Eating out

Friday, May 24, 2013

The lunch today was fun, but I did eat more than I should have. I had a black bean burger and fries, whereas a salad would have been the better option. Tonight I am having a salad and lentil loaf so that's fairly light. I'm 100 cal. over for the day, but I also am 400 cal. over on exercise for the week! So hopefully that will help balance things out.

Yesterday I did my second weight workout at work and I upped the curl weight to 15 lbs per side. It made me work a lot harder but it is still doable, so I'm going to stick with that weight for a bit. I do need to choose a more difficult ab exercise though. I still have pretty strong abs from bellydance so I may try something on the exercise ball or with weights.

Overall it's been a pretty good week. I am down 2 lbs. from the beginning of the week. I always have a fairly big loss starting out so I can't let that lull me into a sense of having a better handle on my eating than I really do.

    First, 100 calories isn't too bad! If you did it daily, then okay, but I don't think that is bad at all!!!

    Also, sure, maybe a salad was the better option, but to make this a lifestyle change, you are going to have days where that is what sounds good. And I don't think that is bad either! So I hope you enjoyed your lunch!!!
