Happy Monday everyone!
This past weekend was a busy one. I went out on a Valentine's Day date with my husband on Friday night, I had a busy Saturday doing errands and yesterday I went to a birthday party for a friends daughter.
So what happens when it becomes tougher to count calories?
Well you guesstimate for one thing and steer clear of a few things you know will add up.
I am proud to say that I did stay in my calorie range all 3 days and even skipped the dairy queen ice cream cake at the birthday party. I had angel food cake instead and it was plentiful and really good. We had to stop at Arby's on the way to the party because it was a couple of hours away from where we live and I skipped the fries and got a regular roast beef sandwich with a side salad and a vinaigrette dressing to go with it. I did steal a couple of my husband's fries but was happy with myself that I did not order them. It is hard sometimes but if I can just a have a couple, then I am ok.
So life happens and food choices have to be made outside of the safety zone, but I can do it. It is not always easy, but it is so worth it not to gain again and then have to lose again.
I even got my 45 mins on the elliptical before we left for the day.
Stay strong everyone! We can do this.
Have a great week.
