Fact: Last Monday August 20 I dragged my mom and I's sorry butts to weight watchers. It is time to start again. My life has experienced major upheaval in the last week. I went down to college, decided I had made a horrible choice, and came home to explore other options.
Of course, that whole weekend, I was amazingly stressed. Beyond normal stress -- the kind of stress where you cannot eat. I barely ate a whole meal without losing it (not throwing up...). I was miserable. I really only was eating *and barely so* one meal a day. That was Wednesday 8/15 to Saturday 8/18.
So of course when I went to WW, I had lost 2.6 pounds! Of course, I completely understand that I did it the wrong way, and I was miserable the whole weekend and felt sick. Of course, the other way to look at it is as a jump start to healthy eating & dieting/exercising.
This is the eating out that I remember this week:
|Not my actual burger - it didn't have those yummy onions on top|
Tuesday night (I think): Cheeseburger, baked potato and salad from Outback. Ate everything.
Wednesday lunch: Cheesecake Factory with my family. Had from the Skinnylicious menu - Chicken Enchiladas. They came covered with red chile sauce, melted cheese, and Escabeche vegetable salad.
*I asked for the red chile sauce on the side, because um, hello. "Covered" is a good way of saying "smothered in an amount of sauce that is super unhealthy to eat". So the enchiladas were delicious, it came with three and I ate all of them. I probably should've taken some of them home, but it kept me full for the rest of the day. The EScabeche vegetable salad was really interesting. It came with cucumber/pickles - I'm frankly not sure what they were, but they were nommy - carrots and cauliflower. I nibbled at the carrots/cauliflower but I ate most of the cucumberpickles.
Friday lunch: Ate at Cafe Ima with my mom. I was really hungry. I ate fried rice, corn, salad, dumplings, egg roll halves, meatballs, stir fried sweet potato and lots of different sushi. I probably ate TOO much of everything, particularly the fried foods.
Friday dinner: Because we always eat out after cat rescue, this is why I ate out for two meals today. We went to the Silver Diner (not my favorite) and I had two chocolate chip pancakes, with scrambled eggs & two sausages. I ate the whole meal. And let me tell you, I felt crappy after. Not, oh my gosh that was such a yummy meal, I feel full and happy! No, I felt sluggish and gross. I hate eating at SD because it always makes me feel gross afterwards. And to think, I wanted to have a milkshake with all of that....
