As I was preparing for my work day, my coworker texted me and asked if I'd like to eat out for lunch. PANIC!!!!!
I wasn't sure if I should eat breakfast, and then I wasn't sure if what I should eat if I ate breakfast, because I don't go into work until Noon, three days out of five. It terrified me to have to figure out how to eat "healthy" while eating out so soon. I'm not sure I managed it correctly this time around.
The salad of course, was spectacular. Do you see all that ranch? Do you see the four strips of bacon, chopped up beneath all of that ranch? Do you see the 6 ounces of cheese sitting on that plate? I COULD I HAVE DIED if I ate all of it. But I was good- I was real good. I ate slowly, I listened to my stomach, I put my fork down frequently, and I only ate the parts that I wanted. I ended up eating two of the cheese chunks, a bite of the deviled egg, and all of the bacon. When I decided I could eat no more, there was 4 ounces of cheese and two cups of romaine lettuce still on my plate.
And then they served us an after dinner raspberry truffle. It was light and fluffy, and occurred to me that I had never had a truffle that was chocolate all the way through. This one was more cakey, if you will.
I walked home from work, and was very tempted to just eat whatever was lying around, namely mini corn dogs, and frozen pizza. We ate all the decent food. Instead, my roommate and I stopped by the locally owned grocery and picked up some green beans, and porkchops. We made Huli-Huli pork chops this evening.
No, that's not right. Vegetables shouldn't have to give up their right to be vegetables, just because some human decides to smother them in saturated delicious fat! They've become victims, not unlike those who are eating said veggies.
And then, because I just felt like I didn't have enough sugar today, I had a bowl of Reese Pieces cereal with plain soy milk. I finally got some more! I was so relieved to be using it instead, it was like a welcome home party in my mouth!
But I figure, right now I have managed to completely cut out my after work binging. One bowl of cereal does not constitute a binge. three plus a bag of popcorn and the rest of my Oreo Cakesters and some hot-dogs is more of a binge. So, I'm going to call today successful. And remember to never order a salad from that restaurant again!
