Compelled, Convicted, and Committed
I am COMPELLED to blog today on how the
went yesterday. My portions were ok, in fact I didn’t even eat
that much, which CONVICTED me to see how “worldly”
food can be so very dangerous when not kept in moderation!!! I actually I went way over my calories for the day but by being COMMITTED I also went way over my fitness activity for the day as well - So I feel I off set the two, thus do not feel guilty and had a great day!
always have to start with appetizers and I did try to stay out of the kitchen where they were but - blame it on
my sister-in-law (
right) who makes the most wonderful Guacamole Taco Platter served with Tostitos - ggggrrrr and I had 2 helpings. This was about 1 cup + 4 oz of chips. The chips alone amounted to 4 servings. Amazing how great tasting, not healthy foods, pack such a punch
of calories in such small portions…what’s with that hu?? LOL But I did only had one Mike’s Hard Lemonade., usually I have a few. This was 220 useless calories alone! OUCH!!!
Since I don’t often get pizza I splurged on 3 pieces of “garbage” pizza, but stuck with only 3 pieces. Since I had no clue as to the actually calories on the pizza I just picked the best choice I found on SP and picked conservable higher. They had beef and sausages for sandwiches which I totally skipped both and went with the Chopped Salad that was from a local establishment so I was able to get calorie count on that, but cut way back on the dressings - check!
Then came the treats - OUCH! And of course I had to sit in front of the large platter of bakery cookies - oooohhh how I love buttery bakery cookies and of course never have them either! So had 3 - yep 3 and they were delicious! Then I was going to pass on B-day cake but…again hardly ever so - but I did have a smaller than usual piece and it was NOT AN END PIECE. You know the one,
with frosting on more the 2 sides -
All in all I consumed more calories on Party day than I did on
- can you believe that! But then again I did come home to 6" of fluffy SNOW that had to be shovel from my overly large driveway… and I couldn't get the snow blower to work! gggrrrrrr God is amazing isn't HE!!!
All-in-all it was a good day
, enjoyed with family
and the 2 year old B-day girl was the hit of the
