First Eating Challenge On New Diet

It’s our anniversary tonight. Will I succeed or fail with sticking to my new weight loss meal plan? (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Only 3 days into my new diet and I’m already running into my first BIG test. Today’s my 11th wedding anniversary! We made reservations for Ruth’s Chris Steak House. Actually when going low carb, Ruth’s Chris is a great restaurant. But now that I’m tracking carbs, fat and protein, figuring out what I want is a wee bit tricky.

The good news: I’ll stay on track with the petite filet, asparagus (no hollandaise sauce) and broiled tomato. I can even have wine and champagne for a toast. The problem is I want the 9 oz filet. The downside? It kills me on fat by 20g. I have no idea if that is a big deal or not.

I really want to show discipline, but a big part of me is saying, it’s your anniversary…enjoy.

Well, while I decide what to do with this dilemma, the following is for my hubby – who may have a double celebration if his new dark fantasy e-book can crack the Amazon Top 100 today (shameless plug over):

    Thanks for taking on his book. He’s worked hard on it and had really good reviews so far. Hope you enjoy it. Agree on Ruth’s Chris. We had fun last night and I decided to enjoy myself rather than worry about the meal too much. I’m back on track this morning so one little indulgence won’t kill me.

  2. Happy anniversary! Ruth’s Chris is always a good place. Gotta love steak. 🙂
    I’m excited to hear about your husband’s book! And I kind of went ahead and got it for my Kindle. I love stuff like that and it sounds like a unique read!
