Had a great day but did not track food

Friday, April 27, 2012

DD and I went outlet shopping today. The main goal was to get me a new dress. This was to be a reward for making my April goal. Well I will not make my April goal but I do need and want a new dress. I am looking forward to a year full of social activities. I have two nieces and one nephew who are getting married in the next year. The family is throwing an engagement party for them in early June. I wanted something that would fit for that party. I ended up buying 2 dresses, one a bit fancy for one of the weddings and one a bit more casual that I can wear this summer. I also got a 2nd pair of dressy pants. I wanted some denim shorts but did not find any.
What I did find was a very deep pan that I can use for lasagne. I have been looking for one for a long time. I also got a large wooden board I can use to roll out my pizza dough. My stone counters cool off my pizza dough. I wanted a wooden board because it would keep the dough warm. DD found a lot of things to outfit her BF new apartment. She also got 2 new dresses. I got a gift for my MIL for Mother's day. I don't go shopping often but about once a year I like to visit outlets. This was this year's trip.
That was the fun part. Now the not so fun part. We ate in the food court for lunch. I chose a slice of broccoli and spinach stuffed pizza. It seemed to be a healthy choice. It was served with a side and I chose the sauteed veggies. That was a bowl of carrots, zucchini, broccoli, and yellow squash. I had a bottle of water for my beverage. Well googling the pizza when I cam home and the calories were an astronomical 840 calories. The filling was veggie with a little cheese, no meat. The crust was thin. I would never have guessed it had that many calories. Dinner was also eaten out. We went to a Thai restaurant and I ordered a pork and eggplant dish cooked in a green curry. Again I have no idea how many calories. So today I am not tracking since I can't do it with any accuracy. I do feel I ate healthy food but I suspect my calories are off the charts. Well today is over and tomorrow is a new day.

    Sounds like you had a real good time. Bet you did plenty of walking in the malls. You will have to take some pics of your new dresses. You might not have stayed within your target range for food, but you were completely aware of what you were eating and that is what healthy people do, so congrats for that. That in itself is success.
Glad you were able to get out in your yard today. I know how much you enjoy that.

    You did the best you could. All things considered, it sounds like your choices were the best you could do. I'm sure there were plenty of far worse things you could have eaten!

    I am glad that you had fun on your shopping trip with your daugther and it sounds like you were both very successful in finding things you needed. I agree with you about the foods, it sounds like you made healthy choices even if your calories are over. You should post pictures of the dresses when you wear them!

    Sounds like a fun day. Consider it a reward for all the hard & heavy work you have been doing of late. As for your food choices, definitely not as bad as it could have been. If you eat a little lite tomorrow, I think all things will even out. And don't beat yourself up if the scale goes up. That's the salt talking. Food courts are notorious for going overboard in that regard. No true reflection on the calories consumed. That too will work it's self out.

    Oh it sounds like you had such a marvelous time! You will have to take pictures of you in your new fancy dress! And some days it is just impossible to track calories. Some days we will go over. It is what we do the rest of the time that makes the difference!
