Tooting My Horn (Again!)

I didn't know what else to call this post, so I thought this title fits since I am so gosh darn proud of myself right now.

In honor of "Administrative Professionals Week," my office hosted lunch for all of the support staff which includes yours truly. They ordered in Italian entrees from Valentino's and then designated others to bring side items, desserts, etc.

Surprisingly, there were some healthy options, which isn't always the case.

This is what I ate:

1 piece of pepperoni pizza (a small corner piece...Val's cuts their circular pizzas into square pieces)
3 baby carrots
1 raddish
2 pieces of celery
4 large strawberries
Lots of fresh blueberries....about 1/2 cup

Now here's a list of stuff I passed up: sugar cookies, chocolate chip cookies, chocolate cake w/whip cream & cherry topping, cheesecake, cream cheese fruit pizza, pecan pie, chocolate cupcakes, lasagna, mostacolli, macaroni salad and french bread!

Other than the piece of pizza, everything I ate was 0 point items! Okay, technically the blueberries are .5 according to the tracker but I'm counting them as 0 since I've never tracked 1/2 points. Unfortunately, Val's doesn't list their NI online, so I'm going to count it as 6 since that's what most places are, even though it was definitely not the size of a full slice. It was serioulsy only 4 bites, not including the crust. I was going to skip the crust, but theirs is really good so I went for it.

So you see, I'm tooting my horn because I could've been soooo bad today but I wasn't. Go me! (toot-toot...)

Well done!!!! :-)

When I walked into the teacher's lounge today, they had muffins. Big, moist, blueberry ones. I looked at them, thought of what I wanted to acheive this week and passed right by them.

Actually made me feel pretty good. Food wasn't ruling my life, I was in control !! :-)
