Outback Success!

Woo-hoo! My first time eating out at a sit-down restaurant since I started my diet and I did fabulously. Strange that I haven’t eaten out before now. I guess I really don’t have much of a social life :) Notably, this was also the first time I actually ate all the food I ordered at the time I ordered it. No leftovers and no doggy bags. No doubt this is because we skipped the bread and I went for the 9oz steak cut when I previously would have gone for the 12oz. I also had a great salad with blue cheese vinaigrette dressing (Note to self: must buy this dressing. Yummy.) and a side dish of steamed vegetables. Honestly, I wasn’t enthusiastic about ordering the vegetables as I would have much rather preferred the fries or fried mushrooms, but the veggies were better for me and blah, blah, blah I didn’t really mind that much.

Also, I fit in the booth with at least 3 inches to spare :) It truly is the small things in life. Pun sort of intended.

Oh, I can SO relate with the booth thing. I just discovered your blog, so forgive me for being 3 years late in commmenting. I am at the point where most booths are too tight for me, and I live in fear of new restaurants. Oh, and armchairs are the devil.

I went to Longhorn with my boyfriend the other night. We both are losing weight (he is 6ft and 350lbs, i’m 5’5″ and around 300). He ordered a huge steak, loaded mac ‘n cheese and a sweet potato with sugar and butter. I ordered grilled chicken with a sweet potato w/o the sugary buttery goodness, and mixed veggies. By the end of the meal, he was kicking himself for eating such foolishness and all I could do was smile to myself. Ha. I won. ;)

….. Not that it’s a competition (really, it is) or that I am happy he made bad choices. I felt bad for him, but really, I could only encourage healthy choices so much.

Humans can sleep for days when living alone underground, experiments show - ScienceAlert
This is probably a sign that I've got problems, but the idea of sleeping for 30 hours sounds really appealing.

Justin Bieber chastised audience for clapping on the offbeat: The biggest challenge facing musicians at shows is audiences with bad rhythm.
I'm linking to this because of the video of Harry Connick Jr. at the bottom, who manages to throw in an extra beat in the middle of a song to get people to start clapping on the offbeat without them even realizing. Mad skillz!
