“Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own? For you were bought at a price; therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God’s.” 1 Corinthians 6:19, 20.

I won ! Me - 1 , Sweets - ZERO

So I headed to Zumba after school. I had a huge traffic snafu when I tried an alternate way around a long long line of cars at a left turn lane and ended up having to go back across the entire intersection again.... Hard to explain if you aren't local so anyhow. I was a few min late into Zumba class. 

I was so excited for class tonight as my goal was to increase my heart rate and calorie burn from last time. Very soon into class I did something funny up on my toes or jumping I pulled a calf muscle. I tried for a few minutes to go on but it was getting worse. I had to leave. At that time (within about 15 min) I had burned 125 calories so things were headed in a great direction. My average heart rate was up and so was my max from last time. I was bummed. I headed home to ice it.  

So on the way home I was upset and quite frankly wanted something sweet. Really bad! I'm such an emotional eater. That's when the addiction to sweets gets tough. 

So I had a few thoughts. A single scoop of vanilla ice cream from chic fil a. No... Not a good choice. A vanilla come from sonic. No... Not a good choice. I needed to stop in Kroger maybe a Hershey bar from line... NO NO NO!!! Not a good choice. I made myself resist and made it home. It was a true battle with myself. While at Kroger I purchased some vanilla almond milk to make some fake ice cream. I used my sport bottle blender. I mixed 12 oz almond milk, 6-8 ice cubes, 2 TBSP of PB2 (powdered peanut butter w cocoa) and 2 tsp of butterscotch sugar free pudding mix. It tastes like a butterfinger bar when you mix these things in a protein shake but I added the ice and put it off into the freezer to make fake ice cream. (No protein powder of any type)

It is super good! (Maybe less ice next time)

I divided all I made into four servings approx 1/2 cup each. 

Weight Watchers it is 1 point for a serving

Calorie counters. Each serving is 41 calories. (Only 1.5 g fat)

For me this was a huge success! I beat the craving to eat sweets because I was frustrated/ upset. I've iced my calf and its pretty sore. I will see what tomorrow brings. 

I helped get a running group together at work and tomorrow is a running day I sure hope I'm able to run tomorrow!
