Indulgences and moderation

I asked a question on facebook yesterday about what your favorite indulgences are. I got all sorts of answers – from bourbon to cookies to dunkin’ donuts. Reading them all just made me more hungry. My “can’t live without” is the oh-so-perfect chocolate milkshake from chick-fil-a. That may sound boring. But it’s completely irresistible to me. Cannot resist!

I’ve talked before about allowing yourself to live a little. Eat some of the things you love. It’s about moderation, and to me, my moderation is about 2 of those milkshakes every month or so. (I also have plenty of my 2nd favorite indulgence, a good red wine, almost every night of the week).

So here were are, today’s the kentucky derby and I thought I’d share a favorite of mine for today. It’s a Mint Julep. Yum!! And it’s just ice, mint, 1 teaspoon of sugar and TWO shots of a good bourbon. I’ll have one today, but I worked out this morning, HARD. It’s all about balance.


Tell me, what’s YOUR favorite indulgence and what do you do to level it out? Do you have any things you cannot live without? How do you work them into your healthy lifestyle?

    I can’t resist a custard cake or creme brulee which is why I try NOT to be exposed by those desserts. My alternative is eating fat-free pudding instead.
