Yesterday I found a great coupon for Logan’s Roadhouse that’s good this weekend (through 10/30/16).
The $5 off $20 comes to a 25% discount, which is a great deal!
Since my hiking shoes were in the washing machine, this seemed like a great opportunity to throw on my skirt & heels and get out for a food adventure – for a change. 🙂 It’s been awhile!
Not to worry, the coupon wasn’t the only thing I printed. I also printed a new trail map, lol.
I was actually planing my next big hiking fitness adventure while I enjoyed my low carb dinner at Logan’s. 😉
They have lots of great low carb options on the menu, so it was a tough choice.
Let me backtrack though…
I got up at 2:30am yesterday. Only because I went to bed super early, lol. Anyway, that made for a super long day since I was up until after midnight.
I had my usual “low carb cereal” breakfast that I love, pecans (30 grams) later in the morning for a quick snack, and sausage & eggs for lunch.
My Low Carb Dinner at Logan’s Roadhouse
I was really torn on what to order for dinner at Logan’s. They have so many great low carb foods! Sauteed mushrooms or grilled mushroom skewers? Salmon, steak, chicken or shrimp? YUM!
I finally settled on the grilled shrimp skewers, and I was not disappointed. They were delicious. 🙂 I got “loaded broccoli” and sauteed mushrooms as the two sides, and also ordered a side caesar salad (no croutons).
For the broccoli I simply said, “loaded, like a baked potato.”
Here were my low carb breakfast & lunch meals:
I didn’t finish all of my beautiful low carb dinner at Logan’s Roadhouse, so I brought home a take-out box. I logged it the best I could figure, based on how much I ate…

While I was at dinner I studied the new trail map, planning out an adventurous hike. I’ve been to parts of this area before, but there’s one end with multiple waterfalls that I haven’t explored yet. 🙂
Dinner alone, hiking alone, and now – after studying that map – I’m considering camping alone!
I’m going to do a short day trip hike there first to feel it out, but it’s an awesome time of year to go camping… and I think I’ve found the perfect spot to “pitch a tent.” 🙂
I’m having fun venturing out on my own and changing things up a bit. Including my delicious meal at Logan’s last night. I’m making it a point to eat something colorful every day, so the broccoli was a great addition to the berries I had for breakfast. Mushrooms are a great low carb source for potassium too!
You might have noticed I’m wearing my Infinity Ring again. 🙂
After my cathartic waterfall trip this week, it’s been back on my finger – with a whole new meaning.
I can’t stop thinking about those water drops… about how the same drop of water never falls over a waterfall twice. About how every single drop of water is brand new, which means the waterfall is never the same. It only looks the same, or seems the same, to the human eye…
The waterfall is a constant. It’s always there, every time I go back it looks exactly the same – and has since the first time I saw it as a child. The water flow may be different depending on the time of year, heavier or lighter, but there it sits.
Realizing now that it has never been the same at all and how it is constantly renewed, literally faster than the eye can see, just kinda blew my mind a little bit.
It seems like such a simple concept, I know – it’s just one I never considered.
I’m still processing that one, but somehow it has me viewing myself in a whole new way. Hmm *pause* I just did a little research on Google. I haven’t done any fact-checking, but I found this:
“Your body is constantly replacing old cells with new ones at the rate of millions per second. By the time you finish reading this sentence, 50 million of your cells will have died and been replaced by others.” –source
And then this video made me smile:
I particularly liked the part about the heart and the eyes. 🙂
Everything appears the same, yet everything is constantly changing – including us.
Why then do we fear (or resist) change?
Change is good. It’s natural…
Apologies – I’ve gone way off topic, lol. My amazing day at Burgess Falls had a profound effect on me, and I’m itching to get back out in the woods chasing waterfalls with a whole new appreciation for nature – and for myself.
Anyway, do you go out to eat alone? 🙂
I really enjoyed my night out and my meal at Logan’s. My dinner at Rib City the other night was great too! At least I was cleaned up for my dinner last night. I walked into Rib City filthy, sweaty & wet after a 4-hour waterfall hike 😛 lol.
