A Girls Lunch and Birthday Dinner Fun

Lots of fun today! I got to eat out twice today at restaurants not just fast food- which doesn’t happen very often for me so I had to think ahead and make wise dining out choices.

pre workout –  peanut butter – 2

 

*early workout due to my dentist appt later in the morning – 40 mins on the elliptical +6

 

post workout/breakfast – oatmeal & Vanilla ISO Protein shake – 5

*Had my 6 month dental cleaning appointment. I hate going to the dentist. Just sayin’. :/

I was starving before heading out to meet up with Sussan, Lexy and Claretta for lunch so I grabbed a banana to help curb those hunger pains. That’s a HUGE helpful trick to dining out – don’t show up at the restaurant starving! -0

We recently had a WW meeting on tips to Dining Out that I will post later today. 😉

One of Sussan’s favorite places to eat is Japanese Hibachi (mine too after Mexican! ;)). She invited us to lunch so we could teach her how to eat healthier at a place like this. I’m so glad cause it was a great refresher for me since I haven’t eaten there in so long!!

I love stir fry!!  and the show at these hibachi places is always fun! 😉

I had the salad with ginger dressing and a taste of the miso soup. The salad was really good and refreshing with that dressing! -3

I ordered the teriyaki chicken and veggies  – 9  Had him leave off the slab of butter for the chicken 😉 Another dining out tip! 😉

I didn’t eat the rice so I could use those points for………..

yummy sushi instead!!! I had 6 pieces of a California Roll – 6

 

Claretta, Lexy, Sussan, and myself 😉 Its always fun and awesome to eat out with people that have the same goals as you do. 😉  Thanks again Sussan – It was fun!!!!

 

afternoon snack – was needing a sweet treat and I still have a LARGE party bag of M&M’s hanging out in my pantry. I realized that 1/4 cup is 6 pts+!  ugh

 

the kids wanted to do a Birthday Heart Attack for Ty’s birthday 😉

 

Zone bar snack so I wouldn’t be starving for dinner – 5

 

met up with the family at Casa Ole’ for Ty’s birthday dinner! 😉

so happy that my hubby was feeling well enough to get out of the house for a little bit today – he’s recovering slowly but surely 😉

Ty getting sung to by the waiters

I tried something new for the first time ever there – I got the grilled tilapia with grilled veggies -5.  I wanted to keep it low in points and I’m not to crazy about their fajita salads cause they come in that big fried taco bowl that I always wanna eat! 😉  This dish came with tortilla soup and beans which I just had a couple bites of each. I had them leave off the rice. It was REALLY GOOD!!!!  I also had chips & green sauce and some queso – 8??

 

the cutie patootie birthday boy! 😉

had a small slice of birthday cookie cake -6

I could have not eaten the sushi roll, chips and the cookie today but I had extra activity points saved up so I did. That’s what I LOVE about Weight Watchers!!!!!!  😉
