..friday nite I was looking forward to having dinner out with hubby ...had planned my food and knew what would work for dinner --roasted beet salad --hold the candied walnuts & cheese --dressing on the side --along with 4 cocktail shrimp and 1 glass of chardonnay ---I had made it through a very long week of work with 2 days in professional development & two days commuting to a conference & eating on the fly--I planned and made good choice which kept me on track --even when I was surrounded by temptation & plenty of co-workers who are not in the same mindset -- Friday dinner didnt work out so I was a little bummed, but did not want to see my efforts at staying on track be for nothing so I made a peanutbuter sandwich on whole grain bread & a glass of milk --then settled in for a long sleep & a busy saturday.

Saturday I had planned a 5K run ( 1st mile was 8 min - woohoo) --finished the run averaging 10 min miles which is a great improvement from my last timed run --still had to work at making good choices & opted to cook at home & fill up on lots of fresh veggies --had a great time preparing a special meal for DH & DD & enjoyed some quiet time

Today we had breakfast at home --egg white & avocado on arnold multigrain (thanks for the idea au bon pain) --grabbed an apple and cheesestick on the way to the Providence Bruins game ( they won - great game) & am proud ( & a bit amazed) that I was able to make good food choices because there were many temptations -- tortilla chips -- french fries -- yikes --did every plate really have to call my name -- I stuck with a large caesar salad ( dressing on the side ) & grilled shrimp with one glass of wine & 3 glasses of water --saved some calories for a lite beer at the game & enjoyed a little breakfast for dinner ( mini-wheats with blueberries & milk)

Yes...I stuck to my guns & kept my goal in mind but let me tell you it still felt like work
some days its easy but his weekend it was all uphill --good to know I can climb but I am hoping there is a day when I wont feel like every food choice has such an impact --any words of guidance from the sparkpeople world ??? emoticon
