I planned ahead for the Superbowl tradition of chili, queso and chips like I mentioned Saturday. I'll be honest, I planned way ahead, and it still wasn't enough. I am going to have to put tortilla strips on my mental list of trigger foods. Let's just say I went into game time having only consumed 11 of my daily 40 points with a plan to eat a bowl (2c) of chili, 4 saltines, 3 ounces of Mission tortilla strips, 2 servings (1c) of queso and a no pudge brownie to finish it all off.
I kept dipping and chipping outside of my carefully measured portions until I hit the old "gorger's remorse" wall. I still had my brownie because I'd never tried the no pudge and was curious how they were. I guess they were pretty decent because I went back for another one (in my opinion, though, they aren't worth the extra money for the measly points reduction below reduced fat generic brownie mix).
When the smoke cleared, I tried my best to assess the damage and came up with about 45 points consumed for the whole day. That's not bad. I only dipped 5 deep into my weeklies, but considering I consumed 34 of those points in a 2 hour time span, that's just bananas. I regret breaking my no guilting the indulgences rule because I really don't get queso that often anymore.
I still really enjoyed the day. The game was exciting, I cleaned up the kitchen as I cooked, so there was no huge pile of shit to wash at the end, and best of all, I drank a gallon and a half of water over the course of the day. That's pretty impressive to me considering I could have drank another 24-ounce refill if I didn't limit myself to 1.5gal a day and I did that without working up a sweat at all. I'm probably gonna need it too for all that salt.
Today was another good water day (I'm up for another 3 hours and already at 120oz), I worked out for an hour after work, and I'm about to enjoy some leftover rotisserie chicken, mashers and sugar snap peas... yum!
BTW, anyone got a suggestion on how to get rid of the leftover 2.5c of queso and 2.5 pounds of tortilla strips? Damn Costco....
