I don’t really have a solid food plan this week. Because of this, we have eaten out the last few days which is hard on both the pocketbook and on the waistline! I am sure feeling some water retention in my hands today.
After work I made a trip into downtown to pick up some items and used that opportunity to get an iced coffee from Flying M. I also bought a large cookie (M&M Monster cookie as I am a sucker for M&Ms in cookies) and ate most of it on the drive home. Kenyon and I decided to meet at Red Robin for dinner. My plan ahead of time was to get the chicken breast, lettuce wrapped instead of a bun, and a side salad in place of the fries. It is one of my go-to choices at Red Robin. I’m not sure if it was the cookie, being tired, or what but on my drive over I considered ordering a burger instead of a chicken breast. It wouldn’t have been a plain burger either. My favorite is the Whiskey BBQ burger because I love the onion straws.
When the waitress asked if we were ready to order I wasn’t sure. I should have just ordered right away and gotten the chicken breast. She walked away to give us more time and I instantly regretted it. I knew I needed to stick to my plan and order the chicken breast. I had just eaten more than half of a giant cookie and I didn’t need to be spending extra WPPA on a burger! We flagged her down and I ordered my chicken breast and side salad. Whew. Score one for Lindsay (let’s pretend I didn’t eat more than half of a large cookie…okay?)
Having a food plan is place sure does make sticking to it at least 75% easier! I cooked up some thin pork chops that were in the freezer for my lunch at work today and tomorrow. I paired it with some frozen veggies and green beans. Tonight after work I have to go to Murphy for our last reunion planning meeting before the big events start next week.
