Day 74 - Eating out

I guess you can say I failed the eating out test (if there is one). Today when Clyde picked me up from work, he said he wanted to go out to eat. Well, since Applebee's has the Weight Watcher's menu, and since we thought that kids eat free, we decided to go there. I can't remember the last time we went out to eat. I think it was back in May/June when we got our stimulus check. We just don't have the money, and even if we did I still don't think it's worth it. But since we made a lot of money on eBay this weekend, and since I guess Clyde was feeling generous, I agreed.

Well, we got there and nothing on the WW menu looked good to me. I'd already tried a couple of the entrees in the past, and I didn't like them, so I decided to go with something I'd been wanting. So, I ordered a riblet basket (hey, I used to get the whole platter). The fries were good, but the riblets tasted terrible so I didn't eat them all. But I wasn't mad about it, because this is a treat, right? It's not like I eat like this all the time, or even have the opportunity to. What was a splurge was the dessert I shared with Clyde. But it was GOOD!

I'm going to Applebees.com to see if I can figure out how bad I did. I had 22 points left for the day, and I just did 53 minutes on the elliptical, so I probably won't have to dip too far into my WAP's. Oh, and after dinner I WALKED to Wal-mart and had Clyde meet me over there. It was such a pleasant evening weather-wise. But like I said, I'm not mad or upset. It was a treat, and this is a lifestyle. I promised myself in the beginning that I wouldn't be deprived, because the minute I feel deprived I know I won't be able to stick with it. Deprivation = diet, and I'm NOT on a DIET!
