A Rice Krispie Bar and a Coffee

Hi everyone! I'm writing from yet another patio, only this one is at a Caribou Coffee. The sun is out, it's about 81 degrees, and I'm processing yet another amazing visit with an old friend. This vacation has exceeded all my expectations. You know how I said in my last blog that I was going to go back to my hotel to write? Yeah, well, I changed my plans (see my last ZenBagLady blog). I did something completely spontaneous and it turned out to be the perfect decision.

I've been eating well, sticking to my plan, and today I had a Rice Krispie bar and a coffee with half-and-half for lunch. And it was fabulous. Gooey, sticky, sweet...exactly the kind of vacation indulgence I was looking for. I don't feel guilty. Never even occurred to me to feel guilty. I feel, well, normal. And normal is good.

I just wanted to check in and let ya'll know I appreciate your well wishes and comments while I'm on the road. Makes me feel not so far away, you know?


  1. Y'know, Rice Krispie bars are merely bits of air held together with marshmallow, so it's all good.

  2. Kudos to you Lynn we are with you.


  3. I loved your zenbaglady post. Being in the moment can often outweigh "the plan." Good for you!

  4. Brilliant idea-- you look absolutely radiant with happiness in those pictures!

  5. I think that is so awesome that you don't feel guilty and you shouldn't. I just posted on my blog about how "normal" people eat and then get right back on track.

  6. Lynn,

    I am struggling with the guilt of having indulgences. How do you do it? What inner dialogue do you have before (and after) you eat that Rice Crispy Treat?
