On the Road Again

Friday, February 15, 2013

Am finally losing again! I work a week on/week off schedule of 12 hour shifts. It was so frustrating losing weight on my off week only to gain it back on my work week. Same pounds over and over again. So the new strategy worked...making sure I did some activity every hour, regulating what I ate at work, logging my foods again and I added a 20 minute brisk walk through the hospital on my lunch break. Wow! I lost 2 pounds on my work week. Yeah! So hopefully I will continue to lose now that I'm off and actually make some progress toward my goal again.

By the way, don't eat the grilled chicken quesadilla at Dennys. I thought...hmmm...a tortilla, some grilled chicken, green peppers...can't be too high. I have the Dennys nutrition info on my computer at home but didn't have it available there. So glad I only ate half! Looked the information up when I got home. 1210 calories!!!! From now on I look it up before I eat it!

    Anyone try the salad dressing spritzers? I tried them for the first time at work and I think they're awesome! Only 1 calorie/spray adds flavor without many calories and without drowning out the flavor of the actual food. They're small bottles so I've thought I may just tuck one in my purse when I go to a restaurant. I don't mind being weird! emoticon

    Great! It is always good to get a positive result. Eating out is always a tricky thing. I ate out yesterday and had a salad that I love at a place that I love. I had them hold the corn and put the dressing on the side. I realized when I was done that the salad was good with just a small portion of the dressing. I guess the less we out the better though.

    Keep it up!
