“Back in the proverbial day (when I was a personal trainer) Id often tell my clients not to even bother picking up a menu when they went out to eat.
In response to the inevitable look of perplexednessment I’d respond that if it wasnt a cheat meal/treat meal then their order was really quite simple:
grilled/steamed/poached (you get the idea. depends on the restaurant) fish/chicken/lean beef, steamed veggies (baked potato if they choose with everything on the side) and a salad.”
Josh and his friend wanted to go to Mexican. I thought of my biggest downfall (chips and salsa) and thought ok, I can make it through this! I am happy to report I did not have even 1 chip! For dinner I ordered chicken breast with rice (and it came with a mini salad). Unfortunately, I don't think the chicken or the rice was cooked using a "clean" method, but I felt it was the best I could do! I ate about half (sorry for no pic- I went right to the restaurant from the gym....yes, sexy in workout clothes haha).
As for my other meals, breakfast was the usual apple/PB with coffee (no pic).
Lunch: Blueberry Chobani and leftover stuffed potato filling with a sweet potato
Snack: No sugar added dried papaya from a bin at WFs (very yummy)
All in all- I felt I did PRETTY well today. I actually selected this week to start my challenge because I thought this would be a tough weekend eats-wise. With Josh's friend visiting, I knew they'd want to eat out. Also, on Saturday, I am headed to my sisters baby shower in CT! Hopefully I can handle all of the challenges of the weekend! How do you avoid going overboard at restaurants?
