This morning I wanted chocolate so I had a skinny cow chocolate ice cream sandwich, a banana and a cup of coffee. I'll eat better the rest of the day.

Those Skinny Cow icecream sandwiches are yummy. I chose to give them up, but if you can eat them in moderation, they are good.

We're meeting friends at Red Robin for lunch, which used to be one of my favorite places--not so much these days! Looks like I'll have the "Artic Cod" sandwich w/o tartar sauce for around 460 calories (and an astounding 1800 mg of sodium ). Of course, no fries and plain water to drink.

I used to do the Red Robin burger (with fried egg on top, of course) for 1200 calories and two or three baskets of their fries and probably a few O-rings to boot as well as a chocolate shake--bleech!

Have a great day!

Regards,
Michael

Michael, I used to joke that when I retired, McDonald's stock was going to tank. I was on the road all day with my job, so eating out was almost a necessity, since I never knew where I was going to be at lunchtime. Invariably, I would head for McDonald's, and then you know how it goes. Not only was I eating lunch there, but picking up snacks a couple of times a day. (If you can get TWO pies for a buck, why settle for just one?) Yeah, well, no more of that. Saved myself a bundle by deleting fast food stops from my routine, and not just in calories, but in $$. This morning, I wanted food, so I had whole grain toast with a slick of margarine and plopped an egg on top (open faced sandwich...think McDonald's Egg McMuffin without the extra fat), had a navel orange, and coffee with skim milk.

I rediscovered brussels sprouts today. Haven't had them since I was a kid, and I didn't recall positively hating them at the time, so I bought some to steam. Yep, they're okay. One thing I notice is that food tastes good. When your taste buds have been hammered with cheeseburgers and fries for years, you forget that real food tastes pretty interesting.

Tonight is Lentil and escarole soup. I'm also having a huge baby spinach salad with raw sugar-snap peas and grape tomatoes...

Dinner for tonight was teriyaki salmon with steamed veggies and a heaping glass of lemon water.
finishing the night off with a mug of lemon tea

Today was a cheat day. I switched out my orange and cottage cheese for a cadbury caramel egg and piece of birthday cake :/
life's no fun without the occasional indulgence, right? Especially if it's chocolate and cake

Today's lunch is chicken salad (5oz shredded chicken,1tbs fat free sour cream, 1/2 tbs mayo, green onions, salt/pepper/garlic) scooped up with orange bell pepper strips. It's so delicious!
I've got baby carrots for munching while I finish up work. I find when I'm craving chips, having carrots instead helps satisfy the crunchy craving.
