Way To Lose a Pound!!!

Tuesday, October 09, 2012

Hiya Everyone!

I'm down 1.2 lbs for a total of 21.6! emoticon

Let me just say that it's not been easy this week, as I was on the road for 2 days...eating out in restaurants & now staying w/family. As you know, when you're traveling, it's very difficult to remain in control & on track! I'll share what works for me!

*TRACKING everything! & stay in range!
*pack a cooler w/low fat yogurt/fruit/cheese/nuts/water for the road!
*exercise of some form, no matter what! Even just 20-30 mins a day!
*remain mindful of what I'm putting in my mouth! always!

I have to admit that it's been difficult at times when everyone around me is eating desserts & drinking beverages that I'd love to have! Case in point,...we went to a Mexican restaurant & of course, I have my most favorite! Shrimp fajitas! But when everyone ordered margaritas...which I LOVE! I looked up a margarita on WW's before I would order, & I found it's....(wait for it)

...19 points! I mean, really?!!! 19????!!!! So NOT worth it! That was my thought, anyway!

I kept looking things up before I ordered food in restaurants & sometimes it's crazy ridiculous the amount of calories or points some foods are! Many aren't worth it! My thoughts, anyway...

It certainly keeps me on my toes!!! emoticon

Alright guys, I hope you're all well! I'm staying w/family in Ohio & will be heading back to warmer temps & sunshine next Monday! Until then, I'm struggling to keep warm! I'm getting my exercise in, even though it's not my normal 2 hours/daily! I did get to do a SPIN class w/my youngest & I'm gonna do ZUMBA on Wednesday w/her too!

Keep moving forward everyone... & stay healthy!!!

Hugs & love!

    Rose you are doing great. I have to tell you I too look at calorie charts even in the Golden arches and i do so appreciate they are there.

It is the only way to go for me. It is a chore to have to write things down that you have eaten in the course of a day. Just as hard to write them before but unfortunately that is the only ways to get it done HUGS Pat in Maine. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Wow, Rose ... 21.6 pounds. That's great!

I know what you mean about travelling and eating ... although the last couple trips I took I went to visit my sister (who breeds quarter horses) so I did a lot of poop shoveling, hay tossing, saddle swinging and riding. I ate like a farmer but worked like one too ... and I came back 2 pounds lighter. And I think I slept for three days emoticon In case you couldn't tell, I had a wonderful time!

    You are doing exceptional even with eating while traveling. Your list of what you do and doing it is a major key. You inspire! Enjoy Ohio & family time.

on those 21.6 lbs!
That is exactly how I do not gain wt on vacations-
even 9 days in Paris.
19 points!
That's gotta be way over 1000 calories!
