Can't stop the sweet tooth

Today while working out I felt kind of weak & tired. I walked for 8 minutes then ran for 8 minutes. It's sad, but I can hardly take 8 minutes of running. (what has happened to me?!) Then I joined a workout group already in progress and did a series of arm workouts. When they began doing these arm holds (similar to yoga downward dog stance) I decided to duck out and ran on the EFX elliptical machine for 5 minutes - until completely giving up and getting ready for work.

I also did a bad thing this morning... I ate a chunk of chocolate...and it was really good. Should I feel bad? Because I don't. It made me happy.

Today's diet:

Breakfast: slim fast shake & apple

Lunch: "Health plate" (veggies, 1/4 cup cottage cheese, 1/4 cup chicken salad, 4 squares of cantaloupe

Dinner: (haven't gotten there yet - but I am planning on eating a spinach salad with almonds, small bits of steak tips, green peppers, cheese & tomatoes - with a light fat free vinaigrette) and a potato.

I have been trying to rationalize going to get ice cream by riding my bike as a form of exercise to the ice cream shop.... hopefully my boyfriend will remind me that I don't really need it.
