Let's Go Mavs!

Good morning!  I'm dragging quite a bit.  My one glass of wine treat last night at the Mavericks game turned into three glasses and apparently when you have been eating well, the next day that feels like shots.  Yeesh.  So, that is my confession, close to three glasses of wine. BUT, I made very good food choices...chicken, prime rib, roasted veggies and fresh fruit.  No bread, no pasta, no potatoes, no dessert. 

I felt good about my decisions but was concerned that the scale wouldn't feel the same this morning.  However, I was down 4 tenths from yesterday, so it appears no harm done.  But we had so much fun!  Sitting court side and mingling with the VIPs is such a fun thing once in a while.  We were sitting next to one of the part owners of the team and BFF got to try on his championship ring.  Too cool!  We ate dinner with and then sat a few seats down from M00SE Johnston.  He is a former Cowboy and current FOX commentator.  I spoke with him very briefly but he seems like a nice guy.  I also got to give a little shout to a former IU player that now plays for the Magic and got a smile.  Good times!

But now it is back to reality!!  I have a lot to do at work today but I'm going to make myself stop for lunch and work out.  Then tonight is my monthly girls dinner and we are going to a restaurant that has a mostly paleo menu, so that will be awesome!

Today's food plan:
Breakfast:  Peppermint tea (18 days to coffee!).  Egg beaters and breakfast sausage.
Lunch:  Leftover Char Sui Pork & veggies.
Snack:  Grapes and mixed nuts.
Dinner:  Not sure yet.  I would like to try something new, but I usually get the same dish...sweet potatoes, brisket and mushrooms with a fried egg topper.

Hugs!

Great job staying away from the bread and carbs. LOL @ the 3 wines = 3 shots...alcohol hits me pretty hard but leaves a bit quicker also. It honestly doesn't matter much what "type" it is I'm a lightweight either way (at least when it comes to drinking! HA!)

I also have no idea what we're having for dinner tonight, which is not such a good thing since I have a family to feed! Why do they expect me to cook for them every night? :-)
Great job on the food. Sounds like you had a blast, and you deserved that wine!
