day nineteen

the weekend!!!

i love it....i get to relax and see friends and hang out with my husband.

and i hate it....because it's so easy to get off track!

but i really did fine.  i'm really enjoying the shakes, especially when i use my nutribullet with some ice and a scoop of peanut butter (teddie's all natural, of course).

mike and i went out to eat twice this weekend, which hasn't happened in awhile.  i had delicious salads -- one i must recommend.  the spicy thai shrimp salad from applebee's is delicious.  spicy shrimp over greens, cabbage, shredded carrots, edamame, sliced almonds, and thai peanut yummy.

one thing about going out to eat that is challenging is that there are many, many choices...most of which are choices you should not make.  either the portion is too large or it contains too many foods that are not smart choices.  luckily, i love salads.  now, don't get me wrong, i'm fully aware that you can make a salad a very unhealthy choice if you aren't careful.  but usually, i'm a fan of a simple salad with some delicious protein and some kind of vinaigrette.  i'm sure the thai peanut dressing at applebee's wasn't the healthiest dressing, but the entire salad was 390 calories, so i don't feel bad.  it was yummy.  plus, mike had double crunch fried shrimp, so i'm certain i made the better choice. 

what about you?  is it hard to make good choices when you eat at a restaurant?
