I met my dad for lunch at a place we had never been. I had no idea what the menu included. The options were few. I was hungry. I ordered 1/2 turkey sandwich on wheat, a cup of Roasted Red Pepper Bisque and a nonfat latte. The Bisque was wear it all went sour. No, the soup wasn’t sour, but I should have thought about this. Bisque means cream. It was good and I ate it all. After I ate my sandwich, I realized I would have probably been fine with just the soup.
When I got home, I looked up the nutritional info. Yip, shoulda just had one or the other.
Dinner? I hadn’t planned lunch OR dinner! I wasn’t cooking due to leftovers that needed to be eaten, but then I ended up eating a Protein bar that I thought was 5 PPV. I later realized it was 7 PPV.
Then, I over indulged on a banana, fresh pineapple and fresh blueberries, trying to fill up on zero point foods. A cucumber just didn’t sound good.
I stayed within my 30 points, I drank 10 glasses of water, I walked 2.5 miles (0.5 mile more than I have been), but I feel like I ate all the wrong things.
Not a big deal really, but it did make me realize that planning what I will eat for the entire day, the first thing in the morning, seemed to be working for me!
PLAN, PLAN, PLAN………
