As the weekend approaches so does my trip off the bandwagon!
It's Friday and not unlike almost every other Friday, we go to town after work.
Going to town after work = eating out!
Sometimes it is as simple as bringing home fast food. Tonight we decided to go and eat at Boston Pizza.
My whole day in general was a bit off. I took items to work that I knew were higher calorie than I would usually take, but did it with the mindset that I could have those couple yummy items OR have lots more so-so things. I went with the yummy, of course. This was before I knew we would go out for dinner.
So, in the spirit of keeping it real, here goes!
Breakfast: (495 cal)
1 Lemon Cranberry Muffin
1 Chocolate Chip Granola Bar
Lunch: (627 cal)
2 hot dogs (left over from dinner last night)
2 cups raspberries
Dinner: (896 cal)
1/2 starter size Ceaser salad
1/2 Buffalo Chicken Sandwich
1 order fries
Exercise for today - 35 minutes walking/running - 170 calories burned
NUMBER TOTALS FOR THE DAY:
Calories In - 2017
Calories Burned - 168
Over by 132 calories
Ok, so it's not too bad really right? I am actually pretty impressed with myself. First off, did you notice portion size of dinner? I only really ate half of everything (other than the fries) I am not a salad person, and this one was sort of, blech, not enough dressing and croutons for me, which probably worked in my favor. As for the sandwich, I was pretty sure it was like a zillion calories and stopped at half. The old, don't think about it me, would have stuffed herself with it. Instead, I left pleasantly filled.
On an even better note, I FORCED myself to run tonight. I felt guilty for not doing my complete run last night and also knew I was going to be over with my calories tonight, so I didn't want my numbers to be any larger than they had to be.
Had I not got on the treadmill, I would have been over by 300 calories! So, essentially, I ran off my salad and bit more today.
How about you? How do you manage when you go to eat out?
Until next time,
