So how did I do...

Tuesday, September 14, 2010

So...I had a birthday dinner last evening...at a buffet nonetheless! Yikes!!! But I had a plan going into it already set in my head... I think it is fair to report that I stuck to the plan ... until I got to the end of the meal. My original plan was to stick with veggies and protein. So when I got there...I got my plate and headed to the salad bar. I made a delicious salad full of all the right stuff. Then I got some steak and all the sides that went with it were veggies of some sort. Yes, I know that cooked cabbage at a buffet is not exactly the same caloric intake as it would be if I made it at home...but it was a better choice than mashed potatoes and gravy or mac & cheese...I picked brocolli, carrots, etc...no cheese sauce... And then the end of the meal came. If only I would have stopped but I didn't. I got a small spoonful of apple cobbler and a small serving of soft serve ice cream. I broke my promise to myself...veggies and protein... But, in retrospect...I could have done much worse. The nice thing I recognized exactly what I was doing and I controlled my indulgence. Immediately when I got home...I changed into my walking clothes and got in 2.5 miles. There was nothing more I could do. I am not beating myself up...I made the choice and then I made a choice to try and counteract my indulgence. I mean after all...it is life...and sometimes a small serving of apple cobbler just comes your way. Back on track today.
