    Nachos sound good! I ate all the sugary stuff in the house yesterday after not eating back my exercise calories the day before, I could've had something amazing for what I ate (like a couple pieces of carrot cake!).

    A new chocolate bar that I've been looking forward to trying.

    Y'all are probably not surprised.

    I could spend some serious money on that site...they have free shipping for orders of $75+ and I would have no trouble at all getting there!

    This one definitely caught my eye: https://barandcocoa.com/collections/bars/products/arete-cheesecake-chocolate-bar. Yes, it's expensive, but it has freeze dried cheesecake in it!

    I had the week off and I've been "treating myself" for the past three days, so... today I've been treating my hangover instead.

    I'm thinking a teapot of linden & mint tisane and in bed by 9pm.

    Last night I went out for Mediterranean and had some delicious things including Baba Ghanoush, Dolmehs, and Hummus. I also had some mojitos. It was great.

    I must be the only person on the planet who doesn't like nachos. Too spicy and too hot. If you let them sit until they're cool enough to eat, the cheese stops being gooey and the chips get soggy. I also don't like mac and cheese *ducks*. It just has an odd mouthfeel with that offputting contrast between slippery macaroni and thick cheese sauce. Alcohol tastes weird. I never developed a taste for it so I rarely drink it. You can tell I'm no fun.

    I don't do anything special on Fridays, but last Friday we had family over. They had drinks and I stole a few cans of the flavored soda and sparkling water they had to mix into alcohol. I also had more fruit juice in one day than I had in the last 3 months. All kinds of fruit juice. I was in heaven.

    I don't like fruit juice... unless mixed with said alcohol :D

    While we're on the topic of foods we *don't* like... I also don't like macaroni and cheese unless it is the Spongebob shapes... LOL. Not a fan of pasta i general. I can do pasta salads or tortellini... Lasagna I like, but I hardly consider that pasta. Don't like heavy-dense alfredos and spaghetti. ALSo not a fan of garlic bread! People think I'm insane.

    Today I made a huge pot of Moroccan lentil orzo soup (so amazing!) and got a "goth oreo" from the new vegan bakery down the road - sooo good! D&D is tonight so glad I saved calories all week for pizza :)

    I don't like nachos either, not worth the calories. Maybe if it was just cheese and chips and a good cheese, not that yucky stuff that's usually on them.

    I burned 1500 cals today just to splurge on some air fryer wings and a california cheese steak w/bacon from a local place that makes the best around. I don't know how many calories are in it, but lets just say that 1500 cal burn definitely isn't going to even the score. Luckily i haven't ate anything today so i guess im still in a deficiet if i stay under 2500 cal total.

    *sigh* the things we do to eat the things we love while dieting....

    I made the most killer ground turkey with black & red bean chili today. That's my splurge....had it for lunch and dinner. Stayed within deficit as usual.

    Yes. Chili is a classic... can't go wrong! My favorite healthy indulgence... Really, so satisfying yet still really healthy/well rounded.

    I just got back from a week of all inclusive in turkey. Hummus, babba ganouah, backlava waffles and ice cream. And some swimming and walking to offset the damage.
    Worth the one pound gain on the scale. Fingers crossed it’s water weight but I don’t think sooooo
