You can eat friend chicken and stay on track!

Saturday, April 16, 2011

Sorry, as I was commenting on one dear Friends page, I realized how good I have gotten at cooking "bad" and still keeping myself on track. Don't get on to me... I don't cook "bad" very often anymore.
BUT I have learned how to serve up fried chicken and all the fixins' without blowing my plan. Yes, I'll splurge and have a piece of fried chicken, but then I'll eat a salad and bread instead of heavier potatoes and gravy.
So apparently you can teach an old dog new tricks because if I can learn to pass up the mac-n- cheese ANYBODY can do it.
And cookies and snacks- Please, I crave grapes and oranges now. When I need unsweet snacks, walnuts and low fat cheddar slices have been working wonderful for me.
I hope everybody's having a great weekend. Lots of sunshine around here.

    That gives me hope, I love chocolate. Right now I have decided to stay away from it other than my lowfat chocolate yogurt. I like the fact that at some point I may have the control to add it back in.

    Yes, you can eat fried chicken and stay on track. I really haven't changed what I eat, I just track it and keep the amounts within my diet range. I even manage to work in a chocolate chip cookie every so often. emoticon

    Isn't that awesome? It's really about balance and portion control...just making good choices. Way to go!
