Good Choices = Good Feelings

As most of you know, last Friday night I ate a some junk food on our girls-only overnight trip and I felt very yucky the next day. Well, I'm back on track with my healthier eating and I am feeling so much better!!!

Plus, today we went to Sam's club and decided to eat lunch there before going home. What to eat?? I knew I wasn't going to eat a hot dog or slice of pizza, but a hot pretzel with mustard sounded good. Hey I'm sure it's not too high in fat, right? Well, they also have a chicken caesar salad made with romaine lettuce, grilled boneless, skinless chicken breast, a few shavings of real parmesan cheese, croutons and the caesar dressing.

I was a little worried about the dressing, but since it is served in a little cup on the side I figured it would be fine; and overall, a much better choice than the hot pretzel. So, I bought the salad and ate that with half of the dressing while my family ate slices of pizza. I even only ate two of the croutons and gave the rest to my kids.

I wanted a taste of crust, or even a bite of the pizza, but I didn't have any. I stuck with my salad. It was very yummy and I felt so good having made a better choice while eating out.

Note: My husband asked if my salad was okay and looked a little worried for me. LOL!! I told him it was wonderful and he even shared a few bites. Something about eating better just feels so good!

  1. Wow! I wonder if you would have made the same choice six months ago? Excellent job.

    I remember John getting concerned about me sometimes when I was on my journey. He'd say, "Is that all you are going to eat?" I'd nod - knowing what was right for me at that moment!
