It’s been three weeks since my last update but not for lack of interest. We were on a cruise and it took me a few days to get back on track thanks to illness and a lack of groceries. Thursday I got back in the swing of things and rounded out a complete week when you add days the pre-cruise days in.
Eating On Vacation
I have to admit it was nice to eat non-packaged foods for a while but cruise ship menu’s don’t always have the healthiest choices. There’s always one lower calorie/fat option but it typically wasn’t something I liked. There were definitely too many carbs between the bread, pasta and desserts as you’ll see if the results below.
I’ve been enjoying the portion-controlled breakfasts…
and of course, dessert….
In addition to the two week vacation, we ate out a couple of times last weekend with family visiting for my father-in-law’s funeral. I ordered using the tips from Nutrisystem and feel I did very well there. Of course, restaurants normally add way too much salt to food.
Because of all this eating away from home, I was thrilled to only be up 1.2 pounds at weigh-in yesterday. I know that by staying on track both with nutrition and exercise, I’ll get rid of that and lose more soon.
