I worked all day as our "nutritionist on television" during WIC clinic. It was very busy which helped the day pass with reasonable speed.
I have had 3 very challenging days trying to fit everything in... I still managed 3 miles each day... one day outdoors, one day with Leslie Sansone, one day with treadmill. I think the focus I needed actually helped. I will actually be able to walk at lunch tomorrow... yay!!
Hubby made a nice chili for dinner, tasted good. Ate it over brown rice.
Had a big salad and a nice South Beach frozen pizza for lunch.
I've found that for convenience food, I really like South Beach stuff, the emphasis on veggies and protein is wonderful for me. Their meals actually have full veggie servings, rather than a bare hint that veggies were waved somewhere near the manufacturing plant.
Right now I'm about to fall over. Good Night!!

I was in a training all day and they fed us, which can be a real mixed bag. The snacks were fine: fruit, granola, yogurt... and plenty of water to drink.
Lunch was almost my perfect food nightmare... the only thing that would have been worse was if everything had been deep-fried. It was basically a few chunks of chicken and a hint of vegetables and potatoes in a CREAM SAUCE. Served with 2 biscuits, and a pile of rice and a basket of rolls on the table. OMG, CARB MUCH? There was a tiny portion of steamed carrots and broccoli on the side.
I ate the chicken and stuff in the cream sauce & the veggies, avoided the rice and bread and rolls and dessert. After that, I went and got my carrots and grapes I'd brought... I then had a HUGE salad when I got home with a nice LEAN ground beef patty george'd and crumbled over the top. That was some GREAT eating!
I think about the plate split 3 ways that you are supposed to have half veggies, 25% each of carbs and meat. This plate would have been 90% carbs, 5% each of meat and veggies.
I told hubby about it and he said, "Who planned this meal?!?!?"
I'm putting out a question of folks... what are some of your favorite gadgets, websites, tips, tricks, etc (aside from our beloved SP) that help you stay on track?
