I met up with some friends at Sweet Rice that I hadn’t seen in forever! It was great to catch up. I can’t be sure of exactly how many calories dinner was, but after some intense Googling I think that this estimate is probably pretty close. Good thing I counted all my earlier calories so I don’t feel toooooo guilty…

Dinner Total: ~800 calories

Total Total (heh): 1,605 calories. Score! Not too bad at all. But tomorrow I swear I am cooking at home! Be sure to tune in tomorrow for a full Sweet Rice recap. ‘Til then, goodnight!


    • Isn’t it just so delicious? Nommmm

  1. I think it’s a great way to hold yourself accountable for any “cheats.” Nice summer roll shot, BTW!

  2. Looove pad thai! 🙂

    Not sure if my dates (from Trader Joe’s) are just bigger but they’re like 55 calories just for the date. off to google 🙂

    • Yeah, that’s what I thought too! But I got these from Whole Foods in the bulk section and the thing on the bin said 5 pieces = 120 calories. So must be a size thing (plus these still had the pits inside them?

  3. Everything you eat looks so tasty! I think we should go out to eat during fitbloggin and I’ll just get what you get. haha (J/K … sort of.)

    • Hehehe, thanks! But I think we’ve established that I don’t always make the bessssssssssst choices so you might wanna rethink that strategy. 😉 It’s so soon!! I can’t wait! 😀

  4. What’s with the sugared strawberries? Aren’t they sweet by themselves? 🙂 It’s been great with them in season because you can get them half off or buy 1, get 1 everywhere. We’ve been gnoshing on lots of strawbs and grapes at my house these days.

    • Mom made a huge batch of strawberries with sugar on top and gave it to me and I didn’t want to waste it! It’s just cut up strawberries with sugar mixed in which draws out all the juice from the strawbs. Obviously I just eat them by themselves, too, but I’m trying to be frugallll
