Healthy You Challenge Week 5

Its Tuesday and that means its the Healthy You Challenge checkin. Since last Monday, I have lost 4 pounds! Pretty awesome in my opinion. Last Monday I was 177.6 and yesterday I weighed in at 173.6. Granted last weekend I was up due to gyros and bloating on behalf of TOM, but its still a loss.

Still not much to report on the exercise front. Still struggling. One of these weeks I will be able to say that I met my goal of 1X a week, but right now I am still not meeting that personal challenge.

Speaking of challenges, tomorrow will be a challenge for me. It is one of my coworkers birthday, and everyone wants to go out for lunch to this place that has really really good breakfast food. Normally I avoid going out to lunch at all costs, but this coworker is a friend and I would feel rude to not go. Obviously I will not be getting the strawberry waffles with whipped cream that I would normally get (and with a side of bacon). I know I can find some healthy choices, and plan to look at the menu online tonight to prepare myself. However, tomorrow is a weigh in day, and tomorrow is usually when I have a meal replacement shake. Problems because no matter what I get, even healthy, I will probably still be up for my weigh in. Also I will have to switch around my breakfast option to accomodate for my lunch because a meal replacement shake is not the best option and doesnt leave me much for dinner. In any case, I will make it work. It will just be a challenge.

I guess it does go to show that you can go out to eat and interact like a normal person and not blow your points, calories, or whatever it is that you choose to follow. Its all about the planning.

You will do great at breakfast! How about an egg white omelet (sp) with lots of veggies or oatmeal? Can you weigh in before breakfast? Drink lots of water/tea and enjoy. Congrats on more lost!

That's an awesome loss! Well done you.
You're right it's all about planning, when you want to go out for a meal. You can do this, I'm sure.
