Lost weekend

Whoa this weekend got away from me. And I did get a little carried away. A little too much ice cream and french bread with nutella. Thankfully both things are out of the house now 😉

I will update more on this later, let’s just move on to the new week, shall we?

Okay, I’m back.

So, Saturday I ended up having lunch a lot later than I expected, so I had another snack beforehand – another piece of french bread with cinnamon raisin PB and a side salad to get some veggies in.

A friend and I had late lunch at Jason’s Deli, where I just got a cup of the chicken chili and a fruit cup (sorry no pic). Their fruit is the best and the dip they serve it with, yum-o! However, they also have free soft serve, so I had a cup of that too (90 calories).

When I got home from shopping, I went to dinner with my husband at Pig City BBQ, which I usually like but for some reason it just didn’t impress me that day. I ordered the grilled chicken sandwich, seasonal vegetables and baked apples. The apples were just mushy and gross (so I did NOT eat them) and I wasn’t impressed at the amount of veggies I got. But the sandwich was pretty good.

However, I think my feelings of disappointment about the meal (and my tiredness from the race that morning) carried over because when I got home, I drowned my sorrows in some ice cream and the rest of the french bread with apple butter and Nutella. But at least it’s gone now!


Sunday started off good, I got up before breakfast and did a 30-minute walk around my neighborhood. It was awesome, I loved the stillness of the morning before everyone else gets up. For breakfast, I had oats (made with milk) with apple butter, almonds, and a sliced apple. Then I made myself my very own iced ‘mocha’ with decaf coffee and chocolate soymilk.

At church, I always get hungry before lunch, so I had a few dried plums and a Kashi bar to hold me over. We ended up going out to lunch with some friends, which I wasn’t too thrilled about because I had already eaten out so much that weekend, but I really wanted the company so I gave in.

We went to O’Charley’s and I ordered the new “Bistro Chicken” which tasted pretty good but even for someone who loves garlic it was a little much. And I shouldn’t have eaten the potatoes because they didn’t sit well with me. But I put it behind me and vowed not to eat again until dinnertime. But, when I went to my parent’s house to do some laundry, I ended up eating 2 cups of Apple Cinnamon Cheerios for a snack (280 cals, eek!). I also made the mistake of looking up the Bistro chicken nutritional info online (950 cals for the whole dish — I ate most of the chicken except for 2 bites, but only about half of the potatoes, and all of the salad).

Dinner was at the in-laws and I was all prepared to eat pizza, but when we arrived, there was lasagna with garlic bread (agh, more garlic). But I ate it anyway and enjoyed that company as well. I had a small serving of lasagna (like 1/2 cup maybe) and one slice of the garlic bread loaf.

When we got home, I felt hungry but also like I had completely messed up the entire day, so I drank the rest of my chocolate soymilk (about 1/2 cup) and finished off my ice cream (about a cup). I don’t know why I let the day get to me, but it’s just an old habit that will die hard I’m sure.

I feel better now and have gotten focused again but I do have these little setbacks from time to time. It’s best to just let them go and move on. But they do happen, even to someone like me who has been eating healthy for so long, we’re only human after all 😉
