Logging Dinner Out
Wednesday, July 07, 2010
I believe that we must do what makes us happy and sometimes for me that is eating out. Tonight it was a celebration with a couple of friends that I have been dining with for over 20 years.
Prior to going I looked at the menu online and decided on Tuna or Salmon. Unfortunately, this restaurant didn’t post the calorie counts so I just tried to pick wisely. They offered only one vegetable other than potato and it was mushrooms which I absolutely hate. So I chose the side of wild rice on the side and Tuna as my entrée. I would have preferred broccoli, but you take what they offer. I also had a couple of bites of the birthday girl’s dessert.
I just plugged in my dinner and I have to say I’m not as bad off as I expected. Even when I let myself indulge a little I still do fairly well. I am getting better at this.
The other positive step I made today was walking three times in the worse hot humid temperatures. I had to drop my car off at the garage and walk 20 minutes to work, I walked at lunch and I walked back to the garage after work. So even in these awful temps I got some cardio in.
