Friday the 13th

Small deficit because I was grazing in the evening. I am sure I had more of a deficit though because I took my bodybugg off after work but I was moving furniture and doing laundry so I was burning some calories.

Tonight I am going with Debby, Judy, Laura and Tracy to P.F. Chang's. I have never been there but have always wanted to try it. Anybody have any suggestions on what is good? I printed out the menu and the nutritional information so I will review it today and make an informed decision about what I am going to eat. I think I will allow myself one adult libation (thinking...lemon drop) but NO BEER. I do love Chinese beer though... I have been doing good with not having any beer. I will allow myself some beer on Christmas or New Year's.

My plan for the weekend is to continue settling in and to hang pictures. I am going to an Al-Anon class at S.A. for Dave at 11:00 a.m. tomorrow and then a pedicure @ 3:30 p.m. Sunday I will be spending the morning at church and then in the evening I will be having Debby and Larry over for Salmon dinner. Debby loves my salmon and I want to thank them for ALL their help with my move and everything. I recently bought a Beginning Yoga DVD that I want to check out. Hope you all have a great weekend! Until next time...


  1. What a good idea to print out the nutritional information before you leave. P.F. Changs has really good food, but Asian food can be a problem when you are trying to lose.

    Totally off the subject, but I have a design blog if you need suggestions for your new place. I'm not trying to promote my blog here. If you want to check it out, you can e-mail and I'll send you a link.

  2. I KNOW their lettuce wraps are delicious, but I have a sneaking suspicion the sodium content will be high. But that's a problem no matter what you eat at a Chinese restaurant, even a high end one like P.F. Chang's.

    Have a great weekend! Focus on the friends, not the food!

  3. Hi Katie J,

    I hope you have a great time with your friends at PF Changs. I was going to suggest the lettuce wraps also. They're good. Just enjoy the food and know that the sodium content will play a role in your body chemistry for the next few days. Lots of water intake will ultimately flush it all away! Enjoy your weekend - Leslie

  4. Hi Katie - what an awesome blog. Love to see how great you are doing. Hope to post some simliar successes myself soon enough.

  5. Never been to P.F. Changs but I hear it's great - hope you have a wonderful time with your friends!

    Enjoy your pedicure!

  6. Sounds like a nice time. Hope you have a good weekend! :-)

  7. Sounds like you've got this under control. I don't think we have a PF Changs. Good proactiveness on your part. :)

  8. That was really smart to have the nutritional information so you could make the best choice. I'm finally learning to think ahead like that in order to not blow my diet. I've never been to P.F. Chang's but I bet it was good.

    Thanks for your comment on my recent post. I appreciate it. Yes, 6 months is a long time to not weigh, but this is the first time that I have dieted and not had my usual scale crazies.

    Have a nice weekend!
