I'm back from the family gathering. We anticipated 10-12, and had twice that. Good for me, we ran out of hamburgers. I was at the end of the line by design. I didn't think there would be enough to go around and I certainly didn't mind giving that up. I was correct on the anticipated side dishes, so I ate lots of watermelon. I got three nice sized chunks, which was probably about 3 cups. It was good & cold and juicy just like I like it.
There was no homemade ice cream of any kind, so all my mental gymnastics as to if I was deluding myself was all for naught. Oh well, I'd rather be prepared than not..
I am not saying however, that I was all good at the gathering. For dessert there was key lime pound cake which was store bought and not a temptation at all. There was strawberry pie, which somehow just didn't look appetizing so I skipped it. Finally, there were homemade chocolate chip cookies. I made them. I ate three. YUM!! I feel OK about that. It wasn't the most nutritionally balanced meal, but it was by no means out of control.
J-boy was behind me in line so he didn't get a burger either. He had a taste for one, so we grilled burgers for supper tonight. I feel good about that because we had extra lean ground beef, and I skipped the bun. We also grilled some fresh corn on the cob.
For the day, I've had lots of watermelon, chocolate chip cookies, 4 oz grilled ground beef, and an ear of corn!!
BTW, I started a sparkpeople page. I'm going to go log my food now and see how many calories I had.
