We’re taking my stepdaughter and her boyfriend out to dinner tonight. They don’t go out to eat very often. We told them we could go wherever they wanted. They chose an Italian buffet. *sigh*
I wasn’t too hungry so I just munch on a little ham.
Dinner, ah dinner *sigh*
We took my stepdaughter and her boyfriend to dinner last night. We let them pick the restaurant and they chose, wouldn’t you know it, a freaking all you can eat ITALIAN buffet! I started out trying to be good and, although I wasn’t perfect, I wasn’t horrible! I started out with a salad and some vegetables. I put 1 or 2 bites of “no-no” foods on my plate so that I didn’t sit down with a plate full of chicken alfredo or spaghetti and meat sauce. They had rotisserie chicken, which I enjoyed. BUT, they also had an Italian bakery section. *sigh* I had one cannoli, one small (oh, about the circumference of a soft ball…maybe 1/2″ smaller) of chocolate soufflé.
We live in Colorado, which is dry to begin with but in the winters it get SO much drier! Your skin itches and you purchase stock in skin lotion. You also stay thirsty! I can’t have aspartame. It gives me headaches … like wickedly bad headaches … I guess I’m allergic … so going out to eat is always a fun mind tug at what to drink. I don’t want iced tea for dinner because I don’t want the caffeine and I can’t have a diet soda because they stupidly all contain aspartame (not all diet sodas but the found diet sodas do…how come nobody has Diet Rite on their fountain soda “menu”?). And I do NOT like plain water..icky! So, I typically suck it up and take the calories and have Sprite. I had THREE last night because I’m staying so thirsty with this weather change.
I’m going to skip weighing, at least tomorrow, and have 1 – 3 days of protein only. I don’t want to know how far this meal set me back
