Fourth Day

Thursday, April 01, 2010

Another day with lunch on the go! I had to go out of town for a consultation for a new doctor. It was 50 miles away. I had my normal breakfast at home and left town at 11:30. My appointment was for 1:00 so I had to leave early to allow enough time as it was a new place I had never been. I did my homework and printed out a map from the internet and memorized all the names of the streets that I had to turn on. I was there until 3:00 doing paperwork and going through the consultation. I wanted to stop at OUTBACK and get a big salad and a small steak but since they didn't open until 4 PM I had to change my plans. There was a CRACKER BARREL close by so I stopped there and had lunch. I was looking at the menu and drooling over all the stuff I would have usually chosen but I ended up with the turkey and carrots and some dressing. I had water with lemon to drink and skipped dessert. ( I love their chocolate cobbler! ) But I didn't really want it. I was full enough with what I had eaten. After I ate, I just sat there and finished my water and played their game with the golf tees. I ended up with 2 tees left and by their rules, I am "purty smart". It was a very nice day over all and it ended up being 82*! WOW! Didn't get any exercise in but stayed on track. Tomorrow is another day for exercise!! emoticon emoticon

    I do the same thing when traveling - the memorizing each town I'll be going through, or streets that lead up to turns. Isn't that TOO COOL!?!?! I wonder how many other people do that, too?
    There's a Cracker Barrel right here on the hotel grounds, but I don't care for "home cooking" when I go out to eat, seeing as *I* can do that, and better (I'm so conceited!!!) I'd like to try them out for a decent b-fast, though as at the hotel it's all carbs that they serve in the mornings.
    You made GOOD choices at lunch! KUDOS!!!

    Cracker Barrel is one place you can go and get tons of calories or watch what you order and do well. I don't often stop there as the one I have in my area is about 25 miles away. You can put together a good lunch if you think about it. (Yes, the Chocolate dessert is fantastic. I ate it before learning just HOW bad it is!!) You did well on what sounds like a very busy day. Keep up the great work! Eileen
