Day off

Yesterday I felt incredibly sick of watching my food, counting my points and all the rest of the palaver.

So I gave myself an evening off and Mark and I went out for dinner.

Whitebait entrees of course - fritter for him, flash fried for me.

I then had a rib-eye steak. It came with an ENORMOUS serving of fries, of which I ate less than a dozen. The rest of the plate was occupied by a piece of beef the size of Jerry Collins' bicep. I managed to eat less than half.

We then shared a platter of scrumptious petit fours, of which not a skerrick was left on the plate.

Felt good. No trouble being back on track today.

Jerry Collins is the All Blacks' blindside flanker. The man is pure muscle and the toughest man in world rugby. Bar none.

Good on you for giving yourself a night off Sue. We all need a treat, and no surprise that you felt great today, because you don't feel deprived, so your willpower will be stronger.

Had to laugh at your description of the portion of meat. Forgive my ignorance of not knowing who Jerry Collins is (triathlon man perhaps?!) but the joke wasn't lost on me.

Hope you have an excellent week :)

Sounds like a great night out. I love petit fours :)

Thats awesome Sue that you can give yourself a day off. I have had days like that where the points and counting can get a little frustrating. You've come so far with the weight loss, you deserve it! :)

It is good just to chill out sometimes and forget about points. Great to have a nice meal and enjoy yourself.

Hope the steak wasn't as tough as Jerry sounds though!

Yum that steak sounds devine. And good on you for having a day off and then getting back on track - doesn't sound like you really would have gone 'over points' or anything way, at least not by much. :o)

You had a night off but you still made mostly healthy choices and that's the great thing i'm starting to learn about WW, it's not all lettuce and water!!
Glad to hear you had such a lovely night, you deserve it!

Great night off Sue. We do need to still be able to enjoy ourselves and you did well. No guilt just back on track the next morning. That is the way to do this for a lifetime.
