Today was my fiance's birthday. We went out to eat at a smokehouse and they had ribs. I love ribs. Since I have been tracking my calories, I am really paying attention to what I am eating.
A salad with dressing on the side. I dipped my fork in the dressing and used hardly any at all. yay! I kept my hands off the bread. I LOVE bread, and my fiance said it was really good. But I knew that bread was coming soon in crouton form in my soup.
French Onion Soup: I was a little nervous about the cheese and crouton, but it wasn't covered with cheese (hallelujah!) and there were only two little croutons under the cheese. The soup was WONDERFUL and worth every calorie.
1/2 rack of ribs: I got a full rack to take home leftovers. I did NOT touch the potato! This is amazing since I love baked potatoes. But I truly enjoyed my ribs.
I drank four big glasses of water with my meal!
I did not track my calories today (shame, shame) but I tried to be stingy this morning because I knew what was coming. Today was a good lesson for me. I learned that I can still enjoy going out to eat without a ton of salad dressing, bread, or potato. Leaving those things out allowed me to enjoy the food that was REALLY delicious.
Workout note: I spent over an hour trying to get my car out of its parking spot. After a lot of swearing and hitting the steering wheel, I managed to get it out. It was really icy here!
