Is all shook up.. aha!

Last night me and flat mate went out to an Elvis night at our local art gallery! Katie managed to get free tickets through work and it was pretty cool. This is the guy on our table! He owns an Elvis museum in Oldham. Pretty crazy, he kept us laughing all night, infact I got face ache from smiling too much and at one point he reduced us to tears of laughter. We were rubbish at the quiz but loved the impersonater. Who at one point swung his hips in my direction and serenaded me. lol. the joys!

The reason I'm talking about it is they were giving out free 'Elvis' food. Which was glazed krispy kreme doughnuts, large hotdogs and southern comfort shots! I caved and allowed myself a doughnut. It took me 120 calories over for the day but I had been to the gym (that was my rationale). It was absolutely delicious. I avoided the southern comfort and the hotdogs. And kept it to ONE doughnut even though every one else was stuffing their faces. But when I added the doughnut to my weightloss recording thing it said it had 13 grams of fat. THIRTEEN GRAMS OF FAT. Just reading me feels sick. However it only took me 4% over my fat percentage target for the day.

So I am not feeling guilty for eating one doughnut. Take that weight loss.

An Elvis night- that sounds so fun!! I think that treating yourself to a doughnut was a good call. I always think that if you keep denying yourself things you will one day hit a point where you just HAVE to have everything. Plus I would give anything for a Krispy Kreme doughnut! Lol.
Have a great day today!

Sounds like a lot of fun - you are doing so well now - enjoying a great evening out and managing to eat sensibly and enjoying what you have. Kudos to you!

I'm 'A little bit of green' with envy for your success, but also 'all shook up'!!! Krispy Kreme donuts are 'A little bit of evil' to be sure! 'Fools rush in' but you sure didn't! Way to stay away from that 'hound dog', I mean hot dog! Keep up the good work 'Today, tomorrow and forever'!!!!

LOL yeah what kind of donut??? I know that a boston creme from dunkin' donuts costs me 6 points---but sometimes wow is it worth it! Youre great for stopping at 1 when you could've had your fill for free. Awesome!
PS and I love to think of you getting a face-ache from laughter! so great :-D

I am so proud of you!!! I wish I could be your flat mate. How fun are you? Elvis....you crack my shit up.

And one doughnut is fine. Moderation is key. When I went home a week or so ago, I got the best doughnuts ever and ate one a day for 3 straight days and I do not regret it one bit. And weight still came off at the end of the week.

Look at us learning to live all healthy. I could not be more proud of how you have grown and feel about yourself. How has the perviness at the gym been going?
