Ok, so I swore off eating out... that didn't last long. But I've been making really good choices until tonight. Hubby and I went to Cheddar's tonight... big mistake. I really wanted cheese and pasta so I got the Spazangna. YUM! Then to top it all off I got drunk (no alcohol) on the power of the pasta and decided to split a Monster cookie dessert. YIKES!! I feel sick. Hubby and I walked tonight, but all I could do was 3.31 miles and we were slow. So after our walk, I went online to get nutritional info and at least log my faux pas. No such luck. Cheddar's doesn't provide nutritional info - basically refuses to do so. Not gonna eat there again w/o them coming clean with complete nutritional info. ( Notice I didn't say I wouldn't jump again, just raised my standards.)
I've actually gone out into the night on a chocolate forage and won't even say what I came home with. We all do it.
Too bad Cheddar's won't provide any nutritional information. You had one night of "food passion," but it hasn't derailed you. Sometimes you have to allow yourself to eat the foods you love but that aren't the best choice. Even the Biggest Loser gives its contestants one day a week to go off their diet plan. I've heard it helps to confuse your body so you don't hit a plateau. Maybe it's right and maybe it's not. Just don't beat yourself up over this. The added stress is counterproductive.
It's a new day. Smile, exercise, and climb back on that wagon. You are doing great and looking great. You got this!
Eating out is my downfall. We do it alot and at some places have no idea what the calories are. The one thing that I always do it take home half of my meal. That minimizes the damage. Today's another day. That meal is in the past! 3700 days ago
ELUNAMAKATA I recently (like a week ago) started crawling back towards the wagon. I didn't fall off the wagon, I jumpped and rolled down into a foodgasam! haha! I know exactly where you are coming from right now. Hop back on with us! 3702 days ago
