Going to Lake Placid

Saturday, September 13, 2008

Well, I will be going away next week from Monday to Saturday and we will be eating out for breakfast, lunch and dinner. We don't always have all of those meals but most of them. When I am away on vacation I usually have a glass of wine at night so I have to leave room for that too.
I am keeping a small notebook in my pocket and writing everything down as I eat it. That way I will be more accountable. I get plenty of walks in so exercise won't be too hard.

Any other ideas?

    You can do it! Writing everything down is a great way to go - as you can see the big picture at the end of the day. If it's possible, predetermine what you will have for breakfast. I usually stick to a poached egg on unbuttered wheat toast and fruit of some sort or a whole grain cereal, if they have it. It's the one meal that I know I can keep simple, so I don't deviate. And if I have aready made up my mind I won't sit there reading the list of other tempting foods. Lunch I usually stick to a plain salad of some sort with grilled chicken or a fish. Again, I just don't want the temptations. Why read down the sandwich list, when I know it isn't the direction I need to go. Dinner have a simple meat/fish or poultry selection and double vegatables, and a nice salad. Enjoy your glass of wine, and skip dessert. I think the hardest part of travelling and eating out is getting the fruit you need. Stop at a roadside stand and get some apples for snacks. Have a wonderful time - I love that area.
