today i’m choosing not to believe in this old adage as I quite possibly had the worst food day of the YEAR.
it began this morning when i didn’t begin the day with breakfast—FAIL numero uno. I am definitely a breakfast girl but today i fell off the wagon!
a fast-food lunch as my first food of the day should have been light-bulb moment number one…yet it only got worse.
i had the distinct pleasure of meeting up with Miss Emily for an afternoon treat at Coldstone — I quickly decided to let the fact that the sorbet (not the worst thing I could have gotten!) shared with my sweet friend over some MUCH needed catch up time was well worth the extra sugar intake!
And don’t worry, the food failures only continued. Next it was off to meet Chels and Erin for a spontaneous dinner at Lily’s in the fabulous little Five Points neighborhood of Raleigh. Lily’s is a local pizza joint that just so happens to have recently won the title of “Best Pizza” in the Triangle — long story short, I concur and enjoyed every bite of my spinach & mushroom pie!
By this point I have resigned myself to the fact that there remains no nutritional hope for the day so yes, you guessed it, we decided to dash over to The Cupcake Shoppe for a bite of something sweet to end the evening. Thankfully the cupcakes are not ginormous and we decided to split two cupcakes (Simply Cinnamon & Peanut Butter Cup) three ways ( ;
though i will be working double time in the next few days to work some extra fruit & veggies into my diet, I must admit today’s MANY “not so good for you” splurges were enjoyed with some of my favorite people and accompanied by amazing conversations — therefore i feel no remorse over a single bite!
here’s to an occasional “junk food” day, cheers!
