Sunday is a Lazy day

Sunday, January 20, 2013

I have every other Sunday off, and I have declared it "lazy Sunday".

I watch TV and sit on the couch and pretty much do nothing. Well, I do something because I am incapable of doing nothing. I usually do laundry and some cleaning.

Last night, my boyfriend and I went to dinner and the movies. We went to Chili's to eat. I am surprised at how "bad" their food actually is. They do have lighter options on their menu ( I chose the Margarita Chicken) but you have to chose VERY carefully! We did the 2/$20 which includes an appetizer. I didn't eat any, but he got the 1/2 order of Texas Cheese Fries. I looked up the nutritional info just because... 1240 calories just for a 1/2 order! He ate them all. Oddly, the thing I was tempted by the most wasn't the fries, cheese or bacon. It was the slices of jalapeņo peppers. My meal, had I ate the entire thing would have been 650 calories. I ate a little under 1/2 of the dinner and will be eating the other half tonight for dinner. My boyfriend got the Bacon Ranch Chicken Quesadilla which was 1450. I shudder to think! Post op, between his appetizer and meal he consumed more calories than I do in 3 days!

We went to see Zero Dark Thirty... I wasn't that impressed. It was long, and for the most part boring. I think it is a good story, but I think it would have worked better as a documentary.

I have the week off work and am looking forward to going to the gym and doing a whole lot of nothing

    We ate out most of the weekend & I hated it. So frustrating trying to find what I want and looking at the menu & thinking I could have done so much more with those ingredients at home. Glad you chose wisely and I can certainly identify with watching your BF eat those huge calorie laden meals. It makes my tummy hurt to just watch my sons eat sometimes. I've never been a huge Chili's fan. It's probably been at least 10 years since I've eaten there.

    You survived the monster sizes of the restaurant fare, and I'm proud of you!

    I love days where I can just lay around and do nothing. I am in school right now though, so I usually end up feeling guilty for not doing things I should have been doing. My boyfriend and I went to Chili's once a while back, before I started eating better. He had some kind of burger with bacon on it, and a few months later I saw it on one of those "Worst Restaurant Meals" list. You have to be so careful when eating out...calories and portion sizes are out of control!
