Wednesday October 3, 2012

This was an average, busy day. I went to work early to meet a customer. On the way I stopped at the grocery store to pick up a few things, fresh fruit, baby spinach, cereal and almond milk.

After work we went to IKEA to get a desk chair for our granddaughter. "Grandma, there is a pink one I saw at IKEA that would be perfect." Of course we had to go get it! She is spending a couple of afternoons a week with us at our shop so we're setting up a "work station" for her, with her pencils, markers, papers and craft items. So anyway...

Of course a trip to IKEA means Swedish meatballs! This time I was prepared. I had rechecked the nutritional values on line before we left the shop. Seeing the points values in black and white strengthened my resolve to practice PORTION CONTROL!! So I ordered my plate of meatballs and mashed potatoes with a side of vegetables and a small salad. The MOMENT we sat down at a table I immediately removed 9 of the 15 meatballs to Vern's plate, leaving me with 6 meatballs, and a small serving of mashed potatoes and gravy. I am so stinkin proud of myself for not eating those other 9 meatballs!!

We walked around IKEA for a while, looking at this and that. I love that place! We left with our tummies full of Swedish meatballs and a pink desk chair and desk accessories in the trunk.

When we got home I treated myself to my favorite Greek yogurt with PB2, banana, and a vitacake.
