I Survived Olive Garden...

Tuesday, May 08, 2012

Ok, so today is Day 6 of some serious dieting for me. I've got my eye on my step sons graduation the end of this month and my husbands birthday. I won't be at goal but I can be much better.

We took my mother in law out for an early mothers day dinner and I hoped we were not doing Olive Garden but that was the choice. I had some help from a friend that looked at the menu and came up with a plan ahead of time of what I'd eat. I was full when I left and feel great knowing I'm STILL moving in the direction of my goals. Just wanted to share, incase you have a place you know you are going that seems impossible to stay on plan... to let you know...with planning and can be done!

Who is with me? No more excuses... What do we want most?

  I think the planning is the hardest part of eating right. When we didn't care about health, it was never anything we had to think about. If we an conquer this, we can conquer anything.

    Ironic, I went to OG last night for a pre celebration of my daughters graduation from college this weekend with a couple of her roomates. I had the salad, LOVE their salad and it didn't taste good there was to much dressing on it or something. Had one bowl of soup and well I think 3 bread sticks. Oops on that part. So not on plan but could have been WAY worse!!!!

We got this girl.

    When I go out to eat I check out the web page of the restaurant & plan my meal before I go.

    Yeah it is hard to go out to eat and still have healthy choices. The worst about olive garden is the free bread sticks!!
