Day 4 of 2 Week Food Challenge

Saturday, December 19, 2009

A less than stellar day. Started off good and had good intentions. Our son is home from college and his girlfriend is spending a couple days with us before she heads home to Nebraska. So, I thought it would be nice to take them out for a little Christmas shopping and go to lunch. The restaurant I had selected was packed! I had already decided what I wanted to order and was all ready to enjoy without over indulging. I asked them if there was somewhere else they would like to go and they selected Buffalo Wild Wings. Urgggg! I don't know the menu and I'm way over hungry at this point! (Dangerous Combination). We decided to get a couple appetizers to share instead of individual meals. A plate of nachos and a basket of fries with chili and cheese . . . so not on my 'clean' foods. So full of toxic stuff my body does not need. I digress, I ate it, it's done, no excuses.

Steel Cut Oats
1 TBSP dark chocolate chips

Homemade Cranberry/Orange/Pecan Scone
1 Hard boiled egg
1 Tangerine

Nachos with cheese and jalapenos
French Fries with chili and cheese

4 Celery Stalks
1 Tangerine
1 TBSP Sunflower Seed Butter

I am sooo glad I logged my nutrition before dinner! I would have gone way over my calories and sodium content. I am on the higher end of my calories today. Doing the 30 day shred tonight and drinking lots of water to balance out my choices today. Tomorrow is a new day with new choices to be made. I look forward to the challenge.

    Big hug...I hear ya on the restaurant! Sometimes you just have to go with the flow and then pick yourself back up and jump in the saddle anew! You did very, very well considering the choices that you had at the time. That nutrition tracker is a godsend isn't it? I SO emoticon it! You are my 'little light' now 'shine on...shine on!' emoticon emoticon

    Great attitude and commitment! Even w/ your restaurant "splurge"--you still were in range. Whoo hoo!

    I'm sure the 30 Day Shred helped a lot too! (That's one super-tough workout! I haven't made it to Level 3 YET!)
