First time eating out. (twice in one day)

So yesterday I hit one of my first milestones.  Kilo LOVES to eat out.  Since he works from home on Fridays, and isn’t fed a free gourmet meal at work, we usually go out to eat together before the kids get out of school.  So we went out to eat at a restaurant for the first time since I started my pre-surgery diet.  

We went to Kneaders and took Erlop with us (she was home from school with a fever).  For lunch I picked the turkey bacon avocado sandwich and split it in half with Erlop.  Once I had my half sandwich, I took it all off the bread and made it into a little salad.  All protein and veggie.  Only a tiny bit of the dressing stayed on the meat instead of the bread so not even much dressing.   The avocado mixed in made it just perfectly moist without the mayo.  It was amazing!  I will have to do that again.

Then we had planned to meet with some of my family and go see Catching Fire.  We also took Mellissa since she is obsessed with those books.  At about 2pm I got a call from my mom that my sister had finished her last class for her degree.  So she is all done with her Bachelor Degree.  Mom and Dad wanted to do a celebration dinner at Wingers before the movie.   Since we were already driving 30 min for the movie we decided to join them for dinner also.  

When looking at the menu I decided on the loaded chicken.  Chicken breasts, sautéed onions and peppers, melted cheese, and bacon.  It came with a side of mashed potatoes, and cooked squashes.  I arranged before hand to give the potatoes to Kilo and Mellissa who where sharing a large order of wings.  When the food arrived all items left on the plate were diet friendly.  So I divided the meal in half and made a decision on how much I planned to eat.  I stuck exactly to what I wanted.  I even turned down the popcorn on the table  (In fact I moved it out of my line of sight so I wasn’t tempted).  I didn’t even sample anyone else’s food.  I was so proud of myself.  I made awesome choices and still had great food. 

Catching Fire was AMAZING.  I am so upset we have to wait so long for the next one.  It was one of the best book to movie that I have seen in a really long time.  It was so true to the book.

Now for Saturday tasks, Mellissa and I are going to go finish painting some furniture for her.  I will have to post some pictures when we are done.
