Today is Good Friday. The girls were off school and they've been begging to go to Golden Corral for a month now but I'm a cheapskate so I wanted to wait until I could get the Lunch buffet and not the dinner. So the three of us went for lunch and I had pretty darn great self control. I started with a green salad with some grilled chicken and ham pieces. I got a small spoonful of fried rice, a couple of small pieces of asian chicken, a small spoonful of mashed potatoes, one small piece of bbq chicken and some pieces of melon. And I ate one roll. So compared to previous trips to Golden Corral I rocked my self control. As I watched others walk by with plates piled 2 or 3 layers high with fried chicken and stuffing and pork steak, etc...I felt at peace with myself and my choices.
And for dessert (and I wasn't about to NOT have dessert)..I passed by all the cobblers and german chocolate cake (yum) and black forest cake, and fudge, etc, etc...I instead took one small scoop of banana pudding, one small piece (like a 2 inch by 2inc) of banana bread and then got some vanilla soft serve ice cream. That, my friends, is a huge victory. To not choose chocolate!
One thing I did notice was that when I came home I was incredible munchy. I don't know if that relates to having a bit higher sugar intake than I have had in the past month or not. I ate 2 bananas but then I went to the gym and then had an apple for supper.
Couch to 5 K Week 1 Day 2 was a success. A bit harder. I think I need to do it in the morning early afternoon and not at 4:00. I was tired.
