Fighting those Killer Cravings…
Hope all of you have great plans in line for this coming weekend. I don’t know about all of you, but my week has dragged along and I’m really looking forward to enjoying these few days!
I woke up this morning with some killer cravings: Sweet Tooth Alert!
I went to bed not ‘stuffed’ so in my mind that means ‘I’m hungry’ and this is just an ongoing battle that I’ve been fighting since day one. So, as the usual routine goes, I’ll go get an ice cold glass of water or two and just try and satisfy that urge that way instead of shoveling unnecessary crap in my mouth. And it worked.. Or so I thought.
As soon as I dragged myself out of bed and started packing my lunch for the day I got this sudden urge to have something sweet. I’m envisioning everything from cheesecake to chocolate cake, tapioca pudding, a red velvet cupcake with creamy, cheesecake frosting, hot chocolate, cookies, etc. You name it and I wanted it! lol
I grabbed a Fit & Active 100 calorie Chocolate Chip Crisps snack out of the cabinet as I left. When I got to work I just sat it on my desk and it was like taunting me. I didn’t want to eat it unless I absolutely couldn’t stand not eating it. So then an hour went by and I opened it and then decided to only have a few. And they were good, somewhat satisfying, but they weren’t a freaking gooey, delicious cupcake…
Hadn’t had my coffee because I was craving hot chocolate too on top of everything else.. So my only other solution was to go on Pinterest and waste my time distracting myself. Well, that didn’t work either because we all know what’s on there… Yummy Foods. I saw a recipe that was creating something from Starbucks and it made something click..
Starbucks + Sweet Tooth Cravings = Danger?!
In all actuality, it was the best idea. Starbucks is practically a sweet treat/dessert in a cup. I looked up their low fat/skinny options and decided to get a Tall, Non-Fat (skim milk), Mocha (only 2 pumps of chocolate syrup). Only 100 or so calories and the funny thing is that I didn’t even drink the whole thing! It’s 12 ounces and I couldn’t even get more than half of it down… Coffee and Chocolate. Girls best friend? Perhaps.
