Started Out Good, but Ended with a Bad Cheat Meal
I woke up this morning with an sense of urgency. A sense of urgency to get up and get some cardio in before I started my day. I accomplished that mini goal by hopping on my recumbent bike for an hour. I was proud of myself for managing to get another cardio session in first thing in the morning. It’s becoming a comfortable habit. That’s a good thing. Now enter the culprit / cheat meal enabler: Outback Steakhouse!
So for a majority of the day I was ecstatic. Things were going smooth. Then I get home and it’s time for dinner. Gulp! My wife didn’t know what to prepare, and I wasn’t much help. She mentioned that she received a couple of gift cards to Outback Steakhouse and that one of them was a year old. My immediate thought was to use them as soon as possible, and that’s what we did. I guess this can qualify as my cheat meal?
I booted up my trusty lap top and scanned through their online menu. We chose to have baby back ribs for out cheat meal… They were slamming! Finger licking good. That’s where the day turned out bad. I ate the whole thing with no remorse. None what so ever. The ribs, the fries, even the apple side dish thingy they give you. I don’t feel guilty and I don’t want to kill myself, but I suppose I feel I need to work a bit harder to work it off. That’s all though.
Should I care more about what my cheat meal consists of? I see it as a pebble in the road that made me trip. All I need to do is get back up and keep walking.
Is that a good thing?
