I've sinned, and there is no repentance in my heart
I had an unplanned bike ride today (a very mellow one) to Foothill College to observe a class for my master's program. It felt wrong to drive for the 4th day in a row - especially since Foothill was celebrating an early Earth Day today. So, no snack. Then, I rolled into work at 11:30 and felt too guilty to go out to get food. So, I scrounged up some stir-fried udon noodles and vegetables left over from our customer training class in the lunchroom (calorie defecit at record level at this point).
At 3:30, I finally had enough of a break to escape for my afternoon jolt at Starbuck's. I was feeling hungry, and there it was calling to me from the pastry case - an oooey, gooey fudge brownie with caramel. I brought it back to my desk and savored every one of its 580 calories. I even tore the bag open to make sure I didn't miss any crumbs or globs of caramel. I know it was wrong, but it felt so good! I guess I'll have to skip the St. Patty's Day social upstairs as part of my penance. I can't really justify a beer before riding my bike home anyway.
