Splurge-o-Rama

Well, tonight I had my first big unplanned splurge. I was doing pretty well all day, even though I was eating slightly bigger meals for breakfast and lunch than I had been. By the time I left work, I only had 5 points left for dinner.

Unlike normal, I had no idea what I was going to be eating. I went to a meeting tonight that included dinner and we weren't told beforehand what the food options would be. It turned out to be a gorgeous spread of food from the Lebanese Taverna. And it smelled great. And I was hungry. So I made myself a big plate of it and had 2 small cups of white wine. Hey, it was a 3 hour meeting! I needed sustenance!

When I got home, though, I was really hungry again. So I broke out a package of the Smart Pop 94% fat-free popcorn. It's worth it to not go to sleep hungry....

Thank goodness for Flex Points. I used 10 of them tonight. Tomorrow's another day!

I wish my work had Lebanese Taverna at our meetings... lucky!

I think I was hormonal last night as I was eating everything I could find that had 1) cheese in it, 2) chocolate in it or 3) ice cream in it. I really couldn't stop, so I went to bed.

Oops.

My work feeds deli sandwiches to $5k + donors! HA! Take that.

As I sit here at my desk, pants getting tighter by the minute, I think it might be time to step my diet into gear.

Lady B: Yeah, it was delicious! But my work has really fatty stuff like quiche at our meetings, so I'll be in trouble at the next one.

Scotte: I hope you're getting my hormonal cravings! Once those hit, I better run for the hills!

Velvet: I'll gladly cheer you on!
