Birthday Salad

Yes, I brought a salad to Binxy's birthday party today. So sue me.

Breakfast: Two eggs (one yolk), slice of double-fiber whole grain wheat bread, fruit smoothie (yogurt, banana, strawberry), skim milk with whey protein.

Snack: Apple.

Lunch: Salad (cup of spinach, cup of romaine mix, serving of red peppers, serving of grilled chicken, half a tomato, olive oil, balsamic vinegar).

Snack: Carrots, sharp cheddar cheese, mixed nuts, raisins.

Dinner: Bottom round, two servings of asparagus, glass of red wine, dark chocolate.

I don't have a lot to add, other than it was a great party, everyone said the cakes were great, and I didn't have any. Yes, I'm allowed to sample and take small portions, and so on, but again: I just feel if I avoid it, I'll do better than if I "allow" a bit. I guess after the cake binge in the near future, I'll realize how wrong I was!

I did have a thought today about what to do with all my leftover Halloween candy. Actually, I had a panic moment about it, then thought I'd just bring it to school the next day and leave it in the teachers' lounge. Somebody will take it, right?
