A binge free weekend

I can proudly say this is the first weekend in a very long time that I have not binged.  Friday night we went to a local Italian food joint to celebrate my mother-in-law's birthday.  Let's just say I did not pick my food choices wisely.  Instead of a salad with low-fat or no-fat dressing, I ate a full fledged Cesear salad with 1/2 a piece of bread.  My oldest and I shared a plate that consisted of lasagna, manicotti, and cannelloni.  I gave him 2/3 of everything and I had a couple of bites of each item (which even my hubby noticed and mentioned to the rest of the table).  By the end of the night I was at 1900 calories.  OUCH!

Saturday morning I woke up and decided not to give in to any temptations over the weekend.  Weekends are always the hardest because it seems we run non stop.  It's easier to eat out (which we still did) than to make lunch/dinner at home.  I kept my calories in check and resisted those damn donuts my husband bought!  See below for my food log.

Saturday:  1191 calories
Breakfast - egg white sandwich on wheat bread
Lunch - Chicken soft tacos
Dinner - I-Hop Simple and Fit Wheat Toast French Toast (I ate maybe half of my plate)

Sunday:  1315 calories
Breakfast:  Oatmeal (even though my husband woke me up with freshly baked donuts...GRRRR)
Snack:  Oiko's greek yogurt with simply fruit strawberry jelly
Lunch:  Sonic grilled chicken wrap
Dinner:  Baked potato (no skin) with light sour cream, light butter, pinch of cheese, and a squeeze of bbq sauce.

Awesome job this weekend! They are the hardest for me too, I wish I could say I did as well.

Breads and pastas are my weak spots! And cupcakes. Or anything carby. Anywho! Your weekend looks great! Weekends are usually easier for me because I have control over the meals. At work, we have lunch (and sometimes breakfast) catered. I still have control over my choices, but it's harder! Great job making healthy choices eating out!

Thanks for visiting my blog:)

Weekends are harder for many of us. Funny thing is that I don't work so it makes no sense they should be different for me than weekdays... but they are. I loved how, in a post below, you said that "food is just food." I'm not there yet. Hoping.
