Very proud of my self

Monday, March 21, 2011

Spent a lot of time on the road this weekend. Left very early on Friday morning to travel to Virginia to a friend move back to Michigan.

While on the road and many stops in the service centers along the way the serve lots of fast food junk. I packed my own food to go with me so the only junk I ate on the way there was none. I did get coffee to go.

When I got to home she had a Philly steak and cheese sub for me, it was a 12" one, I was thinking to my self no way will I or can I eat this whole thing, as I know its not good for me. Well I did eat half of it that night and the other half the next day for lunch.

Breakfast that day was sausage, eggs, hash browns and toast. I did not I mean did not clean my plate.

We had a good dinner that night with baked chicken, green beans, salad, and mashed potatoes. Once again I did not clean my plate.

Than back on the road to Michigan on Sunday morning. She went through the drive thru at Mc Donalds asked if I wanted anything when I said thank you but no thank you. I made my self some oatmeal with lite yogurt, and 1/2 c of skim milk and put fruit in it and had that for breakfast packed it in my cooler and ate this on the road. We did stop again at many rest stops on the way home. I did eat some taco bell and that was all.

Got back in Michigan about 8pm had a salad with a hard boiled relaxed about a hour than off to bed.

All in all with some of the junk I ate this weekend I didn't gain a pound. I didn't make my not being at home an excuse to not still eat good healthy, and over eat. emoticon

    It is difficult to eat healthy when you are traveling. You planned well and it paid off. Eating foods occassionally which are less healthy won't totally de-rail all of our hard work and progress towards health. This is especially true in the manner you describe in controlled portions. This is why I really like the freedom of the 80-20 guideline Spark advocates. In the long run you probably felt better during the trip, and you have the satisfaction of knowing you met a challenge and returned home just the same size as when you left. emoticon emoticon
