Doing better today food wise. Knowing that I still haven't gotten to the store for snacks, I split my muffin in two. Half of that was breakfast along with the till too bitter coffee, and was nibbled on most of the morning. Around 10:30, the other half of the muffin was ... well, devoured. But I know why - I was distracted by work and caught myself mindlessly eating. A-ha. Another thing to watch.

After lunch, I still have about 60% of my calories and fat, and 48% of my protein available to me. This will help since we are going out to dinner tonight to celebrate someone's birthday. I have already looked at the menu, and I think I have some good choices to make, even with the cream sauce on them.

The one thing I think that's really going to suck for me is drinking. I don't normally drink sodas or alcoholic beverages when dining out, but will zero in on strawberry lemonade. And I usually drink that like a fish. While there's no fat involved, it's got calories. Too many calories in each and every glass. *sigh* So it looks like I need to focus on controlling thrist a bit and using water more, while I enjoy 1 GLASS of strawberry lemonade.

In ohter news (yes, there are other things I talk about!), the weather outside is frightful. Well, not yet, but it's supposed to be a dozy out there later. I am ever so thankful for Metrolink, and will likely be cursing later tonight in the traffic going to my friend's dinner.

Try some flavored waters... you get the sweetness of juice with a lot less calories.. SoBe Lifewater... Snapple AntiOxident water...etc etc.. there's TONS out there. I always find it hard to drink plain water but I tend to drink more of the flavored ones. Some have Splenda or Aspartame but many are just low in reg. sugar.

Problem is they don't typically have drinks like that in restaurants. I have no problem with water, but sometimes would like a bit... more.

I know what you mean. Kinda hard to drag bottles around with you :)

But you can carry these around! I've tried a couple of them, they're tasty!

SoBe LifeWater - Not on sale at the Targets around here - $1.39 + CRV.
WaterSensations - Target had their version of the Crystal Light stuff on sale, so I'm trying those instead. We'll see how that works.

Ther's also those Crystal Light packets to go, or, for a cheaper option, buy the normal sizes and parcel them out.

Target has their version (cheaper!) on sale, so I just picked up a slew of them. We'll see...

Target has SoBe Lifewater on sale until the 21st.. $1.00 each when you buy 10 and you get a $5 Target gift card! That's a great (and cheap) way to try 'em out ;)

Diet Dr. Pepper is closer to its full-sugar counterpart than any other diet/regular combination I know; if you like Dr. P., you won't be disappointed here.

Try club soda with lemon, lime, whatever. 'Tain't sweet, but it works for me.

But again, Diet Dr. Pepper is not likely to be had at restaurants. =( The club soda trick my work though.
