Okay...I'm a little pissed. I'm really trying to work my whole low carb lifestyle thing, getting back to induction this week. This means staying at 20 carbs or under. Wellllll...I thought it was a great idea to meet up at Outback for dinner...hey...steak is a good thing! However....and a VERY 'pissed at myself' however...I didn't go prepared with the knowledge of their menu like I should have. So I happily chose the wedge salad, the fresh greenbeans, and the sauteed mushrooms. I can have the butter on the veggies, and the blue cheese dressing on the lettuce wedge kind of in moderation. And quite honestly, I just love sauteed mushrooms, and didn't predict the high carb count that I found out later they had. And yep...while I thought I was doing pretty well, and not going over my carb count too badly...little did I know the crappy truth when I got back home and went on the Outback website for the nutritional info. Who knew that these seemingly acceptable items were so laden with those damn carbs!!! So I'm not pissed at Outback...the food was good (though not a favorite place of mine), I'm totally absof***inglutely pissed at myself...for not being prepared, and not knowing in advance what I needed to know. And I sooo could have taken the time. Anyway, sorry for the questionable language here, but sometimes ya just gotta let it out!!! Now I know what I need to do...lesson learned!!!!!!! Okay...that's done...I already feel better.. :-) Now breathe Patty...and track.
