Austin


Saturday, January 25, 2014


Yesterday I left for Austin for a women's leadership conference for today. This outing could have posed a problem for me. I mean, I've been counting my calories and I could easily eat out of my range.

This is what I did. I saved about 600 calories for dinner. We ended up at Texas Land and Cattle for dinner. I poured over that menu until I finally settled on a grilled pork chop- cooked dry, with a side salad and sweet baked potato. So, I thought I was going to eat everything… I was hungry after all. After scarfing that salad, I really only ate half of the pork chop and half of the potato, I was full! So, score for me… I saved calories there!


Then for the conference- I encountered a buffet continental breakfast. I went for the Dannon Yogurt Light and Fit, and mixed fresh fruit with coffee.

Lunch: grilled chicken salad- tea, and coffee.

Dinner: Chili's margarita chicken and tortilla soup- from the "lighter choice" menu. Felt full after eating only the chicken and soup; barely touched the beans and rice.


I ended up coming right at my caloric allotment.

And I made it safely home today. :)

Let's see what happens at tomorrows weigh-in.
