Tonight was my little brothers 18th birthday!!!
to celebrate we went out to dinner.
Eating out is HARD.
and there was cake too....but more about that later!
Here is what I ate today:
Eggs w/ ham, bacon & breakfast potatoes
Usually my breakfast are a little healthier, but we had a family breakfast today so I didn't cook for myself!
Greek Salad with chicken, cucumbers, red onions & feta cheese. SO YUMMY
My brother ordered two appetizers for our table. He ordered chicken wings and nachos...
This is a picture of one of the GIANT nachos he ordered...I let myself have 1.
On the nachos were chicken, cheese, black beans and a green/unidentified vegetable!
When we went into the restaurant at first my stomach sunk! It appeared to be a BIG country western bar that served food.
For anyone who is trying to eat healthy, bar food is NEVER good..
As I read the menu, my suspicions were confirmed.
Most of the menu consisted of burgers, quesadillas, tacos, and chicken fried things.
Luckily, they had a more expensive section that I found ribs under..
hey, my parents were paying!
So I ordered the ribs and substituted the fries and coleslaw that were supposed to come with it for asparagus (that I was surprised to see on the menu).
This is the BAD part of this post.
Being my brother's birthday, there was cake.
My boyfriend and I talked and decided that a tiny piece wouldn't kill all my progress.
It was half ice cream, half cake.
I ate all the ice cream off and left the cake.
In the past, a little cheat on my diet or eating plan would lead to a large splurge or binge fest.
But not this time.
I ate the chunk of ice cream, then threw the rest of the cake down the drain, and then chugged a big glass of water.
Aren't you proud??
