Day 81 - Chili's Dinner with the Family

Thursday, June 20, 2013

For my youngest son's 16th birthday, we went to Chili's for dinner. It was very late (9 pm) since Ryan had baseball games to play.

I asked my husband if we were going to do the Chicken Fajita's for 2 but he did not respond. Then I noticed that Chili's had a small section on the menu for low calorie dinners. I ordered the Mango Salsa Tilapia and my dear husband complained saying that we were getting the chicken fajita's for 2. So, I switched my meal.

We had a great time there and my husband and sons enjoyed watching the Chicago Blackhawks win. Dessert was ordered but I did not get any. I did sample my son's cheesecake and my other son's and girlfriend's chocolate chip skillet. It was good.

When I got home, I recorded all my foods and was dismayed that my fajitas was so terribly high in sodium!

Today, I feel bloated! Just for kicks, I stepped on the scale to see how much I gained and it was 2 lbs. I know it is all water weight since during the night I woke up terribly thirsty and drank a tall glass of water.

This morning I walked my 3 miles and in the beginning, it felt like a chore. It got easier after the first mile. I still feel a little bloated and I am hoping that by tomorrow I will be at my low weight again.

During my walk, I stopped at a neighbor's house and we sat on her front porch that she created into a beautiful little garden and we talked for a good hour. Her grandson is friends with my youngest. She invited me to go with her tomorrow morning to do Curves. I have done Curves once or twice years ago when it first came out but I want to do it again since I am much older and not interested in all those other gym type weights designed for 20 somethings...

Hope everyone is having an amazing day!

    It is shocking how much sodium is in foods - it isn't any wonder that so many of us struggle with high blood pressure. :( Curves sounds like a great idea. :)

    Good luck at curves.

    I has a shrimp combo platter from Applebee's and was absolutely shock when I got home and saw it has 5000mg sodium. That is just crazy!
