Day 44

Tonight we had plans for a family dinner over at Outback Steakhouse…a little stressful, but it wasn’t the first time I needed to go out to a restaurant since I started the program.  Luckily, they actually have some “healthy” options on their menu!  I ordered a small salad with balsamic vinegar to start and for my entree…the “Simply Grilled Mahi” which comes with fresh mixed vegetables…and then, I ADDED an extra side of grilled asparagus!

I wish I took a picture of my meal, but it completely slipped my mind.  I can say, it all looked good…the salad and veggies were nice and simple, there was a good crunch on the mahi, and the asparagus had a nice char from the grill!  Everything even tasted good, however I did notice it was a little bit greasier than what I am used to and there was definitely A LOT of salt!!   I did still enjoy it, especially the part of feeling like a regular person who orders from the ACTUAL meal section of the menu!  I used to get the SAME THING every time I went out…a large salad with dressing on the side…who knew that actually EATING an entree could be the healthier option!  :)

I wish I could say the rest of my night went just as smoothly as the experience of dinner, however my stomach started flipping IMMEDIATELY upon getting home!  I think I was proven to be correct about the extra grease in the food!  My body was definitely not used to it and quickly had to figure out a way to adjust!  :)
