Tonight, Jon’s mom got us a gift card to Buffalo Wild Wings. I was definitely hungry when we got it, so I was quick to agree to BWW. When we got there, I realized where we were at and mentioned finding something that wouldn’t completely destroy my diet. It’s kinda weird saying that since I’ve never really been the girl who was on a diet. Jon pointed out that I would probably get a salad, which was true. It’s why I tend to not care where we go eat; if nothing appeals to me, there’s always a salad. You could say I had a moment of weakness when I agreed to split an order of mozzarella sticks. Technically they’re not on the no junk food challenge list, but they’re not the best choice either. I thought of getting a salad, but decided to get the spinach and artichoke chicken on flatbread instead. It was one of the few non salad options that didn’t look like it went swimming in oil before being brought out. It tasted pretty good; it did have some greasiness on top, which I tried to blot off as much as I could with a napkin. Even though I liked it, I only ate about half of it. On the way home, my stomach felt a bit oogy. Not quite to the point of wanting to throw up, but definitely enough to wish I had gotten a salad instead. So I’m wondering, it’s been less than a week since I made the decision to clean up my diet; is my body already noticing the difference and making a clear choice of what it wants? Jon is, of course, being resistant to eating healthier, despite wanting the benefits lol. Typical guy with a kid’s palate. I can tell it’s going to be an uphill battle with him, especially since he is on the road most of the time. It’ll be different after we get married and he finds a local job, I’m sure. But tonight, he also only ate about half of his food (12 piece boneless wings with Asian zing sauce) before declaring he was full; he also said his stomach didn’t feel right after dinner. So despite his taste buds’ resistance, maybe his body is already saying that it,too, has had enough with greasy foods. Guess we’ll see, huh
Today was day 3 of my no junk food challenge. Still haven’t cracked. My boyfriend, Jon, got home today. He’s my Redneck Romeo :). Anyhow we went out to eat at the Kemah Boardwalk. We were gonna go to Joe’s Crabshack, but it had been replaced by a Bubba Gumps. So disappointed, that was my favorite Joe’s and favorite place at the boardwalk. So we went to the Flying Dutchman instead. I had a water and the broiled seafood platter. It was good! I normally get sweet tea but since they didn’t have any so I got water instead. I was tempted to get the popcorn shrimp since I love it…but resisted :) I also resisted the bread and butter. I love bread and butter. I’m kind of a carbaholic. Since I didn’t fill up on bread,(we did split a shrimp appetizer) I was able to enjoy more of my entrée, which was really good. So, it’s going well, but I’m glad they didn’t bring the dessert platter around. I caught a glimpse of it and saw a slice of chocolate cake that looked like it’d be too good to pass up. It had chocogasm written all over it.
This is where I’ll do my blogging about my progress with cleaning up my diet and getting serious about working out. I’ve been half-assing it for too long now. I am by no means anywhere near being overweight, but I’m also not at my full potential.I’m not sure why I’ve been holding back, but it’s time to start pushing. I’ll still update my regular blog Random Ramblings of a Southern Momma, but this will be solely for keeping track of my progress with healthy eating and working out.
