We were out all day but I did really well. We went to Applebees and I ordered off of their new 550 or less calorie menu. I had the Tropical Chicken Salad for 261 calories and a small chicken noodle soup for about 300 calories. I had a tea to drink.
For being in a restaurant I did a lot better than I was expecting. Usually I have trouble focusing but I tried had and was able to had a couple mindful bites.
Today's Quote: "I do not believe in a fate that falls on men however they act; but I do believe in a fate that falls on them unless they act. "
The 23rd was all about decisions. We drive 9 hours (4.5 there and back) to see a school I am thinking of attending. I find out in one week whether or not I got in to that or any of the schools I applied to. I decided to see the school because I originally had my heart set on another school. My first degree I was dead set on attending one school but a chance event made me fall in love with another school. Although I did not fall in love with the school that I wanted to check out, I wasn't sure that I wanted to attend the other school over this school. So anyway we checked it out and I'm glad we did because now I want to attend it instead of my original choice. A HUGE choice for me was at lunch time. Usually I would just order whatever I felt like. My TOM had started, I was extremely bloated, was nauseated and didn't really want to eat, and had severe cramps. When I saw on the Applebees menu that they had 6 new dishes under 550 calories I checked them out. At first I was debating about what I should do. I finally listened to the voices in my head and acted. For the first time I felt like I has control of my eating at a restaurant. I didn't give in, I took action and make a healthy choice. We are given choices daily and instead of just letting them pass us by we must act in our best interest.
