8/23/2009 One Week Off

Sunday, August 23, 2009

The last week was a total zoo for me. I had to go out of town for training. Dinning out ruled the week with 4 of the 5 nights. I didn't make it to the gym all week long. I really fell of the wagon last week. The good news is I didn't do nearly as much damage as I thought. I got on the scales yesterday and had only put on 1 pound from my last weigh-in.

I'm using this weekend as my re-group weekend. I did good yesterday and am determined to do just as well today. I will have to take it one day at a time. Ultimately, I just need to learn to say no to all the invites to go out for dinner or lunch.

Hope everyone is having a great weekend. The weather here has been fabulous.

    Good luck with the fresh start. When I've traveled, the tricks I used was to ensure I had a decent breakfast. I asked for help with dining out by asking if we could go to places that had a decent selection of veggies. I would take walks to explore the area I was in or if the area was blah or iffy, I asked my coworkers if they could show me around. It helped.

    I don't think it's necessary to always say no to dinner invites. Try to find places in town where you can eat well. There's a Thai place in Ithaca that serves this amazing green papaya salad. It's mostly shredded papaya and vinegar, so it can't have many calories (I hope). So whenever someone wants to eat out, I suggest that restaurant. Sushi is another way to have a nice meal out without breaking the Calorie bank.
