Do As I Say, NOT…..

I was roaming around WordPress today checking out other run bloggers and came across Arkansas Runner Girl.  The post was on will power.  I realized that I’ve totally failed on that as of late.  I read and shared on my facebook page this morning about the benefits of almonds for runners.  In order to follow-up personally, I wanted to add some almonds into my routine today.  I, of course, didn’t have any with me so I went over to Walgreens to grab some almonds for my desk.  I needed an apple too so it was an easy decision even though I try to be religious about bringing all my food/snacks to the office with me. 

And then I noticed that Mars products were on sale today.  2 for $2.  So I succumbed to the M&M temptation because they were “on sale”.

Then what happened?  I ate the M&Ms and NOT the apple.  I’m pretty sure this was a nutrition FAIL.

Bottom line, do as I say, not as I do.

Do the “sale” items always fall into your cart too or am I the only one with this problem?  I probably wouldn’t have bought those stupid M&Ms if they had been full price!

Now, I’m leaving to go run off those M&Ms.  I’ll see YOU on the trail!
