Day 12 SURVIVED!!

I rock. I really do. Is that vain? I don't care. I'm so stoked.

I've just gotten back from dinner out. And, I'm proud to announce, I'm still OP. Yup!! ME!!!
Did you know (west coasters) that every White Spot location has a binder that has the nutritional value of every one of their dishes? All you have to do is ask and they will bring it out to you. Plus they gave me a printout of the Taste of Tuscany dishes that are their signature menu right now. How cool is that??

I had gone online and figured what I thought would be a healthy choice. When I got to the restaurant and got the printout, I was pleasantly suprised to find I was really close to what I had thought.

I had the Tuscany Shrimp Salad. It is a bed of greens, with shrimp, red grapes, sunflower and pumpkin seeds, unsweetened dried cranberries, and a vinegrette dressing. I got the dressing and the seeds on the side. I used half of each. And my salad was utterly delightful. And it was a reasonable amount of calories. I drank green tea and water. And I remained within my caloric budget for the day!!

I ROCK!!!

Great job! You were able to navigate the tricky task of eating out, staying OP and still enjoying what you chose to eat. You DO rock!
