Monday, August 27, 2012

My husband and I went to Door County for our 27th wedding anniversary and while I was a bit anxious about how I was going to stay on track for eating right, I told myself to relax and just enjoy the time away. I had packed a picnic lunch, but there were no rest stops along the way so we ended up stopping at Arby's so that was the first test. I went with the chicken salad sandwich, ate only part of one piece of the bread, took only a few the fries and gave the rest to my husband and had a diet soda. I didn't enter calories while I was gone, no access to a computer, and tried to make sure I did enough walking each day. The only day I know I went way over was the 24th of Aug, but since we went out for a special meal that night, I was going to enjoy every minute and taste of it. So, what I learned from being away is that you don't have to log every single thing you eat, you just need to be aware, stop eating when you are no longer hungry, eat just a little of the things that you love but are not good for you, you can make healthy choices and choose smaller servings even when eating out and learn to enjoy each bite (fewer than before) so you don't become obsessed with the amount of calories you are consuming. I had lot's of side salads with vinegarette and a cup of soup or piece of grilled chicken or fish and it filled me up. Stay strong everyone! WE CAN DO THIS!
