This trainer we've got is tough. I like him. I like knowing I'm getting what I'm paying for. I like knowing I'm going to see some actual results faster than I would going it on my own.
I'm not really sure what my calories came in at today. We had our gym appt at 7:30pm, so we had a little over an hour to kill inbetween then and the time Billie got off work. We decided to eat dinner together at Ruby Tuesday's because they have a dish called Chicken Bella with grilled chicken and portabella mushrooms for 417 cals. Then I got to thinking. I've proved over and over that I can gain 6-7 lbs. OVERNIGHT from a restaurant meal, even if it's a healthy one. It's the sodium that gets me every time. It's what I call "fake" weight, because I know it's water and it will fall off. However, I knew it wouldn't have time to fall off by Friday morning when I weigh.
I decided to go with the salad bar instead. Billie said she didn't think a salad would provide enough carbs for the workout the trainer was going to put us through, so I had about 1 1/2 c. of pasta salad on the side. The main salad had mixed greens, spinach, a little boiled ham, a little boiled egg, 2 grape tomatoes, green bell peppers, cucumbers, red onions, fresh mushrooms, and a few pumpernickle croutons. I had a low calorie balsamic vinaigrette on the side. I saved 430 cals for my dinner before I got there. Even if I didn't hit the 1500 calorie mark exactly, I feel like I came pretty close.
I want to get back to putting a daily inspirational quote at the end of each of my posts. I'll leave you with that quote, and a pic of my dinner tonight. :)
