This has been an amazing day with choices...food choices that is! Again it is ball season and my son plays travel ball, so I never know about meals, games, etc. So today we had just enough time to grab a quick bite between games and we chose Dairy Queen. I selected a kids meal with a cheeseburger and a banana instead of fries. Now, I love ice cream, but today instead of eating my free kids cone, I gave the coupon to my oldest (who no longer eats a kids meal) and saved myself 180 calories. Since I always ask for a nutritional guide now, I also helped my middle son realize the chicken basket he wanted had 1370 calories or he could get the kids meal with only 420 calories! WOW... eating out can get you!!
Then I got home and my sis in law was having some of us over for a campfire and I chose to make my own salad with leftover grilled chicken instead of a hot dog. I actually had people looking at my salad and saying, "wow, that looks really good". It was yummy, filling and truly much better than a hot dog I would've eaten in 5 bites. PLUS, I had enough calories left that I had a square s'more. This was the first chocolate I had had in awhile and it was GOOD!
I am proud of the choices I made today. These choices will enable me to reach my goals and be successful with my mini goals this month! I am striving to lose 8 more pounds this month which would make my total loss 34 pounds. I am striving to also exercise everyday in the month of April. I also want to continue making good choices at the ballgames. The small changes and choices I make today will lead to big successes in the future!!
