Yesterday was my birthday. It turned out to be a fun-filled day, and I didn't do too bad food-wise. I saved up my flex points to use, plus I had all of my daily points. I had just a light breakfast (granola bar & light string cheese), then lunch was at the Olive Garden. That's not exactly a good place to eat healthy... but I didn't do so bad. I only ate 1 1/2 breadsticks, instead of the 3 or so I used to eat. I ordered soup/salad for my meal, but didn't even eat much of that b/c we had an appetizer. I did splurge on the appetizer, but I counted points generously, to make sure I wasn't eating more than I had points for. My parents brought me a cake, and Mike & I shared a small piece.
Later that day, I went out and had a few drinks w/family. Those were unexpected points b/c I hadn't planned on a bar trip for my bday. But, I budgeted my points, and that was that. I also had a junior size chocolate shake that was unexpected, but again, I budgeted for it.
Dinner was pretty good. A friend and I went to Flat Top Grill, which is a create your own stir-fry place. I *love* it. I had tons of veggies, some noodles, and chicken. It was delicious! Then my friend came home w/me for a little while & we had cake.
I stepped on the scale this morning to see if yesterday stuck to me too much, and I was still showing that I was down a couple pounds from Tuesday's WI. I don't "count" these middle of the week weigh-ins, but I like to check just to see how I'm doing. I didn't get to the gym at all this weekend, which I'm a little bummed about, but I'll just have to get there tomorrow!
I hope everyone else had a good, HEALTHY weekend!
