Hello hello Well, today turned into my “cheat day” after an indulgent afternoon and dinner. So, I have to stay on track tomorrow (Saturday is usually my cheat day). Boo.
Ben and I went out to dinner tonight in honor of our 3 year anniversary. Three years ago we had our first date It’s funny to think about how short 3 years is, but how much has changed in that time!
I knew I was getting the veggie platter before even looking at the menu = easy ordering! It had potatoes, spinach, rice, chickpeas, pumpkin and fried eggplant. Most of it was covered in yogurt sauce. Unfortunately, I’m not the biggest fan of yogurt sauce (blogger blasphemy, I know).
It was good but very greasy. Despite that (or maybe because of it) , I really enjoyed this meal! I mean, I can eat chickpeas all day. Actually, I did eat chickpeas all day. I had a salad with chickpeas and hummus for lunch and this for dinner.
I told Ben we were out of cereal this morning so I poured a bowl of chickpeas and milk for breakfast Kidding. But, that does sound like a good idea…
We also ordered an eggplant appetizer to start. This was good too, but super greasy. After I ate it all (forgot to leave some for my homies) I saw a puddle of oil. Actually, there was a puddle of oil on my other plate too.
Earlier, Ben met me at the mall. We got an Iced Mexican Mocha from the Nordstrom Cafe. It totally tasted like Mexican
Hot Cold Chocolate! And no, we cannot get it without whipped cream because Ben LOVES the stuff. But, sharing a drink with whipped is better than getting my own without.
Okay, I am off to chug some water and try and get some sleep. I ate a lot today and am trying to get back on track with a morning run and healthy eating this weekend.
I usually over eat on the weekends, so my challenge for Saturday and Sunday is to stay on plan! Wish me luck
