Oooohhhh..... the tough choices we make in a day. I've got some major temptations over the next 3 days and I have to pick and choose what I do with them. We have this thing at work that involves a partnership with Starbucks - UNLIMITED FREE hot chocolate at lunchtime from today through Friday. And since it is an important relationship, I really do need to set a good example and support it, right??? Um, yeah, I had some hot choc with whipped cream today. Fabulous. But, then, on the other hand - I did my pre-meal trick and ate at my desk before going to a friends' place where they ordered pizza. I didn't have a single slice! So, I'm picking my battles.
I do have 2 belated birthday events coming up - a steak dinner tomorrow night and The Melting Pot on Monay. As far as I'm concerned, those still fall under the "birthday freebie" clause. Cuz, really, what's the point of trying to be good for those two meals? I'll get more enjoyment out of them than I will out of diet food for weeks. So I'll savor it!
I did go for a cheaper lunch option today. Thank goodness for corner delis!
