Day 48. Worst day of a good week.

I can't get discouraged that I ate so much junk today.  In my life, there will be birthday party days when I just want to enjoy the food.  Thanks to wiser choices the rest of the week, I had plenty of flex points left to allow me to just enjoy today's buffet without ruining my week.  I still have 2 flex pts left for 1 day/tomorrow.  I can handle that.  Sure, I regret having a piece of cake (which wasn't very good anyway), but honestly - I don't regret the penne ala vodka.  That was worth saving up flex pts all week for, and I savored every bite.  I skipped the wine and stuck with water.  I brought my hummus and whole wheat pita chips to munch on so I could more easily resist the cheese and cracker table.  (Not a single cracker/cheese!)  But that cake.  >sigh<  how do you not have a piece of a 4 yr old's pink iced chocolate cake when your own daughter decorated it and you help her cut it to distribute to all the guests?

So it's another night of Insanity workout tonight.

Someone at the party asked me if I'd lost weight.  :)

Today I ate 42 pts
Exercise:  Insanity Pure Cardio & Cardio Abs (-5pts)
TOTAL: 37 pts   (w/ 15 flex pts)

  1. You know, I never thought about it but I like the idea of having leftover "points" at the end of the week. I do the calorie-counting thing but it can totally apply to that.

    Thanks for the tip... it will probably keep me more accountable during the rest of week if I know I can splurge a little one day.
