Last night, I went out with two of my closest BFFs Madeline and her sister Michelle to dinner and a movie. Yes, I'm that super loser who saw TWSBDP2 twice. I went for the company :)
Yesterday was a no carb day for me, I'm trying to avoid carbs altogether since I have a big weigh in Friday. I'm going into the weigh in completely blind. I want to be surprised. I haven't weighed myself since November 16th. I have not set one foot on that scale. It's been liberating, but it's time to face the music. That said- I can't ever remember feeling lighter, and I'm getting a lot of "You look so much thinner" comments lately, so I'm going to assume the scale has some good things to say. *Fingers Crossed*
Ok so no carb day at a restaurant. Womp Womp Womp you say. It's tricky but not impossible. It is always possible to make good choices when dining out. You have to majorly flex that wll power muscle but like anything else, the more often you do it, the easier it gets!
I passed on the cocktails, because let's face, I had more than my fair share over the holidays and I really try not to drink during the week. At all. Period. I may have had three diet cokes instead.
We ordered edamame as an appetizer
Michelle and I split the Pesto Crusted Trout, I had mine with a side of Broccoli
This was delicious. I normally would order a salad and be the annoying girl who says, "Can I have the spinach salad, no feta, no pecans, no croutons, no cheese, dressing on the side, add grilled shrimp" but I did not want salad. Most often, I find salad's at restaurants to be packing more calories and fat than the above. There's a lot hiding in all those extras added to your leafy greens. Thankfully, Michelle wanted to split. Holler!
Then we went to the movie and I just couldn't resist. I had to have some popcorn. It's my weakness. I ordered a kids pack (only $5.75 in contrast a small popcorn alone is $6- movie theatre rip off) and yes I ate every last one of those gummy bears too!
Back on the no carb train today. Thank you all for the feed back yesterday. My Plantar Fasciitis is feeling the best it has in over a week. I'm presently rolling it on a can of Lysol. I can not wait to sweat like a crazy lady at the gym tonight :) Does anyone know where I can buy Walk Fit shoe inserts? Thank you so much Liveandlovethree for this suggestion! There's a bunch of you set up to "noreply" blogger, so I can't respond to you via email :( If you change this setting we can chat!
Finally got me a new pair of black work slacks. Thank you Limited for those half off holiday sales!
I hope you hit this day over the fence and out of the park! Happy Wednesday!
