Happy Monday! It’s a gloomy day here in CT but I’m trying to be optimistic about getting a lot of shit done rather than hopping on the “OMG I hate Mondays” train, which is usually my preferred mood. BUT I will be happy for the start of a new week yay! (Insert eye-roll here).
The weekend was busy but with good stuff- Mike and I celebrated 6 months of marriage woohoooo! We went to dinner at a place in NYC called Quality Meats, we’ve been there a few times now and the steak is just ridiculously amazing. Soo I hate oysters, crab + avocado, some bites of Mike’s caesar salad (hold the croutons), a 10oz. filet and brussels sprouts. I’m kinda drooling right now thinking about it. I really like going to restaurants like this because we just eat lots of protein and veggies but it’s so delicious and by the end we aren’t even hungry for dessert. I’m not a big dessert person anyway, especially at a restaurant because there aren’t many gluten free/ dairy free options available. I’d rather drink my dessert– I had a glass of champagne and a glass of rosé with din, perfection. Sunday I woke up feeling great rather than like crap for eating sooo much. Cause when you eat crab, avocado, brussells, oysters and steak you really can’t be mad at yourself, ya know?
I think sometimes we go to restaurants and go overboard with ordering too much and a lot of carbs, leaving us feeling like shit later on. It really isn’t necessary. There are tons of dishes available that are on the healthier side and if you’re really a dessert person maybe order one to split with the table. You won’t feel deprived and you’ll probs be very pleased with your level of willpower and respect for your body. It’s a win/win: still eat yummy food just not a TON of it. Totally possible, right?
