I have been slow in the weight loss game recently. In particular, this has been a rough week. We traveled to various states this week on some short trips. Well, I will say that we had a lot of fun. Just the two of us and visiting some landmarks in the southeast. The problem is, when we travel, we go to restaurants everyday. There were a few days that we ate at restaurants twice in a day. I tried to be healthy - sometimes we ate a Subway and I tried to make healthy choices. For instance, no mayo and several veggies. It did not matter. We also walked a lot. A few days I walked over 2 hours. As I have learned through the years exercise is necessary. It is great. Nevertheless, I have to also watch my calories.
I have learned that calories do add up. Here is something I want to share.
A forkful of mac ‘n cheese here, a few fries there; how bad can that be? “For every 100 extra calories you consume daily, you gain 10 pounds each year,” from Woman's Day.
In the past I also had the mindset that if I exercise over an hour or two daily, I can just go eat more.
But it all adds up.
