Muffin Friday!

I was very excited for Cookie Friday πŸ™‚ After lunch I went to the grocery store next door to my work. I headed straight to the bakery and was ready to grab a chocolate chip cookie…but this Chocolate Chip Muffin caught my eye instead!DSCN1072

How is this for a balanced lifestyle – a chocolate chip muffin and a health magazine? Ha. This muffin was definitely one of my “forbidden foods” – I’m glad I enjoyed it, but I still did feel a little guilty. I think I am going to continue to eat foods from my list, I don’t want to associate food with emotion or guilt anymore!DSCN1073

Lunch was PB&J, carrots and watermelon. This is exactly what I wanted. It is so nice to eat exactly what you feel like eating.DSCN1069

I started my day with a DD iced coffee with skim, but I was to excited/asleep to take a picture! What’s my deal?!

Did you have a treat today?

  1. that muffin looks glorious! i haven’t had a treat yet today, but i think i will later on.

  2. I have a cheat day on fridays, since it’s the end of my work week. Today I had lemon-pepper wings and sweet potato fries at this local Wing shop.

  3. I had the exact same lunch yesterday, you can’t beat PB+J and carrots. It’s like re-living the 4th grade πŸ˜€

  4. i’m sad because i didn’t get a dessert-y treat today because they don’t serve them over before the semester actually starts. boo, way to welcome me back to school dining hall haha. but i did get my mom to take me out to lunch which was really nice!

  5. For dinner I had salmon and fresh hickory smoked goat cheese. Those are totally my “treat” foods. Honestly, if we could, I’d request salmon every night. Alas, not the case, so it’s always special when we get some. And the goat cheese was an impulse buy from the farmer’s market and incredible

  6. I love your attitude about eating things from your list! Balance, dear! That muffin looks scrumptious.

  7. Rock on with muffin friday. I loveeee choc. chip muffins. Keep attacking that forbidden food list. πŸ˜€

  8. I can’t believe I JUST NOW found your blog! I feel like I should of known about your awesomeness before now. πŸ™‚ I love your blog and you are officially on my reader. YAY!

  9. I wanted to let you know that your post on IE and off limits food hit home this afternoon. There is a new mexican food place in town but Mexican is one of my foods on the list. I was going to go home and make a salad today but I decided to try and see how the food was. I ordered a chicken burrito that was DELICIOUS! I won’t eat it all the time but it was good and was actually healthier to eat than I thought it would be because I didn’t eat other things in place of what I really wanted.

  10. I did make some banana bread yesterday that I HAD to taste to be sure that it was ok to give to my family πŸ˜‰

  11. I’m also delving into the IE world. I was visiting friends this weekend and there were fried mashed potato’s on the menu. Normally that would have been forbidden for me- being fried- But I ordered a side order WITH my meal (!!!!) and enjoyed a few of them while sharing the others!! I truly got the whole “forbidden food” thing. I ate the most delicious lunch, enjoyed every bite, and left comfortable and not stuffed. I was glowing with happiness. I love the freedom that IE allows. Keep up the posts about it!! It’s so refreshing to hear someone going through the same thing and not giving in to “diet” talk.
