I had kind of a text message war last night. It went a little like this.
Friend: I’m bringing Chinese leftovers for lunch for us tomorrow.
Me: Ummmm… no. I’m not eating Chinese.
Friend: Yes, you are.
Me: Nooo… I’m on weight watchers. I want to do it right this week.
Friend: Your eating Chinese.
Me: No, I already have my points planned out for the day.
Friend: It’s a holiday.
I debated all night… was I going to eat the Chinese or wasn’t I.
I felt like I was letting my friend down by not eating with her.
I felt like I was being that friend that I hated that would go out to eat with me, and not eat because she was on a diet.
I felt like I wanted the Chinese.
Does anyone else think like this? Do they battle within their selves over whether to eat something or not? I knew I was being silly. I knew it didn’t really matter.
This morning I woke up and had
Wouldn’t you know the day I decided to really get serious was the day that it was candy land at work… peanut M&M’s, Snow caps, cookies… they were surrounding me. They were calling my name. I resisted and ate my snack.
The white chocolate chips satisfied my sweet tooth for the time being.
And then the Chinese debate started again.
Friend: Your going to eat Chinese.
Me: No, I’m going to eat my salad.
She heated the Chinese up and the smell wafted through the air. I wanted to tell her to make me a plate. I didn’t want her to think that I was passing up the Chinese only to fail another day. Decisions, decisions. Would one day really hurt me?
I ended up having
I was so glad I did. My salad was fabulous. I love the dressing, and I love blue cheese. And I knew that if I had the chinese I would have felt like I had let myself down.
Snacks consisted of
I also gave into two small cookies that had been calling my name all day. I did log them onto my weight watcher tracker.
Dinner was leftovers Honey Dijon Chicken
And for dessert I jumped on the banana soft serve bandwagon. How can I pass it up when the banana is 0 points.
Oh my goodness this was sooo good. I’m so glad I tried it tonight. It was the perfect ending to a pretty good day of eats.
I also want to thank everyone for their comments yesterday. It was a really hard post to publish yesterday. I mean this is a secret I’ve had bottled up for so long and even my closest friends who I tell everything to doesn’t know. So I was finally able to get that off my chest. Thanks for being there and thanks for listening 🙂
