Challenge day #3

Can I just start off by saying, I kicked @$$ today?!?!?! It was Megan’s 3rd birthday, so that meant dinner, cake & ice cream. And you won’t BELIEVE how well I managed it all I went to work today, got home and got the house cleaned before everyone got here at 6:00 p.m. I got the cake frosted (baked it last night) and decorated, present wrapped and everyone showed up. I made shredded BBQ beef (not too bad on points and soooo yummy!!!) for sandwiches (I got 1 pt. hamburger buns) and chips is what was for dinner. I measured out my 1/4 cup of BBQ beef which equaled about 2 oz of meat (with the BBQ sauce on it, which is made with just ketchup and diet cola, no points for the BBQ sauce at all) and had that on my 1 pt. bun and had a serving of Baked Lays. We opened presents and sang happy birthday and in came the cake and ice cream. I got it all served up, didn’t even think, more just habit and I served enough for everyone, including myself. I told myself ‘oh well, one day won’t matter..I have enough points to cover it’…and dang if I didn’t sit down with that (small, but still) piece of cake with a scoop of REGULAR ice cream even. DUDE. Where was my head?!?!?! I swear, I took 2 small bites of cake and 2 small bites of ice cream, and I gave my plate to Abbie. I couldn’t have done more than 1 point in the amount I ate, but I literally did NOT want it anymore!!! That was the BEST feeling EVER!!! I so didn’t eat it!!! I had a taste and obviously was satisfied with what I had tried and consciously, yes CONSCIOUSLY, chose to NOT eat the sucker!!! GO ME GO ME GO ME…ok, so that was cheesy, but you can SO understand my excitement, right???
