did not do so well tonight. i made a less healthy choice then overate. i am waiting till thursday to officially start this challenge,
toinight i cleaned out the spice cabinet. i will have plenty of low calorie and also some low sodium seasonings for my meals. i also cleaned out the baking/cooking cupboard. i have oats, lentils, whole grain pasta, canned tuna and a few other items so i know what i have for making healthy meals.
That sounds like a great goal! My husband likes to go out to eat on weekends when he's not out in the field, but lately I've been limiting that to just once a week and it's been working out great for us. I also have gotten away from eating fast food before or after work and just take a lunch bag to work so I can plan ahead what I'm eating and won't be tempted.
Our lives can change with every breath we take.

Overall we do eat at home, just this one work lunch that I have to do. I live in the middle of rural Ozarks where the game is often "the first one to find a vegetable on the menu wins" its awful! BUT, its once a week so I suppose I can just deal with it. I just have to limit myself from going on the other days of the week lol!
Restaurant food is tempting but you can work around it. I look up the nutrition information on line before I go out to eat and choose an item that I can fit into my plan. I put it on my nutrition tracker and plan the rest of my meals accordingly. That way I don't go over my calories for the day. Most chains and some local restaurants have this information on line.

Cooking dinner at home isn't a problem, I do that every night, but tend to go out for lunch several times a week with coworkers. One is mandatory so my goal this week is to take and eat lunch each day except Tuesday!
