Today was my first time eating out since I've been on my diet plan. It was interesting for sure! The place we went to wasn't super health conscience! Lol! I ended up ordering a charbroiled chicken breast (although I'm sure it was cooked in butter....shoot.) and green beans (also buttered and baconed, lol!) and a plain baked potato. I asked the waitress for a to-go box right away and went ahead and put away most of the food I wouldn't eat. I ate half the chicken, only about 1/4 c. of the beans and a third of the potato with only salt and pepper. Took the rest home...oh and ordered water! So I was successful! Going out tomorrow night and I plan to do just as well! Didn't put the protein powder into my oatmeal this morning and it was so much better! I'm going to have to up my calories a bit, I'm watching it too much. I shouldn't be under 1500, I need to be closer to 1700 but it's alot of food to eat when you are eating this way! The work out went great - I was huffing and puffing through it, again, did about 80 % and I keep pushing to be better. But it's only my 3rd day so I'm not being too hard on myself. But I find that I'm SO tired by like 9pm now! Ready for bed....another day tomorrow!!! This keeping track of food and eating right wears me out! Lol!
