food find: arnold's double fiber bread
my roommate bought this and i had a slice yesterday for breakfast with some sugar free jelly. 1 slice of thick grainy bread = 1 point! it was really good. i'm going to have to stop "borrowing" it from her and buy some :)
tommorow is my birthday and i am sad to say i did not make my goal of 130...unless 4 pounds fall off between now and then. oh well, i tried and i did run for 30 minutes straight which is a huge victory for me!!
last night i went to dinner for my boyfriend's birthday, we're two days apart. AWWW. i love him so much. anyway, went to cheesecake factory with his family. it was my first time there but i tried to do a little research before i went and found that one piece of their cheesecake is 19-23 points! yikes. it's a good thing i don't really like cheesecake. i was happy to see in their HUGE menu that they had a "weight management" section...haha. i heard that the chicken oriental salad or whatever it is called is like 1000 calories so i stayed away from that. i ordered:
the cheesecake factory's weight management spicy chicken salad
grilled chicken with spices on the outside
pico de gallo
(came with rice but i said no rice)
spicy balsamic dressing on the side
grilled jalapeno peppers
i'm guessing it was maybe 5 points for the whole thing? i used very little dressing but i think the peppers were cooked in butter or oil? it was good, i wouldnt go there for it but it was a healthy option. i did try my boyfriends miso salmon and OH MY GOODNESS it was maybe the best salmon i've ever had. it was served over white rice with a thick creamy miso sauce. i had a little bit of sauce on my bite (factored that into my 5 points).
it was funny though, i tried to order all quietly and when they brought my food the server says "who had the WEIGHT MANAGEMENT CHICKEN SALAD?" haha...my boyfriend's sister asked me why i'm even dieting. i love hearing that but i still want to lose 10 lbs :) hopefully by this summer. i seem to lose weight slowly....so that is a better goal right? haha
today starts week 7 of couch potato. i can't believe i've been doing it for almost 2 months! it will be my last workout of the week, i am doing NOTHING tommorow (took the day off) and eating WHATEVER i want. well, in moderation of course.
we're going to benihana's for our joint birthday dinner tommorow, i can't wait! i'm getting a drink out of one of these mugs, maybe they will put red wine in it for me? i hope they make the rice into the shape of a heart :) next week for valentine's day we're going to the melting pot. YIKES! oh well, i'll figure that out next week.
anna nicole smith died? that is so odd, i wonder what happened?
