On to today's weigh in. I didn't expect anything really spectacular when I stepped on the scale this morning b/c Friday I had a little double Mexican fiesta. After I left school on Friday afternoon some of my classmates & I decided to go to Chuy's for a Tres Leche cake. Ok, first of all, have you ever had this?? If not, I HIGHLY recommend it. It was SO delicious, and that sucker was HUGE!!!
|Seriously, even in this picture you can't tell how big it really is.|
But, I didn't eat the whole thing, nope, I cut it in half & only ate half of that deliciousness. The total calorie count that I found online was 460 calories, so basically I had 230 calories just in that cake alone. Now that wasn't too bad, but then I also had some chips & salsa/guacamole & their creamy jalapeno dip. Again, if you've never had the creamy jalapeno dip, highly recommend it.
|This is totally what I would have been doing had I been alone in that restaurant!|
Ok I know you're thinking "Well that's not too bad Candi, don't worry about it." Well, guess what? Then about 2 hours later my husband comes home from work & he's like "What's for dinner? Why don't you call & order us some Mexican food?" Welllllll, technically I didn't really have dinner the first time, we just had some snacks after class, right? So, I proceeded to order two crunchy beef tacos & some cheese dip (of which I ate most of) & then ate again. Now I have to admit, 2 crunchy tacos still isn't that bad compared to what I would have eaten prior to starting this weight loss journey, so honestly I still didn't feel too bad.
Anyhoo, after Friday night I really tried to keep it under control yesterday & I did pretty good. I'm pretty sure I stayed under my 1700 calorie allotment, and so I got on the scale this morning & voila still at 268 lbs, which I'm totally ok with. Honestly I was happy not to see a gain.
So, for this week I'm logging no loss/no gain, but I'm ok with that. I'm living a normal life & sometimes that includes eating Mexican food twice in one day!!
How about everyone else? How did you do this week??
