I’m trying to play ‘catch up’ with these daily blog posts. I had the shake in the morning. Then provided a consulting session from 10am-12pm, so I didn’t have time to acknowledge my 10am hunger pangs.
It was Wendy’s for lunch with The Colleague. I didn’t go full healthy and get a salad, although they did look OK. I wanted meat! So, I got a junior bacon cheeseburger, a small chili, and water. Not the best choice, but definitely could have much worse on the calories, fat, sodium, front. After finishing everything, I was craving their delicious sea salted fries. I was really on the fence, but held strong and booted it outta there. I knew a huge dinner awaited me.
Had a training session from 1:30pm-3:30pm, so again, no time to go get my typical Snickers or bag of chips for my afternoon munchie. I did have 2 boxes of Halloween size Smarties. Lesser of other evil choices.
Finally end of the workday and I’m waiting at my parents before we all head out for a celebratory birthday dinner for Franklin. But, since we are waiting for a couple of hours, I munch on Miss Vicki’s Original chips and those pancake dots that you can get at P-Mall. I’m hungry! and dinner isn’t until 7pm. Next thing I know I eat ALL of the pancake things. I combined one dot with one chip and I was in sweet and salty heaven. It was also soft and crunch too!
We finally head out to dinner and it was a smorgasbord. Corn egg-drop soup, lobster, Peking duck, lettuce cups with the chopped duck meat, deep-fried squid, Guy-Lan (Chinese broccoli) with sliced beef, this tender steak on a hot plate, roast chicken, and rice. I’m guess I am lucky that Lucas wanted to walk over to the fish tanks all the time. Help me cut back a little. But, then we all started taking turns walking him back there. I’m sure I made up for my Lucas time and chowed on more than I should have.
Ah well. It was to celebrate another birth year of my husbands. Definitely worth the cheat day.
