Cheesecake Factory is not the devil.

Yesterday ended up being a really decent day.  Our A/C was broken at work, so the office was 90 degrees all day.  That makes for some cranky employees!  (Meaning me!)  I did get my workout in though and knowing I was going to The Cheesecake Factory made it even more important.

I was happy to see that TCF had a Skinnylicious menu.  I did a little google research and found some options that people tried and liked.  Overall, I ended up with a calorie neutral day and that is fine with me. 

To give you a little review of TCF, they had some "skinny" cocktails under 150 calories each, but I'm fine with bourbon and diet coke.  Our table shared some chips & guacamole which wasn't on the skinny menu, but still a not-too-bad yet tasty appetizer.  I had the Factory Chopped Salad and I was worried about not having enough food.  That was not the case at all.  It was delicious and filling.  I would absolutely get it again.

They also had a full gluten free menu, so BFF was happy.  Since there are so many options for both of us, we felt like we should go back.  It was a place we both avoided before.  See, Cheesecake Factory...sometimes giving people information makes them WANT to come back!!

I went home and made the mistake of turning the Rangers game on.  Sigh.  So I was up entirely too late.  BUT...they won!  So that's good.  Plus, my favorite player is doing well right now and that is fun to watch.  Tonight I will have to make myself not even turn the game on at all.  I need to be in bed around the time it starts!  West Coast series are tough.

I woke up this morning and was glad to see that ALL my vacation bloat left in one day.  That made me very happy because I would be super sad to gain weight for my Challenge weigh in.  I have 2 pounds to go to reach my next mini-goal.  I don't know if I can do that by next Tuesday, but I should shoot for it!

I'm working out at lunch and Jazzercising today.  I have my food all planned out and it should be a good day!

I just know I'm not strong enough Togo and make the right decision, but I'm so proud of you!
