'Nuther Lesson Learned
Wednesday, August 15, 2012
Okay...when you're planning to eat out, MAKE SURE you've recorded the correct nutrition figures for the items you're interested in. Made that mistake with Chili's today.
For the record, the Caribbean Salad with Grilled Chicken is awesome and has really good numbers, even with the dressing! Only, I recorded the numbers for the side of guacamole, not the full appetizer of guac, salsa & chips! Had a slight shock when I put it in the tracker.
However, what went right was the sodium. My friend and I split everything, and managed to keep the sodium reasonable. Even with that as only one of my meals, I still barely topped 1500mg for the day.
Note to self: if someone brings an unexpected birthday cake
to Bible study (had no idea anyone was having a bday), and you haven't updated your tracker yet for the evening, skip the cake. ('twas another mistake today, with both errors bringing me nearly 1000 cal over budget.
I can't stay up long enough to exercise off those calories today, so I'll have to chalk it up to a lesson learned, and keep plugging away.
