Off Jenny Craig and on my own :P

i'm off jenny craig cause it's getting to be too expensive. so i'm on my own, planning my menu everyday. i was scared at first but after a few days, i realized i can do this! i haven't lost or gained which is a good thing. i have been challenged with temptations, like going to a jazz gig at the hollywood bar & grill. i had a long day with tutoring and auditions and i was starved! i thought about cheating for a minute and a half but the little angel on my right shoulder defeated the big devil on my left one. i chose an ahi tuna steak salad with the dressing on the side. i only put like 2 teaspoons of dressing and i dipped my fork in it a few times. that's one great way that a bodybuilder lady taught me: instead of puring the dressing on your salad, dip your fork before you grab some greens. guess what? it works and you can taste the dressing really well. that way you save yourself about 200 calories!!
