Happy Monday all! Today I was back to work and really focusing on getting back into my healthy eating groove after vacation. I was pretty hungry all day so I tried my best to pick healthy snacks and did a decent job resisting a few temptations.
I had a work lunch today at Eikos in Napa. What does a person do when you have this huge sushi platter put on the table along with crispy tempura green beans and spicy curry potstickers?!
Well, I counted them out and allowed myself to go back 2.25 times lol. I know each piece of a raw fish sushi (think spicy tuna) is 1 SmartPoint and each piece of a tempura shrimp fried sushi is roughly 2 SmartPoints. I filled my plate with 5 pieces then I savored each one before refilling it again. I let my co-workers devour the rest but I did have 1 extra piece for good measure. My 7 green beans – worth it! The potsticker not so much.
What I’m proud of…Stopping when I was content, using my plate to count it all out including my green beans (great visual and awareness), resisting dessert and balancing it out with a healthy dinner a la The Husband.
