Hola Chica Choos! (one of my friends used to call me chica choo & I loved that name!
So last night was the big party for work and I am happy ot report that I did pretty well. There were alot of great food choices and I feel like I did well in making good selections. There was a wonderful salad, (w/ ranch dressing!! yay!) Steamed veggies (cauliflower, broccoli, carrots, zucchini) salmon, roast beef, a chicken breast with a raspberry sauce on it that was delicious, fresh fruit, rolls & butter & some of the most delicious looking desserts ever!!! I had a little something before going because I had eaten at 11:30 am & was pretty much starving when I got home from work. At the party, I had a yummy tossed salad, 1/2 of the raspberry chicken breast (hubby ate the other half) one small slice of roast beef, and about 2 bites of the salmon (that was actually really really good!) I had a few pcs of fresh fruit, some of the steamed veggies (about 1/2 cup) I skipped the roll & butter but I did get a slice of Italian creme cake. I had intentions of eating only 1/2 of it but OMG, it was spectacular and its something I rarely ever get so I ate every last bite! :) It was worth it! I was waiting all week to go to this dinner & I feel like I did really well passing up all the other temptations & catered lunches at work so I don't feel bad about it at all! I told myself at the beginning of the week that if I didn't want to weigh in this week, I didn't have to. I gave myself permission to enjoy myself,however, I found myself not wanting to partake in all of that food. It just wasn't worth it to me. Instead, I weighed in today as normal and I actually lost .6#. I was thrilled and I will take it! Getting through this week was challenging at times, but I prevailed & I wish I could put into word how great I feel about myself. I AM stronger than I ever thought I was and I have proven to myself this year that will determination & "Want"power, anything is possible! I hope I don't come off as bragging....not intended to come off that way. It is just such a victory for me and I wanted to share it with you all because I know you know where I am coming from. I seem to be stuck in the 170s again! Just looked back at my weight tracker with WW & I am teetering between 176-178. (sigh) Its frustrating but at least Im not gaining.
So another party tonite but I'm not worried about it in the least. I know I can keep it under control. So that's my thoughts of the day. I hope you are all doing well and are having a great weekend!
((HUGS)) to all of my Chicas!
