Eating out!

Wednesday, January 16, 2013

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!

    My son took me to HuHot and I think I did real well with the choices. It was really easy to pick out things that would be good to eat. The hard part was picking the sauces and not knowing what they tasted like. All in all, I enjoyed the place and will probably go back when I'm in a town that has one.
