Temptation at its absolute finest!

Sunday, August 24, 2008

It was my uncle's 50th birthday dinner tonight and I found out the other day that it was at a Brazilian Buffet. Nice! I went to the website and almost cried - it is a MEAT BUFFET! Check it out, lamb, chicken, tri tip, sirloin, prime rib, lamb, pork...you name it, they had it. And it was all you can eat. God help me. Here's a link to a picture of the food... www.greenfieldchurrascar

What's the big deal you ask?

1 - I gave up meat as of Tuesday, August 19, 2008. (along with milk and cheese)
2 - I used to LOVE MEAT. I mean, LOVE IT. I'd eat a steak as big as the portion my husband would order. It was borderline embarrassing.

So for a newbie to non-meat eating like me, this was going to be hard.

I did ok though and although I ate a lot (no stress there bc of the 9 miles I ran this morning and the great calorie week so far), I DID NOT CAVE!

I stuck to the shrimp (keeping seafood in my diet for now) and salads. And carrot cake, naturally. (the picture is of my first of like, 3 plates of food).

Best part? NO FOOD COMA afterwards!!! emoticon

    Dang, I couldn't do it..I still can't bring myself to read the Skinny Bitch book or watch the uTube video... I like meat way too much! Brazillians sure do know how to eat meat though! We have a nice Brazilian restaurant here in Atlanta too. Good job on sticking to your new convictions, that's awesome!

    Sounds like you did great! I ate at one of those places in Houston last year, it's so hard to remain in control! emoticon

    good for you for not caving. that would have been very hard to do as I love meat too. I am a big fan of a nice filet. Keep up the good work.

    Congrats on running 9 miles!! That's awesome.
