As I’m sure a lot of you heard yesterday, “Fat Tuesday” took place. If you are aware of the Lenten season that appears in the catholic church, the six weeks leading up to Easter, Fat Tuesday is the day before Ash Wednesday, when the Lenten season officially begins. Last year, I gave up dessert for the entire six weeks, and this year, I’ve decided to do it again! (Expect I’m going on vacation for Spring Break and may indulge a little since it’s still during Lent ).
Since yesterday was my last day to eat anything “dessert” related, I made sure to indulge a little more than I would on a normal day. Gotta get my fix to last for more than a month
TJs waffle topped with banana cream sauce
I had yoga yesterday morning at school and had to leave early, so I made something quick. I stocked up on Trader Joe’s wheat free waffles (THE best frozen waffles in my opinion) last weekend, and knew just what I wanted when it was time to eat.
After school I headed to the gym to get in my workout for the day (ate an amazeball on the way). Today on the schedule was a four-mile run. I listened to my new playlist again and it made the run fly by!
TJs tomato soup, grilled cheese & avocado, and grapes
I was expecting to work today for a little, so I made a quick lunch so I’d have time to eat. That was the first time I had tried TJs roasted pepper tomato soup and boy was it good. I think I know what my lunch will be today And as far as work, we didn’t get any freight so I didn’t end up having to go in. Definitely yay for that!
cookie and chocolate-covered cherries
Those cookies were staring at my from the counter so I had to have one. As were the chocolate-covered cherries. I blame Fat Tuesday.
Last year Emily and I went to dinner on Fat Tuesday “just because” so I suggested going again this year. We’re both big fans of Mexican food, so Mexican it was!
spinach quesadilla with beans + unpictured chips and guacamole
I think I could eat Mexican food everyday and be content. Since it was Fat Tuesday and all, and also known as the last day we could eat ice cream (Emily is giving it up too), her and Jordan made a pit stop at Dairy Queen on the way home. I, however, had something else on my mind.
I think the best ratio is 1/2 froyo, 1/2 toppings. Am I right?
And did anyone catch last night’s episode of Pretty Little Liars? So many more questions to be answered. I cannot wait until next week’s episode!
Peace and Love,
Did you participate in Fat Tuesday?
If you celebrate, are you giving up anything for Lent?
