HYC Check In

I have so much to say - and not enough time or determination to sit down and write it out! I was pleased to see a loss of 1.4 to 222.6 this week - yahoo!

My exercise has been wonky - my husband had to leave town, and now I feel guilty about being at the gym, when my dog is at home pining away for his favorite person in the whole world, his daddy - for I am a poor substitute. So we're taking lots of walks, good for him, and good for me. But my heart rate is not getting where it should be.

Mr. Black will be gone for 3 weeks (wah!), and it is not so much fun for me - more on that later. Let's focus on my NSV. I met a friend for dinner and a movie and we ended up at The Cheesecake Factory. I wanted to have a cheeseburger and fries. With bacon, probably. I ordered the grilled eggplant, roasted red pepper and mozzarella sandwich, with a salad. And it was lovely. I had one french fry off my friend's plate - and was surprised that they weren't that great. I always build up foods to where I am yearning for them then discover I wonder what the heck all the fuss was about! We shared a slice of cheesecake, and did not even finish it. Good job, Sara! Entering my meals into The Daily Plate before I eat them is really helping me stay on course. Now to get my exercise up - and keep the calories down.

Excellent progress! I think walking the dog is good exercise, but I understand the guilt :D

WTG! on the Cheesecake Factory. I can never resist the Shrimp Scampi there :(

Wow that is fantastic! cheesecake factory is one of THE hardest places for me to go and walk away feeling good about what I ate. you accomplished it! that is so awesome. congrats on your loss! and hopefully your hubby will be home soon - I know that can be rough. when I was away at school I wouldnt see my fiance for weeks at a time and it was so hard! but absence does make the heart grow fonder and you will have a wonderful reunion when hes back home.

Wow that was some great discipline you had at the restaurant!! I am usually so bad with eating out that I tend to regret it the moment I sit down at the table and open the menu -- I want to eat fattening foods or otherwise I feel deprived, or not having enough "fun."
