I was typing up a few notes in my nutrition tracker about how hanging out with some friends and having a potluck dinner went. I went over my recommended calories and fat for today, but not by much (if my estimates are accurate, and it's hard to know exactly, but I think I estimated reasonably well).
I thought I'd share my "pluses" and "minuses" of the day here, even though they are still in note form.
+ 1 hour and 20 minute walk with friends
+ walk was in park, nice outside time
+ small portion frozen yogurt, my only toppings were natural unsweetened fruit
+ prepared healthy and balanced food to bring to potluck (whole wheat pasta, light on the dressing, with veggies)
+ drank only tea and water
- too many snacks and nibbles while waiting for dinner
- too many dessert nibbles at end of the night
- oddly scheduled breakfast/lunch led to overeating at dinner
Note: hard to know how host's main dish was prepared. It definitely had some fatty ingredients, but since I had filled up on healthy veggies and pasta, I ate very little of those.
All in all, a good day spent with good friends. Bringing a healthy entree was definitely a good move for me.
