Darn. I have done so well all week, not eating out at all since last Thursday except for Sunday lunch with some friends. Tonight, my granddaughter was talking about enchiladas for dinner (hers were going to be homemade) and I thought that sounded good, so I stopped at a Mexican restaurant for dinner. I don't feel badly about it--it was a purposeful decision, not an impulsive giving in to temptation, and I ordered a small portion and carefully didn't eat all of that, but darn. When I entered it all in my tracker....over 3000 calories in that one meal!! I would be scared to find out how many are in the meal I would normally have ordered if I wasn't being careful. Oh, well. I still don't feel badly about it, but next time I am going to try to do some tracking BEFORE I hit the restaurant--and that isn't going to be soon!
