That's right today I'm not only dealing with Halloween but also a Chinese buffet.
That’s o.k I have a plan. I’ve been to the same Chinese buffet many times and I’ve figured out what works for me. My plate had lots of veggies, some shrimp and some chicken with no sauce or skin. I had 1/2 a small bowl of hot and sour soup. My second very small plate had fruit on it. That’s it. I enjoyed it all and I’m satisfied and I never leave with any guilty feelings. Pictures below.
I also had to walk a bit to get to the restaurant and on the way home I got off of the bus early and did W1D2 of the C25K. It was pouring the whole time :(
I had so much fun doing the dishes today. That's right. I said it. I can only do dishes if I'm listening to music. This morning Ralph was still in bed so I was doing dishes with the sound pumped up and every time I heard a zumba song I'd dance and every time I heard Pink I was singing. O.k I was singing with all of the songs :) You should have seen my Gangnam dance. O.k maybe it was a good job you didn't.
I have no idea why I'm in such a great frame of mind today. Or maybe it was from all the vitamins in that awesome fresh juice yesterday!
Rant for today:
I was reading a blog (sorry can't remember which one doesn't really matter) today where the blogger said well you know you're going to have a least one of the treats you're handing out. Right after reading that I just kept reading other blogs. But the statement just kept coming back to me. Now I have absolutely no problem with anyone who wants to eat some of their treats if that's what they want to do. I do have a problem with someone saying yes you are going to eat the treats your giving out. No I am not going to have any because I know that one small treat will lead to many many more and that is not how I want to remember this Halloween! I'm also skipping by all the unhealthy "healthy" Halloween treat recipes online. Yes they may be really tasty and o.k for some people but for me they just turned that switch on that I want left off. It honestly doesn't bother me what other people do I just don't like them to presume what I will do. O.k end of rant :)
