And after a long, blizzard filled weekend, Anthony left to head back to NJ while I suffer this cold Sunday all alone. Anthony was kind enough to visit me this weekend and spend time with me. He put up with my anxiety-ridden gym breakdowns and constant 2-3 hour meals. He didn’t even laugh each time I brought my own food to the restaurants we went too! He’s a keeper
Yesterday after I blogged, I ATTEMPTED to leave my house but my car was entirely stuck in the snow. I called my boss to tell him I would be late and he said he already had nine call offs ha! Anthony knows how independent I am so although I declined his offer to drive me to work, he did manage to create a path for me (which didn’t allow my car to drive anyways and actually got his four wheel drive car stuck )
After several attempts, rolls, sighs, and curse words….we made it out of the driveway. Western PA probably only got about 6 inches compared to my family in NJ who is still trying to shovel their way out! 22 inches jeeze!
I made it into work and since no one wanted to shop at 7AM, it was a fairly easy breezy day for me. After I got off work I headed to the gym to kill some legs and abs and then back to my house where Anthony was waiting so we could grab dinner/coffee.
Tip while dieting for a competition: BRING YOUR MEALS! You can easily eat out, but BRING your meals with you and aim for places that have salad bars!! Anthony and I went to Ruby Tuesdays and I got their salad bar option + my meal of chicken, broccoli, and sweet potatoes. I didn’t feel left out watching him eat, and he didn’t feel weird since I ended up ordering things. It’s tough, but there are ways around eating and actually managing a social life.
Today’s Sunday events are the typical Sunday’s in my apartment: work, gym (bis, tris, back and 30 minute cardio), and now enjoying a cup of coffee under my heated blanket.
How do you all stay on track when eating out?
