99% of the time I bring my own lunch to work, but yesterday I wasn’t really digging what I brought and I remembered I had a gift card to Panera Bread in my wallet, so I decided on getting that for lunch. It’s about a 15 minute walk from my office, so I took that as an opportunity to get in some exercise at the same time.
The great thing about Panera is that the nutritional information is on-line helping you make a better choice. What did I pick? I chose their new Thai Chicken salad with peanut sauce. The total calories WITH the dressing was only 380 calories and 15 grams of fat! The verdict? It was awesome! It was a little spicy, had roasted veggies, with a light vinaigrette dressing.
This is the description of the salad:
It’s layered with tender, all-natural chicken, Thai spiced cashews and fire-roasted vegetables, with hints of lime and cilantro. Tossed in our Thai Chili Vinaigrette and finished with a peanut sauce, it’s like heading to Thailand for lunch, without the passport.
Now on to my 2nd week weigh in…… -2.4!!!
So, with my 1st week weigh in at -5.6. that’s 8 pounds in 2 weeks!!!
What have I been doing? Tracking my food every day at www.myfitnesspal.com, the calories I’ve been eating are between 1,250 and 1,500 calories a day and I’ve done some form of exercise every day. I’ve done Taebo, Exercise on Demand, walking, and elliptical.
Needless to say I am SUPER excited!!! I hope I can keep it going!!!
Have a super day!! 🙂
