We are on a mini-vacation...just for a long weekend. It has been so nice to get away for a few days with my husband! And we have gotten in plenty of walking and hiking. That has been great for both of us! That was the easy part...the hard part has been the eating thing....I am pretty sure I haven't gone over, and in fact, maybe I have eaten too little. But eating out at small local places is just hard. I already know that eating out can be difficult because of tracking. We eat out a lot. So I am pretty experienced with that and I have become good at making estimates. But right now I am on a restricted diet and eat just tiny bits at a time. So today I ordered salmon with bok choy and Wild Rice at a local joint. Very delicious! It was in a spicy ginger sauce and it was awesome. I ate just a little and then I came back to enter my food in the tracker. Hmmmm, this is hard! I ate just tiny bits but how much? What was in that sauce? What about the breakfast that we had this morning? I am trying to guess on that too. As someone else told me, people who track tend to lose more and sometimes we do have to make estimates. If I miscalculated today, well, tomorrow is a new day!
