Internal angst about tomorrow...

Friday, June 24, 2011

On the one hand, I'm really excited for my favorite Italian restaurant tomorrow, but on the other hand, I'm dreading it! How am I ever going to get out of that place without consuming my entire day's worth of calories and carbs? Not to mention the sodium! I'm going to look like a parade balloon before the night is out!

Tomorrow is going to be cottage cheese and coffee for breakfast, then I'll do my best not to eat for a family of 4 at the restaurant for lunch. I'm still having my cannoli though. I'm watching what I eat, not applying for sainthood!!!! lol Once I get home and log my carb-filled meal, I'll see what I've got left to play with for the rest of the day. It may be salad for the rest of the day, but its a sacrifice I'm willing to make. This will be the last time in a really long time that we'll get to go out to eat with our friends. They leave July 8th for a month back home, and then they're off to Germany for at least 3 years. :( Once they get back, they'll be stationed at a different post. I can't even think about it, it makes me so sad.

After I digest my lunch, I'm coming home and working out. I'll have to really push it for the rest of the weekend so I don't post a gain for Monday's weigh-in. I don't want to be dropped from the Last Person Standing competition any sooner than I have to. lol I'll be happy with half a pound loss, just so its still going down. You know, its too bad I was so bad at sports, because WOW am I competitive! lol If they gave out Olympic medals for good intentions, I'd be decorated in bling! lol

I've still got to work out tonight. I'm skipping walking tonight. Opting for indoor fitness. I need to give my feet a rest, and I love working out barefoot. Good thing I bought those $90 shoes then, right? lol

Have a great night everyone! I'll see you tomorrow!

    lol, you crack me up!!! I'm picturing you in bling, or a tshirt that says Best of intentions, LOL! Well, looks like you were worried for nothing!!! You were able to maintain your intake, and still not have to eat salad for the rest of the day! Sorry about your friends having to leave! That sucks!!! Do you guys get to communicate at all while they are in Germany?

    Don't beat yourself up about going out to eat. Enjoy the time with your friends, and just stick to your workout plan. Like you said, you're not signed up for sainthood! I've also asked for half a meal to be placed in a box ( or done it myself). You feel weird asking to have i done the first couple of times, but it really does help. Enjoy the cannoli! :)

    Just a suggestion ... sometimes they will offer a 1/2 portion pasta and if they do ask them to box half of it even before they bring it to you. I have actually done that a few times now. I eat the other half for lunch the next day !! Make sure you eat salad prior to your entree too ... that always helps me. All in moderation, right ?? Enjoy yourself and don't get too wrapped up into it. emoticon

    Sounds like you have nothing to worry about. You have a plan so someplace in your mind you know what needs to happen. You can eat the food you like and still not be sad because you did it. I have no doubt that you will get it done. emoticon
