I have developed a dangerous affinity for Trader Joe's plain unsweetened dried fruit, like pineapple and apple, and its freeze-dried fruit, like the bananas, apples and yes, the cranberries, tart as they are. I don't eat white sugar but that doesn't mean I don't crave concentrated sweetness; otherwise I'd be eating the un-dried fruit avidly.
Oh yes-- those are dangerous. I can't buy them, along with many other things (grapes!!)...
My work party proved hard to resist. Very hard indeed. They catered chipotle! It looked and smelled amazing and I was the only one not having any. If I had known, maybe I would have skipped lunch and had some. That's the thing though-- I had breakfast and lunch before going. The party started at 2. I would still eat dinner so I'd have an extra meal for the day. I don't know how people do that. I also avoided the desserts like the plague (and the copious alcohol). I was doing well until everyone started raving about some of the homemade desserts and I came close to caving... I took that as my cue to sneak out and leave. I went home and dd and I went geocaching! Quite fun and we got a good 90 minute hike/walk in-- some of it was quite challenging. Hopefully we'll go again soon! The scale was down .2 today which isn't much, but I know it would have been WAY up if I had succumbed to chipotle and desserts.
Going to meet our new vice principal today. Everyone seems excited about the choice so I'm hopeful.
