I defrosted tilapia for tonight but had NO desire to cook AT ALL. I think by Thursday I’m just spent for the week. I can hardly keep my eyes open now. Anyway, we decided to order Chinese food. Normally I play it safe, get steamed shrimp and chicken with mixed veggies, and then make my own sauce with some soy sauce and ground ginger. I love doing this and I end up have a HUGE satisfying meal for a lot less fat and calories while still ordering take out. How awesome is that?
Well tonight, my brain was on vacation. I don’t know what I was thinking but I just picked up the phone and mindlessly ordered. Just look at some of the options for Chinese take out! The scariest one for me was Lemon Chicken weighing in at 1,400 calories. “It’s like eating three McDonald’s McChicken sandwiches plus a 32-oz. Coke.” OUCH! That was one of my favorite college meals. No wonder I gained over 50 pounds at school!
Now don’t get me wrong what I ordered was good and I don’t think I did “bad” or “ruined” the day but I just feel blagh now. I would have much rather eaten a lighter less salty meal. I can feel my body holding on to water now. Even my rings are getting tight. Blagh, I said. To make it even worse I was planning to weigh in tomorrow. Again, what the heck was I thinking?!?
