Indian Flavor

Hello world!!

One of my biggest fear about my new life style, is the fact that eating is such a huge part of getting together with family and friends… will I be able  to go out, have fun  and not jeopardize my goal?

Well…

Yesterday I went to my niece’s college with her mother to bring her boxes so she can pack her stuff for the summer break.

When we got there it was around 2pm already, and my niece and her boyfriend hadn’t had lunch yet and they we starving…so they took us out to lunch.

Well…big problem, since my sister and I (she is doing it to help) are on a very strict diet of protein shakes and some vegetables.

We went to an Indian Restaurant in Bedford, NY, Little Kebab is the name of it. Very cute place, a complicated menu and strange food (to me).

So, what to eat? Everything had lots of cream, cheese, bread, rice,  lamb, chicken etc…

I finally decided to have a salad, hold the cheese, the croutons, the bread, the  dressing and etc…,

Chefs hate that, but what is a girl to do??

And a tall glass of water!

I have one thing to say, I was very proud of me and my sister, because my niece and boyfriend are not on a diet, and they ate a dish with chicken, lots of a very delicious looking cream and rice. I love rice!!!

But I showed myself that even though is hard to do it, I can still go out with friends and family where food is involved and keep myself from eating what I shouldn’t.

If we are keeping points, one goes to me!!!

Ola!!

Um dos meus maiores medos neste novo estilo de vida, e o fato de que comer faz uma parte tao grande nos programas com familias e amigos…Serei eu capaz de sair, me diverter, e nao arriscar a minha meta?

Ontem eu fui a faculdade da minha sobrinha com a minha Irma, para levar caixas para ela empacotar as coisas dela para as ferias de verao.

Quando chegamos la, ja eram 2 horas da tarde, minha sobrinha e o namorado dela nao haviam comido ainda e estavam morrendo de fome… e eles nos levaram para almocar fora.

Nos fomos a um Restaurante Indiano, em Bedford, NY. O nome to restaurant era “Little Kebab”. Uma gracinha de lugar, um menu complicado e comida estranha (para mim).

Entao….o que comer, tudo tinha muito crème, queijo, pao, arroz, carneiro, frango e etc…

Eu finalmente decidi pedir a salada, sem  queijo, sem pao, sem molho etc.

Chefes nao gostam disso, mas o que uma pessoa pode fazer?

E um copo grande de agua!!

Eu tenho uma coisa para dizer, eu estou super orgulhosa de mim e minha Irma! Porque minha sobrinha e o namorado dela (Gary) nao estao fazendo dieta e comeram um prato com frango, um crème que parecia estar delicioso a muito arroz, eu adoro arroz!!!

Mas eu mostrei para mim mesma que mesmo que seja dificil, eu posso continuar sair com amigos onde ha comida, e nao comer o que nao devo!!!

Se estamos contando pontos , um vai para mim!!!!!
