My Scale

Saturday, February 13, 2010

Saturday nights alright for blogging

Today was a challenge for me.  We had company coming and I didn't have time to get a full workout.  But I managed to get 3 miles on my treadmill anyway.  We had dinner plans, and I was eating at my favorite Italian restaurant.  My body was craving my usual, angel hair pasta with pomodoro sauce.  I always chose that meal because it is low in fat, but the only wheat pasta they serve is penne.  I am not a fan of penne pasta so I didn't order that.  Instead I went out of my element and ordered salmon. With angel hair "plain" on the side.  I ate half of my salmon with no more than an ounce of pasta, plus ate all my veggies and said no to the bread.  Dessert was a simple, "coffee please".  Nothing more!  I did come home to a chocolate covered strawberry that my daughter brought home for  Valentines Day.  All in all, I feel pretty good of my food choices and more importantly my portions.  I may have not had the same workout or quite the same calories, but all in all I feel that I did great compared to any past dinner at my favorite italian restaurant.

Don't deprive yourself of your favorites, it's all about the PORTION!!

The scale agreed with my food choices last night. (as you know from my blogs) I weigh myself daily. I dropped more ounces!! I did guilt myself in to a hour bike ride after my friends went to bed! Glad I did!!

Thanks for the comments, it means SO MUCH to me!! ((hugs to all))
