Yahoo! Yay for ‘re-framing’ a day. Going to the gym this morning (which I thought of as I was writing the blog this morning!) completely changed my outlook for the day, and I believe it changed my food choices as well.
I got a good 35 minute challenging workout at the gym, which included 2 Tabata intervals, and was able to get 20 minutes in the pool, followed by 5 glorious minutes in the spa. I brought along one of the apple/laughing cow cheese/walnut things for an after-workout snack.
Then I was off to Tracy to meet dad and sis at ‘Texas Roadhouse.’ I wasn’t sure what I was going to do, but I was really going to try to make good choices, and not eat too much. I was really really happy (really…) with the food choices I made. I got the smallest steak they had (6 ounces) and a baked sweet potato, and side salad. I got the dressing on the side, and did that ‘dip your fork in the dressing’ thing. I took the butter out of the potato, and only took a couple of bites of it-planning to bring it home for another meal. Best of all, I only ate half of the steak. SCORE! I am getting better and better at negotiating this restaurant eating.
Right back on the road after we ate. I had spotted a Marshall’s across from the restaurant, and wanted to check out their socks. I let myself try on a few dresses, and found one that really looks cute, AND is not ankle length (I’m 5 feet tall…)
