How I'm Doing So Far

Eating out

Day two of my new healthy lifestyle eating plan and I have to go out to dinner. I knew the menu was salads so figured I'd be okay and so opted not to eat before I went. Wrong! mayonnaise-infused chicken and crab salads, pasta salads, yucky bean salads. Just when i was about to panic, my mom (The BOMB!) who's a member at the club this dinner meeting was being held at said 'go into the bar, get a menu and see if there's anything you can eat'.

So i ordered grilled mahi mahi, a plain baked potato and mixed vegetables. It was delish. Figured the fat I needed was used in the grilling process. The baked potato was just fine plain. Best part is, I listened to my body and ate only the roughly 4 ounces of fish, half a potato and the cauliflower and broccoli (left the carrots because they're actually a starch). The president of the club even gave back the $ I'd paid for the salad buffet dinner when she realised I wasn't able to eat.

And double bonus - in the raffle, I won a 24-oz Tervis Tumbler. Gonna help me get even more water in.
