So last night was the Variety Show at my youngest's school and we had to be there at 6:30pm. Hmmm, wondered about dinner all day then decided to pick up a pizza - yes, PIZZA - in the early afternoon and just reheat it for dinner. I looked up the cals - 300 per slice. Hmmm, at 2 slices thats 600 cals (yes, I know you're impressed w/my amazing math skills ). I'd already had about 750 cals w/bfast and lunch, still needed a substantial snack and since we were eating at 5p.m. and not getting home till 9:30p.m., I also figured I'd be hungry again. 2 slices would put my cal count for the day waaaay too high. I opted for a cheese stick and 1 serving of mini rice cakes around 3:00pm and only had 1 slice of pizza loaded w/mushrooms w/a side salad for dinner. Yeah, that was good; but this is better. We stopped at DQ after the show and as tempting as a mint oreo blizzard was, I had nothing. Zilch, zip, nada. Came home and had 1 caramel rice cake topped w/a tblspn of vanilla yogurt, a few sliced strawberries and a sprinkling of granola. Sweet, crunchy, tasty and about 100 cals. Total cal count for the day yesterday was 1400. Stayed on track and didn't blow it. Doin' a happy dance today, baby!!!
P.S. Anyone who will ever have a kid in some type of variety show -- um, remind your kid to smile when they're up there and not to just stand perfectly-still-with-a-look-of-fright on their faces!

KUDOS!!! LOL @ comment about having your kids smile. When my baby (he's 18 now) was 6 he wanted to try wrestling so his 1st time up he layed like a limp puppy. LOL we were yelling at him to at least wiggle. It was so funny it's like once the new kids got up they all did that.
In the middle of difficulty lies opportunity.
