Planning ahead

Monday, July 25, 2011

So yeah. I have friends now, more than I ever had before, and better ones than I ever had before. And they invite me out to eat...a lot. What's a girl who watches her weight to do? PLAN AHEAD. I'm currently in the process of going through common chain restaurants and writing down the lowest-calorie menu items that I will actually eat to store in my purse in case I'm out with friends and they spontaneously decide to take a trip to Arby's. And for when the calorie counts aren't available on the restaurant's website? I take a look at the menu and pick out some things that are grilled, in marinara sauce, or that just plain would be healthier. You have to do a little planning ahead to make it work.

And that goes for what I eat at home, too. If, the night before, I make a list of everything I'm going to eat that day and put it into my SparkPeople nutrition tracker, and then I'm less likely to eat something that's bad for me that I didn't plan out. Also...variation is key. I'm going to get bored eating the same one or two breakfasts over and over again.
