I couldn’t go to my regular weigh in today because of a work conflict, BUT, I think I did great this week making healthier choices. I refrained from weighing myself at home because I am still in the zone, and I want to stay there, so another week of making better choices will not hurt me in the long run.
Here was my dilemma today. I brought a healthy lunch of my homemade macaroni and cheese, but I had a lunch meeting which meant ordering from a restaurant and having the food delivered. Two things popped into my head. The first one was:
- I don’t have to weigh in for another week, so it probably would be no big deal if I went off my healthy eating plan.
- I could order something and eat only half?
- I could stick with what I brought for lunch and know exactly how many calories I was going to eat.
The one that won out?? I chose number 3!! That is a first for me. It was too hard for me to pick something that was healthy on the menu, or didn’t have hidden calories somewhere, so I stuck with my lunch and it was fine. No one else cared that I was eating my own lunch, so it worked out great. I’m glad I chose that in the long run, because my usual that I would get from that restaurant is the chicken finger dinner, which with fries is about 1500 calories!! I feel much better about my decision and I can just continue on! Wish me luck on next week’s weigh-in, I will keep you posted!
