HELP!! I ate a cheeseburger and fries!

Ok, I have been doing so good all week with my diet and exercise. After only losing 1 pound last week, I knew I had to be on top of it.
So, did I just mess everything up last night? My dear, sweet, single brother offered to babysit all 4 kids so that Cory and I could actually have a date.
Well, we wanted to go somewhere to eat and I just can't pay full price for anything. So, I started looking through my restaurant coupons and came across a Fuddruckers bogo coupon. That's all my husband needed to hear and he was ready to go.
Bogo means that we both needed to get a burger (not that there is much choice at Fuddruckers). So, I ate a cheeseburger and fries. I did not order a coke. I drank water. I also resisted the urge to by a milkshake. They have the best milkshakes and we ALWAYS buy a milkshake to share when we go there.
I told my supportive husband that I would go to Fuddrucker's ONLY if we walked around for a while afterward. He agreed and we did. We walked (and I mean speed-walked) around an outlet mall for over an hour.
No more cheating for me! I gotta stay strong! I gotta lose some more weight this week! I gotta BEAT JESSICA!!

I have never ate there. I think we have one close but never got brave. LOL I shouldn't be eating cheeseburgers either. LOL Great job on the walking. :)

Thanks for the visit. I come here but don't always comment. I should every visit.

Ok Cassie,

I have to share a new way for a cheap dinner out. Uno's pizzeria has appetizers for $2.99 in the lounge only from 4 to 7 pm. You do not have to order a drink, just sit in the lounge. The appetizers aren't a huge meal, but just sufficient for dinner. Here is the URL


P.S. The sliders are awesome!

Again they are small so you aren't completely blowing it!

Look at the bright side, you turned down the soft drink AND the milkshake. You followed dinner with an hour walk which should cover for the cheeseburger and fries.

You did okay...I don't think it'll kill you, though I've HAD Fuddruckers and I KNOW what those burgers are like...but as long as you keep up with exercise and then watch what you eat the rest of the time (and hey, a little extra fruit/veggie/fiber won't hurt), you should still be okay.

I was happy to lose 2 lbs this week...but I had to drastically change my eating habits, since I am prediabetic (my OWN diagnosis...but blood sugars of over 150 consistently would lead me that way...). Anyway....I think you'll be fine!

It's ok least you walked afterwards! :) Wish I could've seen you and Cory speed walking at the outlet mall! You're doing great!

I'd be more likely to skip the burger and have the shake! If it was required, I've got plenty of boys who would eat it for me. You passed up a milkshake, very well done!
Besides, you got to have time ALONE with your husband? No kids around? Being a little indulgent in that situation is completely understandable!

A little splurge never hurt a diet too much! We have Fudruckers and they are SOO good!!
