Eating Out and Staying In Range

Thursday, June 20, 2013

It was a good Thursday. Work went calls slowed down's so much easier when there are fewer calls.

Went out to lunch with my co-workers for lunch. That was fun. We went to Bob Evans. I got the BE Fit Breakfast...delicious...a lot of food...not a lot of calories. Loved that. They have a lighter side section to their menu with the calories listed...I'm so glad restaurants have started doing that. I have another co-worker that would like to walk with us at lunch when we walk at lunch. Yay! Fitness is catching on!

DH and I also went out for supper...two meals out in one day...yikes! We had a coupon for the flatbread that Chili's now has. I was going to get that...then I looked up the calories. They have 3 different ones...all of them are over 1300 calories each. flatbread for me. I had the grilled chicken salad instead. It was really good...I had never had this at Chili's before. I'll get it again...only 430 calories, too.

Then DH and I walked over to Payless and we got him a new pair of tennis shoes. I had a text code to get 20% off. If you register online for their shopper's club, they will send you a 20% off text code...btw. Then, we walked over to a farmer's market that they had at the shopping area...and then over to the classic car show that was also going on at the shopping area. It was a lot of fun. Then we walked back to Chili's and came home.

Mia and I went on another dusk walk this evening. So, with all this walking, I got my 10,000 steps in and I did my stairs at home to get my 10 flights in too. Yay! June marches on...and my streaks are continuing.

We are having a salad bar at work tomorrow during lunch. I made a pasta salad to take in and share. TGIF!

Hope you all had a great day! Keep up the good work! Thanks for the encouragement! Spark on! emoticon emoticon

    Sounds like you had a emoticon day all around! I applaud you on making good choices on the menus and for getting your exercise in. Sounds like Bpb Evans has done a revamp of their menu. Might have to try it for the BeFit breakfast. Isn't it amazing that flatbread can have 1300 calories! emoticon
Hope this week is another successful one for you, Cathy!

    Eating out MUST fit in to my lifestyle as it is part of our lives! It sounds like you found some good low cal options. I always worry about the sodium in restaurant meals as well.

    Awesome! Great work on good choices! I love it when restaurants have their calorie counts right on their menus. It makes choosing so much easier!

    I wish I did as well as you when I eat out. I try to avoid it as I am so picky and find few things I would want to eat.

planning, fitness, time w/DH - sounds like a GREAT day.

the boss is out of the office today & tomorrow. So I can dress a bit more casual (people rarely come in when he's not there). Khakis and flats - YAY!

I left in time for the 4:30 spin class; planning to get to 6am Tabata in the morning (which means I need to get to sleep)
