Just Focus

You know when you wake up and have that haze in your eyes that makes it difficult to see at first. You know the one I'm talking about right? Or even the haze you get when you are way over tired at night and need to get to sleep but you struggle to stay awake because you have other things to do. No matter how hard you rub your eyes, the haze just won't go away and you can't seem to focus on much of anything.

Yea. That's how I'm feeling this week. I have enough focus to keep my calories down and get my (minimal) workouts in but other than that, I'm shot. Everything I do is difficult. I can't seem to focus on even the simplest of tasks. I swear I have ADD this week. I can't even complete a thought.

It's my own fault. I'm pretty sure my vitamin D is low. This is how I get when I'm deficient. I meant to take the pill yesterday but got distracted by some shiny object of some sort and never got around to it. I made my husband remind me to take one tonight...and I did just that. I took one (a mega-dose). I should be a little better in the morning and by Saturday, with any luck, the fog will be lifted.

As far as the food stuff goes, today wasn't too bad. It's my mother's birthday so the family took her out to The Texas Roadhouse. VERY DANGEROUS PLACE!  OMG!  The rolls are todiefor. The Ribs? YUM! Ugh. You'll be happy to know I had noneofit.

I planned on ordering a grilled chicken salad without the croutons. That plan did end up going out the window because by the time we got there (traffic) and were seated (there was a wait), I was famished. I had 4 peanuts while waiting but didn't want to mindlessly eat more than that. I passed on the bread (I deserve a medal for that!) but was tested when they ordered an appetizer (bloomin' onion). I was hungry. Getting grouchy kind of hungry. I opted to order a plain (yes, I said plain) baked potato.  Luckily that came out with the appetizer so I could munch on something a bit more healthy.  Because those potatoes are so huge and probably soaked in oil before being baked, I decided to just have a side salad with just a touch of dressing. My trick for dressing is to just dip your fork in ever so slightly. It saves a ton of calories when you can't measure.

All in all, I'd say that was a success!!!

    1. Thanks! That was almost as good as dropping 5 pounds! LOL!

  2. You totally deserve an award for not eating Texas Roadhouse rolls! That is manna from Heaven, right there! I always get the grilled sirloin & shrimp. Did you see where they won't make their nutritional info public until they're made to, since "everything is made from scratch and that creates variations due to different chefs"? Crazy. That's why their food is so good, tho!

    1. They are smart not to post their nutritional info! If they did, no one would eat there! HAHA! The food is way too good! MyFitnessPal has information, I used that as a guide and went with it.
