Yesterday I screwed up big time! Friday night I went out to eat, and I had broiled fish and veggie's, no bread, a salad with only veggies and low fat dressing. Then Saturday came, I ended up not working because I was on standby(called in if someone calls off), so Ryan and I thought olive garden sounded great. I looked it up, they had pasta dishes for less than 500 calories, and salad not exactly good for you but still doable seeing I had 27 points left for the day. Well Olive Garden had too long a wait, 2 kids +wait=bad bad bad times! So we went to Chili's, I didn't get long to look at the menu but I had it narrowed down to three choices
1. Fajita Pita, I would change the french fries for veggies.
2. Guiltless Buffalo Chicken Sandwich, again with a veggie side.
3. Quesadilla Explosion salad. I would ask for no tortilla strips, I would not eat the quesadilla, and get the dressing on the side.
So I picked option 3.....Oh was that ever the wrong wrong choice! Now I did not eat some of the stuff but all together this salad has 1260 calories and 76 grams of fat!!!! Even at best I still ate 20-25 points worth of it. So then me being the good girl I am I didn't eat again the rest of the night right?? WRONG!! Okay so I ate fruit or veggies right?? WRONG!! I ate a fiber one bar, a peanut butter one, which I found out is actually 3 points, not 2 like all the other fiber bars! I also ate a 100 calorie ice cream snack. It was a good thing I cleaned out my cupboards of really bad foods because I certainly screwed things last night. It could have been worse but still I am so mad, I thought I had a good grasp on what was healthy, obviously I need to look up things all the time. The other 2 options I was looking at....both under 500 calories.
Okay deep breathe, the day is over, today is a new day. I will stay on track and I will never again go out to eat without looking things up again. blah blah blah, I don't think I will lose 3.4 pounds this week though.
