3.2.08 - Weigh less, eat less
Sunday, March 02, 2008
Back from DC and I must say, I find that losing weight means you eat less. I drank alot of Starbucks non-fat decaf lattes, and water. Only had 2 drinks the whole time I was there (one each evening). Here is what I had - not sure that it came out ok on the daily food diary, but I sure did try. LOL
Thursday at Cheesecake Factory - "Low cal" pear and endive salad - 590 calories per the menu and I didn't finish it. It was to die for. 3 bites of cheesecake, a pomegranite mojito. All I had for lunch was a turkey vegetable soup.
Friday at RFDs - fried calamari appetizer, 1 mozzarella stick and 12 oz of beer (3 - 4 oz samplers). For brunch I had mini pancakes with bananas - think I ate about 8 of them and about 3/4 of the cut up banana. Ate by dipping in syrup then putting the syrup on the leftover pancakes.
It probably wasn't optimal BUT...for me, it worked and was much much much better than if I wasn't here. On my way down I stopped twice for a potty break at the rest stops which are fast food heaven. All I got was a decaf at one stop and refilled my water bottle at another. That right there is a major behavior change. I always equated with driving and stopping with "the calories don't count". nervous LOL.
Anyway, I'm back on track - have a chicken roasting. Need to work in more veggies - how is it I get bored with veggies?
