So today's SC challenge for me put a smile on my face. The challenge was to eat at the high end of my calorie range. I felt like I got a free hall pass. LOL I usually eat at the low to mid range with an occasional high range. Well today I was "told" to eat at that higher range. This fit in perfect for the day. We were going out to Applebee's for a late lunch (DH choice) and I pre decided to have a Bourbon Street steak (something I remember eating a lot). So I did order the steak with a salad. Well after eating 1/2 of the steak and 1/2 of the salad I just couldn't eat another bite. Took the rest home for dinner. We also stopped for dessert. Well after eating 1/2 my dessert.....I was done. So now the dilemma. I have 1/2 steak, 1/2 salad and 1/2 dessert to finish tonight and still be in my higher calorie range....I managed to eat the salad; passed on the steak and tossed the dessert. My eating habits have changed so much (for the better) that my body just said "NO MORE". I'm still smiling, but have that "Thanksgiving Day" after dinner too full feeling. Thank goodness the night is almost over and the challenge has been met......with some leftovers for tomorrows lunch. Yum.
Funny how I feel guilty when I get to that high calorie range or go over. And yet when I was "given permission" to do it I just got "stuffed". I guess the real trick here is to stick with the calorie range that works for me. Or is it?
