Take a look at the menu for this place- YUMMY!!! I planned for 2 glasses of wine at dinner (I also had one at the theater) so that left me with 25pts for food. I started with a tossed salad with balsamic dressing, totally avoided the bread basket (so hard to do!) and then my sister and I split 2 dishes between us. We had the Diablo burger with fries and the Lemon Herb Chicken with Asparagus and Mashed Potatoes. I have no idea how many points I used- but it was worth it! I counted the wine as my dessert and didn't even look at the menu.
Next, I have to plan for a big barbecue this weekend. I know I can control myself- I'll just limit the snacking to the veggie tray and eat watermelon for dessert. If I can resist the chips/dips/cheese platter/sweets- the biggest "problem" will be the main course! I'll update on how I do after that.
This week for Project 10 I want to talk about my smaller goals for getting healthy. In addition to losing at least 60lbs, I want to make other changes in my life that will help me to reach and maintain that goal. In no particular order they are:
- Cut out diet soda- This is a BIG one. I am a diet soda addict. Some people stop for coffee on their way into work. I stop for a large diet coke at the drive through. Usually I'll drink 2 of those in a day. I know it's bad, I know I need to drink more water. It's something I have to work on.
- Incorporate more whole foods and eat less processed foods in my diet- self explanatory
- Eat less Fast Food- Even on Weight Watchers I've been eating fast food of some sort at least once a week. I make sure to fit it in to my points- but regardless, it's not healthy.
- Make exercise a habit. I long to be one of those people that doesn't feel "right" without exercising. I want to be a runner. I want to have endurance, stamina and the lean, lithe body of an athlete. (Okay- so that last one is a bit over the top- genetics DO play a part in my body shape!)
Hopefully with a little will power and modifications to my schedule I'll be able to accomplish all of the above!
