How good intentions only went so far
We drove to the city after husband’s work last night hoping to clear the freezing rain that was coming towards our town and it paid off! So we got at our hotel at around 1 in the morning, went to bed and slept in until about 10ham. That was a great way to start the day. We wanted to go to a breakfast specialty restaurant. Before we got all organised and ready to go it was lunch time and there was a line up at the breakfast place so we went to outback steak house instead. I was starving and lining up for food never made much sense to me anyway.
So at least there I knew I could get meat and vegetable. I ordered a steak with more vegies instead of garlic mashed potatoes. I was so hungry waiting for it and the waiter brought a cute little brown bread for us to share. It was not part of the plan but I had some anyway. So we finally had our plate and since I didn’t mention that I couldn’t eat broccoli (Due to a health condition ) I had about 95 % broccoli and 5% carrot.loll. The steak was delicious! I ordered a brownie topped with ice-cream for daughter and sample it. I would have stole it from her but I resisted loll.
So I tough I have been pretty good and felt alright about it. Back to the hotel we went at the gym, I walked on the treadmill for 40 min. with one of the pre-set programs on it. I usually burn about 250-300 calories on the Wii and don’t sweat too much at the opposite of the treadmill that exhausted me and only burned 160. One of them must be wrong. After I joined the family in the pool for some more exercise and fun.
We went out in a fine dining Indian restaurant for dinner and it is where I went out of track. The little devil in me knocked the little angel out because we never get to eat in a nice place like this in our town. It was not the initial plan but everything changed when the garlic naan bread got there. Nothing to do with the one you can buy at a shopping center. So apart from the bread I have been pretty reasonable with the coconut rice, the mango chicken curry and tandoori. It was totally worth it!
I am still 48 calories under goal but it is just an illusion from trying to calculate food calories when I don’t really know what was in there. I always put more to be sure but usually I have a better idea.
