We had our first takeaway Chinese last Friday evening.
Normally we would buy up most of the Chinese food currently available in the south east. This time I limited myself to one dish of chicken chow mein and a spring roll. The only thing odd, was not having a definitive number to write down for my calories spreadsheet. I had to guesstimate the calories from the various websites' guesstimates. I don't think I was too far out.
Lots of good points to note:-
. it only cost me a fraction of what it would normally
. I actually tasted it, instead of it being a single flavour of everything mixed together
. as I don't drink now I was able to go and pick it up (£5.80 delivery saving (we live in the middle of nowhere))
. not eating calories-worth of Chinese food days later because we bought so much
. and of course, I didn't over indulge on the day
One more hurdle, hurdled. Bounce!
