… Also known as “hello old friend”
While I welcomed back my routine earlier today last night i got to welcome back an old friend into my life.
Back in February you may recall I started to… hoard… a certain product…
(FYI: When you googled “becel spray butter discontinued” I’m the fourth site to pop up… and it’s also one of my biggest search terms… Sad. So Sad)
Well since the parentals were in the States I asked them to pick me up a bottle.
A) the bottles are not 50% BIGGER
B) they bought me TWO
Yes, I just rolled out of bed
No, I am not wearing make up
Yes, I know how scary this photo is.
I busted it out this morning… a bit of SB and cinnamon on a toasted whole wheat english muffin with a little sugar free maple syrup for dipping. Perfection.
I know a lot of people are against the whole… “fake foods” stuff… but for me, having a bit of spray butter, sugar free syrup, etc keeps me happy, keeps me on my diet and well… to be honest while yes, once upon a time I abused these things now it’s more of a treat/occassional use item rather than “I will die if I don’t have it”
… which is kind of how I felt when I ran out of my stash of spray butter during prep.
It’s the little things people.
But on the other end of the spectrum I’m sitting here eating a… giant bowl of roasted zucchini.
Life is all about balance. That’s the beauty of off season. I get more macros, therefore more options to change things up and experiment. I’d like to think that once I start prep again (… that’s a whole other post, we all knew retirement wasn’t going to last) I’ll be more adventurous… but deep down I know my routine and habits will kick in again.
Regardless… I’m enjoying the real… and the not so real foods this offseason and hopefully it gives me the results I’m working my behind off for. I’ve had several people in the last week ask if I’m a bodybuilder/compete because of my workouts which makes me pretty thrilled… but I guess when you’re using the entire plate stack for high rope pulls you get noticed?!
How do you feel about fake foods? Ok in moderation? Can’t live without? No way?
