda’s Fudge cake topped with an ice cream sundae for the rest of my life too.
Obviously Cold Stone Creamery didn’t happen this weekend but as you can tell, I didn’t suffer.
Speaking of suffering, I chose to not run yesterday since I ran both Friday and Saturday. I am really trying to make sure I cross train often enough to avoid overusing the same muscles.
I opted for a short visit with the elliptical and then a 4- mile walk. Please understand, I absolutely hate walking without a destination.
Whenever I choose to walk as my form of exercise for the day, I always make sure that my steps land me at my local Dunkin Donuts.
If you follow me on Instagram, you already know that I celebrated National Coffee Day without even knowing it was National Coffee Day.
Although I celebrate coffee every morning of the year anyway.
Dunkin is busy making Jets and Giants donuts and I am busy wondering why they aren’t getting hyped for the start of hockey season this week.
They did have this giant cupcake cake in the Baskin Robbins side of the store that looks awesome. Even if it is lacking in the chocolate fudge icing department.
The little boy’s birthday is coming up this weekend and I have yet to figure out the birthday cake for the occasion.
You can be sure that I will heavily weigh all options over the next few days. I take dessert, especially birthday cakes, very seriously.
As we have discussed, I take a bit longer to finalize dessert decisions, but rest assured, I always come through.
I NEED TO KNOW:
Do you ever frequent your favorite restaurant two days in a row?
Best thing you ate all weekend?
Did you celebrate National Coffee Day?
What is your idea of the best birthday cake?
