Bi-weekly family dinner

Wednesday, August 22, 2018

A little worried about the dinner my aunt will be cooking this Saturday, as it will be home made and she has no nutrition values written down for it. I've kinda broken down what I think two of the ingredients might be not 100% on everything until she gets here, and I have no real worries about the fact that we always have a rum and coke cause I know the measurements of rum and I'll be using diet instead of regular coke so no worries there except sodium. I've been doing pretty well tracking everything and Saturday also happens to be my weigh-in day to see how much I've lost. This dinner also hinders my meal plan for next week cause she always leaves the left overs which is fine cause her Shepard's Pie is amazing. I guess I am just going to have to let Saturday fall where it may and just maybe freeze some of the Shepard's Pie. The dessert isn't an issue I can get the nutrition value from whatever pie she brings from the bakery's website. Any ideas or words of wisdom? They would be greatly appreciated. Thanks. emoticon

    Thanks everyone I appreciate the advice and support, I've talked with my mom and we agreed just track the best I can and if I can find the nutrition fine if not just start again the following day! emoticon emoticon

    My rule for pie is, no crust. That’s where all the calories are, but instead of agonizing over one meal simply take the leftovers home and freeze them or give away .One meal is not the whole story.

    Just estimate the best you can, eat a smaller portion and have a sliver of pie. You can’t stress every meal or you won’t make long term changes. Just my opinion. Enjoy:)
