Update - Pork fried rice and 4 chicken wings

Tuesday, March 23, 2010

Well yesterday, i closed the ofice , laid out 2 packets each of soy sauce and duck sauce and chow down...I even crunch the bones of the wings.. Well when it was all over i still knew that i had healthy practices in place and that having chinese take-out - once monthly or once in a while is ok.. moderation .. beats over saturation of the no-no foods.. So that was it, no bells no whistles.. but it was good and I went home and had some fresh salmon salad with crackers for dinner.. so emoticon me.. I am also going to contine to view my reward log, sometimes, sometimes during the day I lose focus.. emoticon Truth in Blogging!!!!

    Mmmmm Chinese! I have a similar policy - I'll indulge in the not-so-good stuff every now and then because I know it I try to cut it out completely I'll go nuts after a while and binge on the bad foods, thus getting upset with myself and frustrated to the point that I give up on my weight loss efforts (its happened oh so many times before).

In my opinion, anything is ok as long as we understand to eat it in moderation :-)

Pork Fried Rice and 4 chicken wings...Please

Friday, March 19, 2010

Lunch today was late, I had my once weekly blueberry muffin and one orange, so i was hanging tough. Was going for my power walk.

Yes I walk during lunch and do liitle quick starts when i go to the bathroom. I go to the bathroom often, because i drink 8 plus glasses of water.

Oh I digress, so as I was heading down 58th crossing 3rd avenue, i thought hmm i should reward myself and have the combination: pork fried rice and fried chicken wings... As I headed towards 2nd Avenue I started pumping my arms and getting into the proper power walk groove..

Then i turned the corner at 2nd avenue and BAM there was the chinese restaurant, i felt my stride slipping and my resolve sliding... my arms stopped pumping all on their own and I was unable to hear the traffic (which is loud and vexatious to the spirit) anyway, I breathed deeply thought about it and said MONDAY.......... My boss is out and i can sit in my office and enjoy it..

So I didnt have it and on Monday I will tell you all if it was worth the wait - but in the meantime .. emoticon emoticon ME... and thanks to the Spark and my emoticon's I passed on a temporary fix and had a great salad that was healthy and filling... so bring it on Monday

    ooohhhh...yes. The dreaded CHOCOLATE times..Easter..halloween...valentin
es day..
Any reason for the school system to send home chocolate and candies to the house where I must of course hide them from the kids! I am the only one who knows the hidden place....hehehehe
Just remember chocolate as every food is ok in moderation and chocolate in particular carries those little goodies that are helpful to the heart-in moderation.
Eat what you will, chuck the rest,because out of sight is out of mind, and move on.
.....Just because one plate got broke don't mean you gonna drag the rest out the kitchen cabibet and throw them on the floor...

    Not knowing what the calorie and fat content are, I'd still say maybe allow yourself a couple. You can plan for having these kinds of things -- the Spark Plan usually allows for 200-250 snack calories a day. You'll feel better in the long run that you controlled it, you have the power! emoticon

    As a fellow chocolate lover...Easter is going to be as hard to resist candy-wise, as it was during Valentine's Day & Christmas. The good news is that after that, we're pretty much holiday-free for awhile.

Famous Dave's

Monday, March 08, 2010

Infamous Dave's is more like it.. I did well at the restaurant Saturday. I actually divided my food in half - I dranked 2 tall cups of water w/lemon and ordered the stringbeans - removed the bacon bits, then the dry ribs and roasted chicken. I was so full after all the water that I only ate the veggies and 1 rib and a half of cornbread. Is it true that 0ne cornbread muffin has 600 calories!!!!!!!!!!! Anyway I left feeling very good. The problem occurred on Sunday I had a piece of chicken by tossing it in a salad for lunch - not so bad, but then for dinner I had about 3 ribs, my half of cornbread and my husband 1/2 of cornbread then the other half of chicken. I also had the mashed sweet potatoes, those can't be additive free.

Upon completion I felt heavy, yucky and full of meat.... Why do I have to do a combo, isnt one meat enough? Well another lesson learned. emoticon very much INFAMOUS DAVE. I now know that you are not my friend.

  well after hearing about the 600 calories, I guess this will have to go. This restaurant is one of favorites, so guess it is best to eat only half of food and save it for dinner, or another meal. emoticon emoticon
