The last few days I’ve been in a bit of a dazed state. I don’t feel like I’ve accomplished anything even though I have been fairly productive the past few days. I’m going to blame it on lack of sleep and too much eating out. I don’t think I’ve gotten more than 6.5 hours of sleep any night this week. I’ve just had an awful time falling asleep at night (and an equally awful time getting up when the alarm goes off in the morning.) I’m not sure why either. Usually my head hits the pillow and I’m out like a light. It’s probably all the eating out and lack of quality meals at home. That’s really the only thing that’s changed recently.
Wednesday night I went with my parent’s to the tax guy. (CPA? Accountant? Either? I’m really not sure so I call him the tax guy.) We at dinner at Chili’s beforehand. On the restaurant food chain, Chili’s is really nothing worth raving about, but their Guiltless Grill Grilled Chicken sandwich always hits the spot. I’m not a mustard fan at all so I always order it with a side of guacamole. Actually ordering made me laugh because I was thinking about JLee’s post about being picky at restaurants.
Chili’s the menu description:
“Grilled chicken with applewood smoked bacon, Swiss and honey-mustard dressing on a sesame seed or wheat bun. GG- with steamed veggies and Guiltless Grill honey-mustard dress, no bacon or cheese on a wheat bun.” (comes with lettuce and tomato on it as well)
“Guiltless Grill, Grilled Chicken sandwich, no lettuce, tomato, or mustard. I’d like a side of guacamole for it and black beans rather than steamed veggies.”
Please make me an entirely different meal loosely based on the Guiltless Grill, Grilled Chicken sandwich.
Oh well, the way I see it, if I’m paying for my food somewhere, I want it to be what I want. Plus, I think you half to be picky in order to eat semi-healthy at a chain restaurant like Chili’s.
Yesterday we had a late lunch at P.F. Chang’s for my co-worker Kim’s birthday. We ordered the Seared Ahi Tuna (my fave!) and Salt and Pepper Calamari as appetizers. My entrée was the Cantonese Scallops and ate it on top of brown rice, and for dessert we had the banana spring rolls which come with coconut ice cream. The banana spring rolls are easily my favorite restaurant dessert anywhere. I didn’t make any crazy order alterations there though.
I’ve got more to update about, but I’ve been so wordy lately**. I think I’m going to stop here for now. I’ll ramble some more later when I post lunch. Plus, keep your eye out because my financial responsibility challenge update has actually evolved into a series of posts which start tonight. The series will include my progress as well as a guest blog from Laura who has been a critical element of my success this time around.
