My trip to Toronto was a lot of fun! Got caught up with friends...laughs galore. Too bad the weather was so awful. It would have been nice to see a bit more of the city at night.
Also managed a side trip to visit our daughter at university and take her and her boyfriend out for a Mexican dinner. Yummy!
Travelling is a fact of life and I was a bit concerned about how I would manage eating so many meals in a restaurant. My SP friends suggested leaving half the food, selecting high veg meals etc. Friday lunch was the first challenge. On the road, stopped at applebees. Selected one of their menu selections advertised as less than 550 calories. Chicken portabello dijon. I even asked the waitress to put an extra helping of veg and keep the potatoes. Not sure the total calorie count but since the original was 478, I am sure I lowered it with that substitution.
Dinner, I selected spinach salad that was all spinach, a bit of carrot and asked for the house vinegarette dressing. Entree was grilled salmon ( ate 3/4 of it about 6 oz I think). all the veggies and half of the baked potato.
Breakfast was a fried egg, one slice of bacon on a ww english muffin , a banana and a glass of orange juice. I could have eaten at least 2 more ,,,but didnt!!
Supper that night was 2 chicken enchiladas...very good. fresh roasted chicken, 1/2 c rice, some black beans. ONe strawberry margarita,..and I had a dessert..a corn flan.
Logged every thing as best I could..It appears I was over both days by about 200 cal each day.
I did manage to exercise both days and thats a good thing.
Weigh day tomorrow, so I will see. However, I feel I managed the challenge of the weekend quite well overall.
