Ok yall so I had my normal for breakfast this morning: English muffin, egg whites, cheese and a banana. Coffee, of course.
Then I totally didn't eat lunch until I had a banana on the way to the wedding.
At the wedding...this was my plate.
I got one pimento cheese triangle on bread, two quishes (cant spell that), a bit of a cheeseball, like 4 ritz looking crackers, a chocolate covered strawberry (which hubby took a bite of and I bit his twice for pay back!) I had some spinach dip, a tiny bit of ranch I barely used and some sort of fruit dip. I loaded up on the free fruit and veggies. I had one meat ball and ate part of a mini weenie wrapped in bacon.
As for the cake...it was gorgeous.
I SOOOO wanted some from the minute I saw it.
I had one bite of hubbys.
Then I tried a bit of my grandmas coconut custard that my mom was eating. I am talking a very SMALL bite.
Yall, this was totally a WIN! I did not get my own desert or really even "share" with someone, as my mom suggested we do. LOL. Sharing means I will eat 3-4 bites which is probably equal to a small piece.
What I try to think about (here lately) when I am in the moment wondering how I will survive without all this wonderful food..is that a party only lasts for a few hours, then I will be away from it and GLAD I did not eat it.
I wanted to go out to eat so bad because I was still hungry! That little plate with barely no protein, was my LUNCH. At like 4pm LOL. But I didn't.
Came home, had a turkey sandwich, mustard only and French onion soup with shreadded cheese.
I then had some of these babies:
You can have a serving for 3pts and I had 4pts worth.
I also had a coffee to go with it.
I am very pleased with my choices today but I really wish I hadn't even had that small bite of cake. But honestly, I think it was ok and I don't have a real big regret because I did not go over board and I did NOT eat mindlessly.
At the wedding they also had a candy bar...I had ONE cookies and cream Hershey kiss while I was waiting in line to get food. And after I ate (and was wanting more food and cake..) I had some mints from the candy bar instead, to clean my palate!!
I was really happy about that idea!
SO tomorrow is the baby shower, which I am hoping to load up on the free fruits and veggies and limit the other foods. And again, stay away from the cake.
I will try to report back tomorrow night! It really helps to post here and hold myself accountable!!
Its been dreary and rainy here pretty much all day long. I have had the pumpkin/cinnamon smells going today, so excited tomorrow is the first day of fall!!!
I hope you all are having a wonderful weekend!
