Tonight, we sent out for Chinese cause Abi wasn't feeling well nor up to cooking.It made for difficult calorie tracking though. I had a veggy eggroll...but that's not listed. SHRIMP is, so you pick that, but wonder about the calorie equivalent. Then there was the dumpling. Pork filled. I thought, well, maybe I can substitute a ravioli or a stuffed shell value. Best I could come up with was manicotti...I thought perhaps a half serving would be equivalent. And a few of the chunks of sweetnsour chicken, but it wasn't 4 ounces, so I put in as chicken nuggets. Stuff like that. I did go over the calorie limit, BUT as I looked at the week, I could see that at least the other days I was sufficiently under the max so as to average out as within limits. And I've done more than the necessary exercise. So, while I went off, I wasn't BADLY off, and don't feel "well, I've gone this bad, so I may as well go whole hog." Rather, it's back to good ol' oatmeal tomorrow, and a closer watch.Glad I kept it low the rest of the week!
