So with a birthday party comes snacks and cake, all of which I had. Plus a mimosa. That's how our playgroup rolls.
|Bistro Shrimp Pasta (scarier than it looks!)|
I asked for their nutritional information when we asked for a table and they gave me a nice spiral bound notebook filled with most of the needed numbers. But tucked into the menu was a "SkinnyLicious" menu with menu items all under 590 calories. I guess this new menu came out in 2011 and I haven't been there since then. So I had an ahi tartar appetizer and a pasta dish for my entree. I didn't need the appetizer but again, I chocked it up to the run. Oh, and I had a "skinny" margarita too but my stomach started hurting part way through dinner so I only had a few sips of it. I probably got out of there for less than 1,000 calories, which isn't bad considering.
We had some other errands to run after dinner and I ended up bringing home a Three Muskateers bar for desert. I had that and then starting taking bites from the birthday cake we brought home from the party (for the kids to eat after dinner, which of course they forgot all about). A few bites later and I dumped all the cake down the garbage disposal. I was pretty sure I was just seeking distraction, which is no reason to eat.
All this eating and I feel like crap. The good thing is, I have 11 miles in the morning to run as fast as I can away from it all.
