Olive Garden then exercise

Yummy, yum, yum. Doesn't this just make your mouth water?!


My husband has been talking about going to Olive Garden for weeks to try a shrimp dish he saw on a commercial. My husband would NEVER go to Olive Garden because he's not into Italian food. Well tonight I treated him ( and he's decided Olive Garden is pretty good). We both got the garlic shrimp pasta (not sure what is was called on the menu). It was delicious. It was angel hair pasta with grilled shrimp, red peppers and zucchini. I want to say the sauce was alfredo, but I'm not so sure. And we never get dessert, but I was really bad and ordered a lemon creme cake. It was white cake with lemon creme filling and vanilla cake crumbs on top, yummy! Now don't you all start getting on to my because of my diabetes, I only had a couple of bites and made Hut eat the rest. Plus I only had 1/2 my meal because pasta is a no no too. I look at this as my final "bad" meal as I embark on better eating habits and exercise. When I finish this blog, it's on to the torture device.....my glider. It's too hot to walk tonight so I decided the glider was going to get a work out. I haven't used it in about 2 months. Hut has promised to go to the walking trail with me when I do go because I've had a couple of incidents with low blood sugars since I started on the meds and I don't want to be exercising somewhere and pass out. So to all my cheerleaders out there.......as of 7:00 pm est I am officially taking care of myself. Have a great night.....I'm off to the torture device.

I love Olive Garden. My husband is not really crazy about it but he will go when he sees something he might like. Don't overwork your glider, you don't want to tire it out or yourself:) Have a great night.

I like everything I've ever had to eat at Olive Garden! I haven't tried that dish and I must admit it sure looks good. I generally order the Tour of Italy...my personal favorite.

I'm glad you and Jerome went and enjoyed a nice meal at Olive Garden.

I'm 100% behind you for whatever you need to do to get your diabetes under control.
