We talked about this in my meeting last week and it has been on my mind since! 

When you eat out at a restaurant, what's your biggest challenge?

Oh there are so many challenges with eating out but my biggest would be choosing something healthy verses something completely tasty and full of fat and calories. I've cut out the appetizer and order a side salad now as one of my side dishes and I think it is helping.

My biggest challenge when eating out is the temptations.  I normally always look up the menu beforehand now, but once I get to the restaurant, so many other things look much better! It's hard to stick with the grilled chicken salad (for example) when you see all the other yummy items they have to offer.  I always feel good about my decisions when I stick to my plan, but it is hard!

Drinks and desert! It's hard to order water and stick with it when so many restaurants have some really delicious drinks to choose from these days. Who can resist a yummy capucino after dinner??
