There, I said it. I'm sick of how everyone's go to idea of something to do is going out to eat. Seriously, can't you come up with something better to do with friends than paying a ton of money to eat a greasy and carby meal?
Today isn't neccesarily related to that, but we're going out for lunch today. We got some new co-ops for the fall so this actually makes sense to take them out for lunch and meet them. Problem is, we're going to a BBQ buffet that everyone really likes cause it is indeed very good. Translation: Fat and Carbs.
I've eaten there before and the healthiest thing in their line is southern style green beans, which takes green beans and smothers them is oil and butter and onions. I can lose some carbs by just eating pulled pork off my plate rather than a massive white bun, but it is covered in the most sugary and greasy barbeque sauce I have ever seen (also one of the best tasting.) Even their baked beans have bacon grease and extra maple syrup and brown sugar in them. Plus I'll probably catch some looks for not grabbing some bannana 'nilla pudding when it comes around.
I estimate tracked it all before hand, and even being as careful as I can, there's no way I'm going to get out of this under 700 calories, which wouldn't be horrible but the protein is going to be low. And my scale is being a jerk and shows I'm up a pound since Monday rather than down one like I was hoping. I am under where my body's natural weight wants to be so these last 5 pounds to make weight are being very stubborn. If I can't lose these it looks like I'll have to make a little cut the week before September 15th, which will be made harder as my parents are coming down that weekend, and our normal catch up method is, what else?
