Our church had a "Dessert Celebration" today!

Sunday, February 10, 2013

A Thank-You celebration took place this afternoon at our church for the volunteers and those who perform ministries. It was called "The Dessert Celebration" and I didn't really want to go!!! But, my hubby wanted to go and we did take a grandchild with us.

We walked in the door, and oh, my! The first thing was the sundae bar...every kind of ice cream and everything you can think of for toppings was there. Yeah, I love ice cream and slid right past it without a 2nd look.

Then came the fountains: Some kind of white liquid fountain (???) and a chocolate fountain...lots of fruits out plus things like cake pieces and marshmallows (I LOVE marshmallows). I had a couple of strawberries and some raspberries.

Then came the tables full of cupcakes, cakes, pies, candies, etc. I took two tiny plain cheesecake bites, one chocolate cupcake with thin icing (it was good!) and finally one tiny brownie bite.

Not good, but I used this as my "lunch"...520 calories, 24 gms fat, 63 carbs. BUT I planned on this and enjoyed it immensely, and was satisfied until dinner.

Good deal...I stayed within my food tracking ranges...all of them...and I'm feeling good! I would not eat like this every day...or even often....but it was fun, and I am not a bit tempted to go off my food plan. I'm a happy camper tonight.

    You should be really proud of yourself...for me, that would have been the ultimate test of willpower.

    I'm very impressed. That would have been a hard gauntlet for me to walk.

    sometime at events like that we cab focus more on the fellowship and the visiting instead of the overeating. When you talk you can't eat. and when listening, i use the excuse of not taking big bites so i can respond or not make a mess on my shirt.
