I'm having too much fun this weekend to track my food. My wife and I are celebrating our 10th anniversary and we've been running all over today. I'm pretty proud of ourselves though, we ate out for lunch and dinner and for lunch we shared a Seafood molcajete (fish, shrimp, scallions, zucchini, nopales catcus, and more in a traditional cast iron molcajete). Even then we had maybe half the basket of free chips and half the molcajete and now have the other half for when we return Sunday.
We ate dinner at my favorite restaurant, The Barn (named as such because, holy crap, it's actually in a barn
) It's known for it's extensive beer list, and while I did knock back a couple I kept my entree carb free so my blood sugar shouldn't get all wacky on me. I had Mediterranean Chicken (grilled chicken breast, kalamata olives, feta cheese, spinach, and tomatoes) btw which was the bomb and definitely something I think I can pull off at home. Also for any beer connoisseurs out there, I highly recommend the New Holland Brewery Dragon's Milk, but not so much Furthermore Brewery's Fatty Boombalatty. The former is a full body dark roasted beer that went down real nice with the chicken. The latter will only pique the interest of those looking for the bitterness of an IPA. I myself am not big on IPA's or any heavy hopped beer, mostly because I get wicked heartburn from it.
All the food talk is well and good, but I am running into a bit of a problem, because these restaurants are small buisnesses, it's not like they have nutrition info readily available, so I have no idea exactly how much of what I ate. I suppose I shouldn't worry so much but I do have a tendancy to put weight back on when I let up for even a day. I'm not looking forward to stepping on the scale Monday morning. I'm hoping to burn off all these calories when me and the missus go hiking in Wisconsin's Devil's Lake State Park. Assuming we don't kill ourselves on the bluffs, it should be a pretty strenuous hike. Hopefully I should have pics of it all tomorrow.
Good night to all my fellow Sparkers
EDIT: OK, I felt guilty about not tracking at all and kind of half assed it. Final Verdict: I probably went over on calories, but it wasn't from too many carbs or even fat surprisingly, I ate too much protein....that can't be too bad right? Obviously something you don't want to do on a daily basis but it could be worse
