This is my first attempt at a blog..
Had a nice Sunday, spent the day shopping with the hubby & kids & then went out to dinner. The kids really wanted to go to Texas Roadhouse so thats what we did.
I figured I had such a great week and really did a good job monitoring my intake & exercising that I deserved a "pat on the back". I ordered the Smokehouse Burger with fries & a water. While waiting for my food I had a few of the hot buns with cinnamon butter .
Funny thing is once I got my food I could only eat 1/2 of my burger & fries and I was full! I brought the rest home but I have no desire to finish it. I gave it to my husband to finish off.
Since this has been one of my fave TRH menu items I thought I would have really enjoyed it but to he honest it was kind of a let down. I felt over full & bogged down. I went over my calories for the day...While I am not happy with this I also think it has a good side to it too! I came to the realization that I don't want to eat like that anymore.. I don't want to feel so full that I don't want to finish my shopping or errands. I am not missing anything by the changes I have been making the last month.
So while it probably wasnt the best decision I made all week I do believe there was a positive side to it and a lesson was learned!
I think I am going to go for a short run later once it cools off just to ease my mind over the extra calories even though today is my "rest" day.
Now back on track for another awesome week and hopefully another two lbs dropped!
