Good call on the chicken skewers! This is a sit-down place, but I'll look for something like that on the menu. Exactly what I need. Beef and broccoli is good too, but sometimes they put sauce all over it. I'll have to check! I wish this was a place I knew, haha. You'll find your balance - you know that 300 calories is too low; do you maybe feel like something is on your mind keeping you all or nothing? You and your doctor will work it out. Congrats on the 30 lb. loss!
Oooooh, I didn't think of lemon chicken. Good call! I'll check it out. Is Cantonese spicy? Unfortunately I can't handle spice (I wish I could, it'd be easy to replace flavor from salt with flavor from spice that way).
Hope that shoulder feels better soon!!!! South Beach is something I wish I could stick too, but too many foods I don't like on that diet, haha! I bet you'll kill it. Let me know how the calorie balance works out for you!! When I first lost here on Fitday, I found logging my balance to be better than just logging calories, because some days I exercised more or less and it was good to know what the overall number was. -3500 should be a pound lost, -7,000 should be two pounds lost. It almost never works exactly that way, but let me know how you like it!!
Welcome back!!!!!! Beautiful pic and beautiful edit!
Great goals! Going to Ireland sounds like FUN for her!
Goals are looking good!!
I like the determination of your kale, haha. I'm going to try to channel it
For me: Eye appointment at 10:30 this morning. I'm blind as a bat, and my right eye has gotten noticeably worse fairly quickly. I'm hopeful that today's appointment will get me a newer, better prescription. I probably won't get new contacts in time for my long drive on Thursday (and part of that driving at night, when I really notice it, ugh) but it was the soonest I could get an appointment. On my exercise docket today is twenty minutes of cardio and 20 minutes of ab work. Oh boy. Getting ready for a burning tummy! The Turbo ab workout is rough.
Have a great day everyone!! I'm off to do some stretching, my shoulders feel really tight
