sugar high

I didn’t sleep very well last night; it was as if I could FEEL the sugar running through my bloodstream!  Seriously…I think I’ve become so used to a “whole foods diet” that something like a giant sundae with all the fixings will totally throw my body for a loop.  Rule of thumb: extravagant desserts are for super-special occasions, single-scoops are for treats.

I fueled up this morning with the last two slices of my Great Harvest cinnamon raisin bread, fruit and yogurt before pilates and kickboxing.  My lunch, however, was worth writing home about:

YUM YUM YUM YUM YUM.  I’m trying to finish off my quart of plain yogurt before our trip this weekend to Dayton, so I decided to build a meal around it.  I spooned about 3/4 C into a bowl, swirled in some Trader Joe’s Mango butter to sweeten it up, and topped with granola, shredded coconut, flax seeds, flaxseed meal, dried cranberries and blueberries.  It was almost TOO sweet!  And at 485 calories, it better keep me full for AWHILE.

I’m going to be a busy girl today–LOTS of phone calling, computering and perhaps a trip to the mall.  I have TWO freebie coupons from Victoria’s Secret and Bath & Body Works–can’t wait!
