Here I go again...

… off to my 2nd
dinner. Last Thursday, my daughter’s college had a big bash and I did OK. I was a bit deflated upon coming home and calculating up what I had consumed. Not know how things were made I just used my best guess and entered foods listed on SP and came up with a total of 1799 calories - OUCH! That’s more than I am to consume in a WHOLE DAY!!!
But…then I pondered this and actually began to pat myself on the back. This because going into this dinner being on SP had at least made me AWARE and conscience of what I was putting on my plate and for that I thank SP!! Knowing I would have to record this on my nutrition tracker did help keep me accountable! Even though I consumed 1800 calories - had I not been here I am sure it would have been more near 4000 with out batting an eye!!
Now this afternoon as I mentioned earlier, I will be attending my 2nd
dinner, this time at my son’s fraternity. Have gone the last two years and they provide a really nice dinner. One thing that is different with this one is…at my daughter’s it was buffet style, which we all know can be dangerous. Where today the boys actually serve restaurant style - nice…and their portions are not as big as restaurant style either…actual portions! So that will definitely help! Although you can always ask for more…but I WILL NOT!
Only real problem is when they open up the TREAT table - look out! As parents we are all asked to bring some sort of desert. So what I am bringing you may ask - MINI ECLAIRS dessert pastries. Although I do like these, they are not my favorite but I am sure there will be plenty of things I do or would like to gobble down! I will try…no correction I WILL BE MINDFUL OF WHAT I CONSUME!!!
So wish me luck, in fact about 5:30pm Chicago time - offer up a pray for me to have SELF-CONTROL over the treat table. Maybe I shouldn’t even go up - ya think?
