So...I've been MIA for a little while. I took a long weekend this past weekend. My husband and I celebrated our 1st anniversary on Sunday. So, we had off all weekend, Monday & Tuesday. It was sooooo nice! We ended up staying at home and relaxing. It was great! Except for the fact that I ate too much! We did go out to a little anniversary lunch on Sunday after church. We went to Hibachi. I didn't find much "accurate" nutrition info for their food, but we went anyway. I just told myself it would be a "cheat" day. After all, I did well on Saturday - and I went out for a run. That was the last time I worked out! Time kinda got away from me. I had good intentions........
~Here we are on our anniversary @ Hibachi~
Anyway - the eating thing...it's SO much harder for me when I'm at home. With my options wide open, I snacked....and snacked...ugh. I did try to get things back on track yesterday. We did kind of a brunch thing at Bob Evans...and I got a lighter option - so that was two meals in one. However, my friend Steph's birthday dinner was at Outback last night. I ended up hungry in the meantime. I tried to prepare in advance....I looked at Outback's menu & nutrition info. OH MY! I had heard that they were bad...........but MAN, I was seriously wondering what I was going to eat! SEVERAL things I looked at were over 1000 calories. For ONE MEAL! *sigh* I remember looking up one entree - and it was 42 points! That's WAY over the points I have for the day!!!! I didn't do TOO bad overall. I did have a little bit of cheese fries and bloomin' onion. My meal was supposedly under 500 calories since they listed an option to have it made without butter. I was glad to see that option!
So with all that said, I got on the scale this morning............and I'm up a little. I'm not surprised. I'm hoping I can break even this week! We'll see. I was ready to go this morning. I packed a healthy lunch, parked at the mall and walked to work (I usually just park in the building), took the stairs (7 flights), and have a positive attitude.... No matter what the scale says tomorrow, next week will be better! This was a week of celebrations - and I'm not going spend time feeling guilty about celebrating love and awesome people in my life!
