Fuddruckers (a burger joint for those of you guys who have never been to the best burger restaurant ever!) or Pasta Pomodoro. I decided on Pasta Pomodoro because they have an amazing soup that I love and Mike could still get a great meal. I should have just gotten a cup of the braised beef tortellini soup (281 cal.) but based on how hungry I was feeling I decided to get the bowl (562 cal). That meant I only had 380 cals left over for the party. Not a big deal, except it was an all you can eat pizza bar and I wasn't about to pay $8 for a slice of pizza. I didn't go as crazy as I could have. I only ate 2 slices of pizza and a piece of cast cake. Still that pushed me over by 200 calories :(.
Again not bad, but I am a little disappointed in myself. However because the party was at 11:00 p.m. I just skipped breakfast the next day and I came in at 300 calories under for the day. It all balances out eventually, but I'm going to work hard on sticking to my guns on this diet. 2100 calories a day is a LOT and there is no reason I should be going over. I think the best thing I can do is to keep myself out of potentially bad situations, like TGIF's $10 all you can eat appetizers. The Asian in me wants to get my money's worth, and the American in me wants more fried food!
I can do it!
