I was very proud of my self today! Today, my husband and I had to run into town (12-15 miles away from our home) to go to one of the many doctor's appointments my husband has. After, we went out to lunch because his daughter (my step-daughter) had gotten us a gift certificate to a place called HuHot! It is a all you can eat mongolian, cook-in-font of you type restaurant. I am pleased to say that I only had one bowl full of food. And I had chicken, some noodles, mushrooms, cabbage, broccoli, and carrots. I chose ginger and garlic sauce! That was my lunch. Once it was cooked, it was only a half a plate serving. I also drank unsweetened iced tea. Still no soda! =D
Now, my husband was a glutton! I love him dearly, but seriously...the man put down three HUGE plates of food before I talked him into leaving. Which is horrible because our doctor appointment was to focus on nutrition...since he is a newly diagnosed type 2 diabetic. I don't know if hearing about all the food he is NOT supposed to eat, made him hungry??? But he sure ate a ton. I was just surprised that I was able to only eat one plate and be satisfied! Usually, I can put some food away. But I had Sparks in the back of my mind the entire time. Plus, since I have been working hard at exercising and eating right, I felt if I would have been more of a piggy....it would have defeated all the hard work! So....I guess once I have decided to do this (eat healthy and move this body) even going to an all-you-can eat buffet did not derail my hard work and motivation!
