7/18/19 "Victory Dance"

Thursday, July 18, 2019

Last night was a rough one for me. I was just in a funk. I wanted pasta, and bread, and just all the stuff that isn't really all that good for me. I asked my husband what he wanted for dinner and he said "Well you haven't made your meatballs in a while." So I said you know what giving in just a little this time can't be to bad. I made meatballs and boy were those bad boys good! With angel hair pasta and bread sticks with a side salad.

I told myself ok I'm going to have a pretty decent size salad and then I won't be all that hungry for all the bad stuff that isn't so good for me. I ate my over large salad, and then had 2 meatballs because well you know protein (LoL) I had to try to tell myself I was still being good and had the smallest bowl of pasta and I was happy. Well then I just went into auto pilot, I made bread sticks. They come in a box of 6 and I swear taste exactly like olive gardens bread sticks which I love. I made all 6 so my husband could take left overs to work today and well one bread stick turned into two, then two turned into three then when I looked at the bread bowl they were all gone! I said "Wow Tom you must of been starving" he said "Honey don't you know you ate 3 bread sticks, I ate 3 bread sticks that equals 6"

I felt so defeated. So that's when the victory dance comes in. I plugged in all my food into the website this morning and then I realized I was still in range of where I am suppose to be. So here I am at work, doing a little victory dance because not only am I in range I thought ahead of time and ate a big salad with little pasta instead of the way I use to be. A little salad with a pot full of pasta.

    Give yourself a pat on the back! That is wonderful to still be in your range. To have such a big salad and not as much pasta is a super win!
    Keep up the good work.
