Weekends reverse my progress every time.

Sunday, January 13, 2013

Three pounds went away during the last week. Two of them came back today. I'm hoping they're temporary, but I'm pretty sure I know where I got them...
Last night the Domestic Partner and I went to a restaurant that we like but seldom visit, because it's Texas barbecue, and let's face it, we're not eating barbecue for our health!
I had salmon cooked in the smoker (no added fat) & the domestic partner had roasted chicken: both good choices, but DP got a side of pulled pork and we each had a big chunk of their cornbread, which I wish I had never tasted because it is THAT, I didn't realize that my dinner had mashed potatoes on the side, but they were delish & I ate them, and the vegetables are now grilled with butter instead of steamed, & I ate them, too...
My calories for the day came in only slightly above plan, but it was much more carb & fat than I'm used to. There was probably a lot of salt in the food, too (ya think?).
Today I hope to rein in the eating, although the DP will want to eat out after yoga. The place we go after yoga has more vegetable-based dishes, but it's still restaurant food & doesn't support weight loss. Portion control will be important.

    Weekends always derail me. More disciplined at work, somehow I don't get enough fruit and veg on the weekend or water.

    Avoiding eating out is, to me, paramount in reaching your goals. Portions are too large, here is too much sodium, and in most cases even healthy foods are cooked or served in an unhealthy manner.
    Even at that you still managed to have a weight loss instead of a gain. That, small as it was, is progress. Put it aside and go on from here.
