The Chickenburger

Yesterday was still a good day, but lunch ended up being a tiny cheeseburger, some fries and a small vanilla shake at The Chickenburger instead of the spinach salad. I had wanted to take Mom there, as it's just one of those places you should visit when in Halifax...and so we did. :)

DBF and I did go for a walk last night though, plus I eliminated a few snacks to help even things out. All in all, I'm pleased with the day.

Today I have a stupid work teleconference to prepare for (yes, you've been reading that a lot here...the new bosses are big on these), plus I have a chiro appointment this afternoon, so no gym for me. Hopefully we'll be able to get another walk in tonight though.

Today's menu....

- blueberry bran muffin, coffee, fresh canteloupe & strawberries
- lunch will be that spinach salad & pita with hummus from yesterday
- some sort of afternoon snack: All Bran bar maybe
- dinner is tacos! hard shells, extra lean beef, veggies, lotsa salsa, smidge of cheddar & light sour cream, small glass of skim milk
- after dinner maybe some yogurt or grapes or a couple of Lifestyle cookies or something

Oh, and just a minor note: on Monday night DBF went to the store for milk and asked if we wanted anything....I actually started out asking for Dairy Queen but he said he didn't want any so I decided not to either. Mom got a McFlurry anyway, and it didn't even phase me! Woooo! Pin It

Woohoo on avoiding the ice cream. That could have been bad!

It's such a great time of year for evening walks. I love Fall! Scott and I have been out for walks everynight and it's so nice to just walk, take in the gorgeous weather, talk and unwind after a long day. Guess we should enjoy it before the white stuff comes!

See how easily we can be swayed! It was like the other night when I went for yet another bowl of homemade chicken soup and he was like "are ya sure?" and it made me think twice!

Oh the chickenburger - it's been years! I keep telling my dad we'll go there on one of his visits.

Great job ditching the ice cream. I'm like that too, I don't want to be the only one eating Dairy Queen.....

It's funny, I've lived in NS my whole life and have never eaten at the Chicken Burger, weird huh? :)
