I surprised myself

Thursday, October 22, 2009

DH and I went out to dinner last night, to celebrate the day before payday, to celebrate my normal ultrasound, to celebrate life and all. And neither of us wanted to cook.

I had sesame seed crusted salmon (about 6 oz) with tropical fruit chutney (no mango, I checked); steamed vegs; rice pilaf (which I didn't finish). We shared a slice of chocolate mousse pie (1/12 of the whole, so 75% of the listing in SP).

Now, that sounds like a lot of food. And decadent. Not dieting. Keep in mind that breakfast was a slice of banana bread and two tea lattes with sugar-free vanilla from the coffee cart. Lunch was turkey on whole wheat pita and baby carrots. Snack was a small apple and one string cheese.

I came in at a whopping 1380 calories. I was shocked. I figured the day would be at least 1550, if not more. I felt like I ate three good meals. I was never hungry.

Wow. The power of smart choices! It really paid off!

    you lost me after sesame crusted salmon and chocolate mousse pie...


    Seriously though, good job on your tracking. It takes portion control to stay at 1380 when you eating out AND having dessert!
