Don't get me wrong. I don't have a ton of weight to lose and I'm not going to go crazy. But I feel like this diet and exercise plan is something I could sustain for a while to get my body back in check. For me this isn't just about the way I look. Yes, that is a major driving factor. But I also want to actually be healthy. I want to actually be in shape so I can do active things like hiking or skiing. There will be days where I have something junky or that extra glass of wine, of course. For now I am taking it a round at a time. We are finishing day 10 of our first round of the 21 day fix and we have been successful thus far with a few cheats :)
Tonight we went out to dinner with my family. I tried to be good, and in a sense I was. This restaurant has the most amazing wood fired pizzas. I did NOT get pizza. That was so hard. I also did not have wine. Instead I ordered Mediterranean Lamb Chops and my hubs got a filet. Both were so good! Even thought this was a cheat, I still think we made the healthy choice by not getting pizza and totally passing on the fresh italian bread that was passed around the table.
Here's what we ate today:
- 2 hard boiled eggs
- an apple
- burrito bowl with lettuce, pico de gallo, chicken, cheese and plain greek yogurt
- strawberries and steel cut oats
- vanilla mocha shakeology
- Lamb Chops/Filet with mashed potatoes and mixed veggies(I did not eat all of my potatoes)
Even though we cheated, I keep reminding myself that we did make a healthier choice than we could have and that's an accomplishment for us. Tomorrow is a new day, we have no plans to eat out and I know we will do better. We will be eating only things I have made or prepared. Our planned cheat day is coming up and that a big family dinner on Friday and a fabulous Italian restaurant we have been dying to try!
How do you eat out on the 21 Day Fix? For this newbie here that's a work in progress and I'm still figuring it out.
