As big an accomplishment as 100 days of consistent tracking is, I am more satisfied with making it 3 days of planning my food before eating it. Yeah! I had my first challenge today with lunch out with family at a new restaurant. Before I left, I added lots of choices to my lunch tracker just to see how the nutrition would pan out if I had beef, chicken or a chef salad. When we got to the restaurant, I considered 5 or 6 different entrees. The beef and noodles special looked so good, but my husband and I both decided it had too many carbs. I was wanting to keep my meal to 50 carbs. We all ended up ordering a beef brisket sandwich, which had plenty of meat on it. And I ordered a serving of coleslaw. When I entered it into my tracker, it was 44 carbs. I was very pleased with my efforts. I can say that limiting carbs to about the same number every time I eat, I don't get cravings like I have been. I am still just focusing on one day at a time and one meal at a time. The sun was out shiny and bright today, which was a wonderful change of pace. I hope the sun was shining on you today.
