The day before going out for my anniversary, I posted about what I ate that day and my plans for handling eating out on my anniversary. I just wanted to update how it went.
I did end up sticking to my plan. We ate out mid-afternoon and I had what I had planned: the Kung Pao Shrimp, small, steamed. I ended up getting both a Vegetable Spring Roll (4 SmartPoints) and a Vietnamese Chicken Salad Roll with a little peanut sauce (7 SmartPoints). I had both because I overslept Sunday morning so had a late breakfast and I knew that we were eating late enough I wouldn’t have a large meal in the evening. The total of the meal was 28 SmartPoints. I ended Sunday with 12 Weekly SmartPoints left to last me through Friday. I had aimed for having at least 10 left, so I was happy to end up with a couple of more. I was glad that I decided to eat at a restaurant where I could easily make my points and calories work. That allowed me to enjoy the occasion without any stress.
The only negative was on the exercise front. I had taken Friday off from exercising, since I was a little sore from my personal training session on Friday. I had thought we would take a walk outside on Sunday. But, it was raining so it ended up being a sedentary day. That means I really need to exercise every day for the rest of this week (which ends on Friday).
