30 Activity Points Worth of Dancing

I survived Barrister's Ball (also known as Law School Prom). I have to say, I feel like an adult for being able to stay out late the night before and still make it for a marathon of bar prep sessions early the next morning.

Arriving at the ball
I followed some wise advise and ate dinner at home before going to the event. It made it so much easier to pass up the stuffed mushrooms, stromboli, mini meatballs, coconut chicken, and the dessert buffet. I managed to eat four hors'devours, a half a piece of cake, and a mini cannoli the entire night. In retrospect, the desserts were a poor choice, but they were well worth it. The desserts were the only thing that pushed me over my daily points. In other words, I didn't use many Weekly Allowance Points. The insanely long line at the bar deterred me from drinking. I spent my time on the dance floor instead. I managed to drink two small, white wine spritzers throughout the night. I drank lots of water to stay hydrated. I was dancing so hard that I desperately needed the water. I calculated my points today, and I supposedly burned 30 Activity Points from two hours of dancing. Amazing! That would definitely explain why my body aches worse than if I had gone to the gym. I don't spill my Activity Points into my daily allowance or else I would have tons of points remaining. 

All-in-all, I had a great time and have no regrets. Looks like I need to go to more dance parties...

Sounds like it was fun hope you enjoyed yourself. Yea eating before you go is always the best choice saves you from a complete disaster. I think your choices were ok, especially because you most likely burned them off on the dance floor.

I seem to settle for "okay" food choices to avoid feeling like I'm depriving myself. However, I know I could lose weight faster if I just didn't eat the dessert, for example, but I'm still not strong enough. Luckily, I really worked out on the dance floor.

Yes, Yes you did. Luckily you have a loving husband who was willing to lotion and massage your dying feet at the end of the night. <3

Those shoes looked awesome, but I paid for it at the end of the night.

Yea but if you completely avoid the items then when you get to your goal weight if you decide to start eating it again you will gain from it faster because your body wont be used to it.
