When I used to have a great week at the scale, I would do some serious celebrating. Usually, that meant I consumed a day’s points in one meal. Seems just slightly counterintuitive, does it not? However, my celebration this week – a trip to Trudy’s for delicious fajitas, writing everything down that I ate, and only going a few points over my daily allowance. It felt WAY better than that entire cheesecake. (Disclaimer: I never ate an entire cheesecake in one sitting. But I totally wanted to.)
So we went to Trudy’s, which was a slightly scary decision in the moment. However, I ordered the portobello mushroom fajitas, which are seasoned to absolute perfection, and I didn’t eat the cheese, sour cream, or the rice that comes with it. I know – this might sound AWFUL to you. But I put salsa, pico de gallo, and guacamole on my deliciously seasoned vegetables, all on top of my whole wheat tortillas. It was so scrumptious, and I did not feel at all deprived.
So treat yourself. But don’t eat an entire cheesecake. That’s bad.
