I have a notebook in Evernote with a separate note for each restaurant I visit and what the best options are for my diet plan in each. I don't write down the "best options" that I wouldn't like either - just what I'd actually order. With my smart phone, I have that custom reference to keep me on track.
Having a plan is half the battle, having it HANDY is the other half.

I have added rescuing stray grocery carts to my "park far away" routine at major box stores and grocery stores. Rescuing a grocery cart left in a parking space is a good deed, and gives you a little upper body exercise while you're walking toward the store. Win-win!
Since I am now walking on a fairly regular basis, I decided to put a walk pack together. Just used a small, sport sling backpack. I hate keeping a lot of stuff in my pockets, and sometimes don't even have pockets. It's ready to go on a moments notice by the door.
Items in mine:Rescue inhaler & glucose tablets (I'm diabetic & asthmatic); Special house key on a lanyard (special because I got a fun lanyard and matching key, also has my Medicalert dogtag on it); my phone, water bottles for me & my dog, umbrella, sunglasses, good girl cookies for puppy, ipod band
