Scones!

Good evening, all!  I spent the last hour or so working on a post about healthy body image and eliminating negative self-talk, but it just wasn’t “clicking” the way I hoped it would, if you know what I mean.  I’m trying to stop being so hard on myself all the time, but, unfortunately, it is a really hard habit to break.  I wish I felt more comfortable saying nice things about myself, but I’m not there yet, and as a result the post just wasn’t working.  Hopefully I’ll get there soon.  :-/

On a lighter note, here’s breakfast:

Venti skinny vanilla latte and oatmeal with brown sugar mixed in from my friendly neighborhood Starbucks.  Delicious!  I’ve never been much of a morning person, and now that my commute is only five blocks each way, I get up at the last possible second and run out the door without even thinking about breakfast!  🙂 After an hour or so of work I make my way down the block to the ‘bucks (that way, I miss most of the morning rush!) and get something to eat.  While it is a bit pricey, I think it’s a pretty solid “fast food” breakfast choice that keeps me full all morning.

After some more work and a training session, my co-worker and I decided on an adorable tea & scones shop for lunch.  I might be a little obsessed with this place!  I got:

One pumpkin scone and one honey wheat scone, served with clotted cream and preserves, and a pot of green tea.  SO delicious!  I was “good” and only ate half of each:

Can’t wait to have the leftovers tomorrow!

After work I wasn’t really feeling the gym, so instead I took the pup to our local dog park to blow off some energy.  I had a Fruit-2-day as a snack — sort of a chewy smoothie-type thing with 2 servings of fruit — while Barkley did his business.  Unfortunately, he was getting a little bit too much *attention* from the other doggies, if you know what I mean (despite the fact that he’s a neutered boy dog!), so we left after about 15 minutes.  The roundtrip walk (about a mile) really tuckered him out, and he’s passed out by my feet as I type this.  🙂

Time for dishes, baseball, dinner and baking!  Back later!

  1. It is hard to stop the fat talk — I know — but I just try and say as many nice things about myself and others on my blog and in real life, and at some point, it just feels unnatural to say anything nasty!

    Plus, when I beat up on myself, I just look at my dog and his silly grin and know that THAT is true love. 🙂
