dh requested Panda Express for this week's take out night. I normally get a double entree of orange chicken (sticky sweet, fried) and a whopping helping of chow mein. This meal normally comes to at least 1300 calories (depending on how generous the server is) plus ungodly amounts of sodium.
My NSV for the day...I chose a single serving cup of shanghai angus beef (with onions and asparagus in it) for just 220 calories! I was really happy with that. It was only 830mg sodium vs what I usually get...over 2200mg sodium. I call that a win. I had ONE bite of my daughter's chicken and ONE bite of my son's chow mein. I decided I was much better off with what I got.
So after that great decision on my way home from dropping my son off at his friend's house, I got a chocolate milkshake for dessert. *hanging head in shame*
I still saved a TON of grief from the sodium I didn't eat, and my total calories were still lower than my previous orders at Panda Express.
Start (1/9/14): 276.8
The only goal I have right now is to get my ass in gear and get the scale moving the other way!
