Day 143

I did a lot of walking today outside of the gym, so when I missed the gym due to an appointment my mother "needed" to keep I wasn't so upset. I have plans to go with her tomorrow. We did have dinner out though, but I was good. I ordered a plain salad as a starter so that when my meal came I would be okay with putting half of it aside to take home, and I did it! I am not finishing up my points for the day with some cereal which is filling and with a little Splenda is also kinda sweet which is exactly what I needed. I ran a lot of errands today and so was out of the house pretty much constantly until almost 11pm. Thus, the bulk of my meals for the day were outside of the house. Still, I think I did well. I'm almost certainly overestimating the points for the appetizer pieces I had, but better safe than sorry. The salmon might also be off because the nutrition info on the site included the sides, one of which is rice that I didn't eat. I ate all of the steamed veggies though!

Today:
1 baked potato w/cheese: 7
1/2 small chili: 2
1 small salad (literally lettuce, tomato and cucumber chunks) w/ a serving of low fat ranch: 2
appetizer pieces:
1 & 2/3s pieces of sw egg rolls: 8
1 1/2 pieces boneless buffalo wings: 4
3 tortilla chips, w/ 2 tbsp dip: 4
1/2 of salmon served: 5
4oz spaghetti: 4
1/2 cup sauce w/meat: 3
1 cup bran flakes: 2
1/2 cup skim milk: 1
42/43

5 servings of veggies today. Not bad for almost all non home made. Thank GOODNESS I am going to get groceries on Sunday.

That was a smart move, having the salad fill you up, so you could eat the rest of the dinner responsibly. And 5 veggie servings! That's 3 more than I got in today. :-O
