The actual definition of 'indulge' is “to allow oneself to enjoy the pleasure of." Respond accordingly.

What's in the Champagne flute?

  • Espresso Ice Cream from @cremeriedallarose Montreal's best artisanal ice cream made in St-Henri with local ingredients.

  • @OnyxcoffeeLab Tropical Weather is your cup of sunshine. With a floral aroma, notes of mango and pineapple, along with peach sweet tea. I knew this would be perfect brewed on stove top and served cold.

  • Belsoy Dark Chocolate pudding Small, dark and handsome, Belsoy dark chocolate pudding is 100% plant-based, creamy and naturally low in fat, free from artificial colours & preservatives, naturally lactose free.

A little bit on indulgence and mindset🤓

Today I went for a LONG bike ride, with everything going on in the world, movement, fresh air and sun felt good for my body and my mind. I came home and decided to have a little Monday afternoon indulgence. Why wait for Friday night or Saturday evening? I want the ice cream NOW *cries loudly and throws body on the floor*. So... I allowed myself to enjoy the pleasure of it. The world is extremely charged with emotion that most of us have never faced in our lifetime. I'm also an emotional eater. The important thing is that I don't beat myself up over the choices that I make in the moment. I also choose to indulge on days where I am active, knowing that I will go right back to a well balanced meal plan the rest of the week. It doesn't mean that I'm working out just for calorie intake. I train so I can feel good. It is the mindset that I have developed over years of struggling around food choices. This might not work for everyone, but I know that this works for me right now. I used to have an "all or nothing" attitude about clean eating VS indulging in sugars. It felt too restrictive and led me to binge on the weekends, all while shaming myself that I'm a bad person all around. I was setting myself up for scenarios where I would never win. I know, I can be dramatic. A little sweet treat during the week might mean that on Thursday night, I'll choose water over wine. Ah, who am I kidding, it will probably be wine 🙆🏻‍♀️. Which is totally fine, because I'll train a little harder on Friday.

Love, ice cream and coffee,
