So last night was a prime example of how social occasions can derail the best laid plans. I had good friends over for supper. I made homemade chicken enchiladas which I hadn't made in a long time. These are a pretty calorie dense main course but I can and have fit them into my eating plan. I make them with all white lean chicken, chilis, light sour cream, reduced fat cheese, enchilada sauce and whole grain flour torillas. I also made Spanish rice with brown rice, a lettuce salad of sorts, mixed fruit and a light furit crisp for dessert. A lot of food but all good choices. I had eaten fairly moderately early in the day, except I had some sunchips with my sandwich at lunch (my first marginal choice of the day) and I had a plan. I had allowed myself 2 enchilada, I was going to just barely taste the rice and eat some fruit and salad and a very small serving of the dessert. I just didn't stay with my plan and had more rice, more enchilada and more dessert than planned. The food was good, the company was good and I ate.
Now this is not the first time this has happened and I am sure it wont be the last. I have it in perspective and I was really probably only 200-300 calories over my range for the day, I had fit some excercise in yesterday, its not the end of the world. I am just wishing I made a little better choices and had shown a little more self restraint. Sometimes I am kind of a glutton even now. I guess that must mean it is time to go excercise.
