After being as diligent as possible on this new lifestyle of mine, chinese food last night was heaven. Sure I've ate out a couple of times, but Chinese food is my ultimate favorite food. I ordered a bunch of different types of chinese food cause it was me and the boyfriend eating it, and had a little of everything. I hadn't gotten a chance yesterday to eat breakfast, and my lunch was only 6 points, so I had like 27 points left for the rest of the day. Before I went to get the food, I researched the point values on WW of the stuff I was ordering and when I got home I measured out the portions that corresponded with the points I researched earlier and oh I was so in heaven, happy and full. :) I used 24 points on dinner (NOT something I normally do) and saved the last three for a snack later in the evening if I so chose (which I did have a cheesestick about 8pm). Best dang use for the 24 points in a long time lol. Yes, I realize chinese food is full of sodium, and yes I know it's not the most healthy choice, but if I don't live once in a while by having food I enjoy I'll be miserable and much less likely to stick with the program. For now, it's back to eating the normal good for me food :) I do, however, have to figure out what I'm having for dinner, as my BF has his daughter tonight so it's just me! Grocery store after work here I come! lol.
But anyway, beyond that, it's Thursday, I'm getting off work early tonight (woohoo!) because the Doc has to catch a plane to SanDiego for some meeting over the weekend and life is good :)
I hope today finds everyone well. For now I am off, I have a homework assignment to continue to plug away at :)
