My biggest problem with going out to eat, is that I have gotten in a bad habit of feeling like it's a "free pass" to eat whatever I want, just because I am at a restaurant. If I made a burrito at home, I wouldn't stuff it with beans cook in lard, a pound of ground beef, deep fry it, cover it in shredded cheese and then top it off with a latel of queso...so why do I feel that it is ok to eat a lard-filled, deep-fried, queso-soaked burrito at a restaurant? From now on, it is NOT ok! There are plenty of healthier choices that I can make when I go out to eat...so I'm going to start making those better choices tonight.
I am going to try to keep my calorie intake low throughout the day so I can give myself a little room tonight. Even though I'm going to make healthier choices, I know that anything at a restaurant is going to be higher in calories than meals that I cook at home - plus, I may want to spend some calories on a margarita or maybe a Bud Light Lime ;)
To start my day off, I've had a bowl of oatmeal and then I just had a little snack of 1/2 of a small bag of pretzels with a Laughing Cow cheese wedge. So far, so good. Still drinking my water too!
