I'm happy to report a loss today. I'm sad that it was only half a pound, actually .6 of a pound, but still it is a loss. I wasn't expecting much since I normally have a big loss followed by a small gain or no loss. Maybe the bike riding kept me from having a gain this week.
This weekend is going to be challenging for me though. I'm going on a ladies retreat to Orange Beach, Alabama this weekend. The ladies have teamed up to prepare meals for the weekend and we are going to go out to lunch on Saturday at Lambert's Cafe, Home of the Throwed Rolls. I'm planning on ordering the grilled chicken, because how can I go wrong with chicken right? HA! That is what I thought when I ordered the grilled chicken at supper tonight at Vera's Seafood Restaurant in Slidell, LA. The menu said that it was grilled chicken breast with BBQ sauce, mushrooms and topped with cheese. What it was though was a perfectly healthy chicken breast swimming in grease. Don't get me wrong, it was delish! But I don't know why they had to ruin a perfectly good chicken breast with grease. What is funny is that when I ordered the vegetables that go on the side, I specifically asked if they were prepared with oil or steamed. I also ordered my salad dressing on the side. I just assumed that a grilled chicken breast would be a low fat choice.
I will ask the wait person at Lambert's before I order how the chicken breast is cooked and request that they use a minimal amount of oil in cooking. I hate doing this. I hate to feel like I'm being high maintenance or picky, but I need to know that I'm doing the best for my body and I love catching those "Throwed Rolls", so I need to save some points for one of those. How do you handle eating out? Do you feel like you are giving the wait staff the fifth degree?
Where are my Biggest Loser fans? I absolutely love this show!!! Sadly, I don't love exercise enough to workout until I puke. Do you find it inspirational or frustrating knowing that what they are living is not real life?
