Beware of the Spotted Dog

Today was a really great day! 

I got up this morning and went to Zumba and sweated my little heart out and burned many-a-calorie! Yay!

I then went to the hu-mungo outlet mall with a new girlfriend and got Zoey these freakin cute boots for winter! And while I was shopping for the little ones tried on this SIZE LARGE yellow pea coat from Old Navy. It buttoned all the way up and while I thought it looked a little tight it didn't feel tight. Everything in the store was 40% off. Awesome right?! I didn't buy a single thing. I'm stingy like that.
To cap off a fab day, I went on a date with Jakey Poo tonight! The plan was to go and test drive the new mini cooper with the 4 doors. I've been dying to get inside of one, just to see how it drives. I had to give up my mini cause there was no way a car seat and stroller where fitting in that thing. Sadly, the dealership was closed....sigh. Another day.
We hit up Outback. Jake works there, so we get 50%. It's a no brainer! Our bill tonight was $7.52. It wasn't my best night of choices. I got the kids grilled chicken (ate 1/2) with a side of mac and cheese (ate 1/3). I had a bite of Jake's sandwich and a piece of bread and a few blooms of the bloomin onion that one of the servers dropped off at our table even though we didn't order it. I had only had 300 calories up until dinner so I felt like I splurge a bit.
I knew going to Outback I wanted the Spotted Dog Sundae to share with Jake. It's the kids sundae with ice cream, whipped cream, chocolate sauce, oreo crumbles. I figured since it's on the kids menu it can't be more that 500 calories tops, and splitting it with Jake I would be golden. Well.... I got on my calorie counter AFTER eating it and found these nutritional facts...

um.... ouch! That wasn't expected! Thank goodness I exercised today and basically every day this week. I will be closing eyes as I get on the scale tomorrow (that makes no sense now does it?)

So my friends..... stay away from the spotted dog sundae at outback, or share with 4 other people! (if that is even possible cause it's so darn it all good!)

Time to cuddle up and watch a movie with Jake! Night!


  1. cute jacket and boots..why didn't you get something for yourself at Old Navy? You have lost 26 lbs. I think that is cause for celebration!!! good for you

  2. Yum, that does look good! I'm sure you'll be fine on the scale today, though! :)

  3. Oh, I totally understand getting on the scale and not looking. At the doc's office - that's exactly what I used to do :)

  4. Ohhh that looks good.
    You should have bought the jacket!
