Deep Thoughts at Bedtime
I had a nice time at my work party yesterday and survived without falling face first (mouth open) into the Chinese food. I took a little bit of everything (probably, the highest in points was the orange-beef that this particular place does in a spicy way that I love) and just enjoyed eating it. I knew I was only having one plate, so I took my time and just enjoyed everything. kwim?
I found that by the end, by taking my time and all, that I WAS full enough and I didn't have to eat the dessert squares (that looked really good and were from this amazing little bakery in the town that I live in). I wasn't even tempted. I think part of it was knowing that I'd have to track them and I could get more "bang for my point buck" if I had some frozen yogurt or something at home, but part of it was just not mindless eating like I usually would do at a party.
I will never stop loving food. I know that about myself. I think I actually enjoy food MORE when I'm being conscious of what I'm eating and appreciating it. I could have had a delicious square and tracked it if I wanted, but that delicious square wasn't the boss of me. "Take THAT, delicious square!"
