I am the biggest loser...in Atlantic City (ooophs)



Well, night one and my pockets are feeling just a big lighter.  I have to fix that tomorrow.  The drive to Atlantic City (AC as known by Jerseyettes) was a wet one.  We left snow, sleet and freezing rain and drove 2.5 hours to get here.  We were really hungry when we arrived and shortly after checking in found ourselves a restaurant.  It is slim pickens at 9:30 at night in the winter.  We made our way to The Hardrock Cafe.  Alan was asking me the healthier choice of 2 dinners and then asked me what I was getting.  I told him (with a straight face mind you) that I was getting a hurricane to drink, nachos for an appetizer, steak for dinner and apple cobbler for dessert.  His face was priceless, I thought he was going to say what about how you are eating now?  Instead he was upset I was going to have dessert because he gave it up for lent.  I started laughing at him, seriously Alan, I would not be putting all that in my body!!!  The best choice on the menu seemed to be a citrus salad, with grilled chicken, pecans, cranberries and blue cheese with a citrus dressing.  I asked for balsamic vinegar on the side and had that instead of the dressing. Also, I left a lot of the cranberries on the plate, seemed to be at least 150 calories just of them.  I have to admit I left the table feeling hungry, but I will thank me tomorrow! 
 

Gambling sucked tonight, usually I do pretty good, but it just wasn't working for me tonight. (oh well )
My plan tomorrow is to LOSE pounds and I am not talking English money.  I will hit up the gym, even though Donald Trump is hitting me up for $20.00 to use his fitness center for 1 day.  (how utterly pathetic)  And since I have been a winner taking care of myself for the last 5 weeks, I expect to also win tomorrow on the black jack tables and slots!  (one can hope, wish & pray)

Wish me luck PLEASE!!!!  (grin)
