Why is my kind of fun so expensive calorie-wise?
Sunday, November 14, 2010
So Saturday night tends to be date night with my husband. We are lovers of nice restaurants.. and this is a big part of us, and who we are. This does not have to change, we have done it healthily before and we can again.
Last night I tried... I really did- until the cosmos...
I ordred the 60z filet mignon-- next time I will say, "please, no gorganzola sauce"
I had steamed veggies and an ice cream scoop of mashed potatoes- both of which I needed to account for calories of butter when I tracked it.
I had two glasses of scrumptious red wine..
I did okay-- until we had an hour before the movie started.. and we sat at the bar at Applebee's to have a cocktail... I ordred a Cosmopolitain... and it was YUMMY-- but it also is about 250 calories for a 4 oz serving.
Next time- instead of extra drinks we should walk the parking lot or something...
So I know what I should do next time- and must if this is going to be our "thing" on Saturday night.
Over all-- I went over my calories by 450 (wine and cosmo) and over my daily fat by 6 grams. Everything else I kept in range. I did compensate during the day and kept both breakfast and lunch to about 350 calories... SO I AM THINKING AND PLANNING instead of going all willy nilly with out a care (like I have been for the last year or so).
I am not upset with this, as this is my first week- and one I have to pay attention to so I can analyze how I did and how to better do it next time.
AND I will be posting my first fitness minutes today .... and that is HUGE!!
Tomorrow morning is our first weigh in- since our official weigh ins last week. I will be happy to stay the same as I really spent this week tracking what I do-- and then making decisions as to do it better next time (though I did not have alot of those moments)... so really I would be much happier with a lose of any sort- as would my team!!
