I thought I would just post quickly since, again, I have been MIA.
My eating has had it's ups and downs. Did ok on Saturday, not so good at a party on Sunday, did great on Monday and Tuesday and binged on Chocolate and Cookies on Wednesday!
But I will say that on Saturday, I chose to stray slightly from the plan during lunch. I went to my parents restaurant with my cousin's for lunch. I was undecided on what to order. My parent's restaurant isn't exactly the healthiest place to go. There are a few things I get there that are "less" bad.
However, what I really wanted was a reuben! The reuben sandwiches there are the best I've ever eaten! In case you are not familiar, it's rye bread with corned beef & sauerkraut, swiss cheese and 1000 island dressing too.
I was torn! Do I spend a lot of points on something that is good but not what I really want? My cousin, always the genius she is, said that if I was going to spend points, I might as well have something that I truly will enjoy! Genius!
So I did. I got the reuben! I don't like the dressing so I skipped that. I also got it without the butter on the bread that they use to grill it. That made me feel better :p It was delicious!
And what better way then to top it off with some of their delicious ice cream! It's a premium ice cream and WAY high in calories and fat! So I had 1 scoop of the newer flavor Tiramisu! Yummy! Now that's a way to spend some points!
So I'm back in business today.
On another note, I have a phone call scheduled for later tonight with a new date. I've only emailed him so far and never met in person yet. We were set up. One of my cousins and his mom work together. Talk about matchmakers! And I really hate being set up. So we will see how this goes.
We will be speaking for the first time today and a potential date is tentatively scheduled for Tuesday night (yes, we are taking things soooooooo sloooooooooowly!) lol. I'm kind of nervous. I'm not a huge dater! And haven't dated all too much while losing weight! I just felt like I needed to take care of me first, then do the dating thing. But I SO hate the "dating thing!" To be continued...
