Hey everyone, just got home from the BBQ and getting ready for bed! My apple and peanut butter snack did wonders of holding me over for about 3 hours or so until we got to the party. That’s a powerful snack! I ate a burger off the grill for dinner…it was small and I’m guessing was probably about 5 ounces. It was fine– I put lots of dijon mustard and ketchup on it (there was no cheese)! I think my body is just so used to eating really “good for you” foods though that a burger really just isn’t as satisfying to me as is roasted vegetables, fish and whole grains. I mean, it tasted good and all….but it’s not my favorite thing to eat— I just don’t feel that great after eating one. On the side there were lima beans that had been simmering with a ham hock all day and were soooo good as well as a fresh spinach salad that I tried to load up on to get my greens in! Overall, it wasn’t that unhealthy of a dinner…small burger, yes lots of saturated fat, but if you only have one on occasion it’s fine. I drank about 4 ounces of wine and then just drank ice water for the rest of the night. I’m going to an early morning yoga class with my mom tomorrow and want to feel my best!
And…of course there were desserts…my weak spot! One of the girls had made a homemade key lime pie so I had to try a small piece–it probably was about a four inch slice, quite small! Then…I tasted Ryan’s ice cream snicker’s cake and got a tiny sliver of that too (not pictured)! See, once I start I just can’t stop!!!! It’s okay though; I don’t feel stuffed at all and this is not an every night affair. Plus, it could have been much much worse if I would have kept drinking! Most everyone else was drinking beer all night but I passed because I hate beer and I knew one glass of wine was enough for me!
