1) Try to maintain "normal" eating as much as possible. This week I have tried to eat my "normal"breakfast and lunch.
|Monday's breakfast: cereal, strawberries, peanut butter and milk|
|Monday's Lunch: 1/2 ham and cheese sandwich, apple, carrots/celery, blueberry yogurt|
|Tuesday's breakfast: maple sugar oatmeal, peanut butter, banana, raisins, granola|
Distance: 5.15 miles
Duration: 42 minutes
3) Try to choose "healthier" meals when eating out: Last night Evan, his parents and I went to a restaurant in the North End called Bricco.
There were many, many wonderful options to eat, but I tried to go for a healthier choice. I started with just ONE slice of bread (this was most challenging for me) and a sip or two of wine (just for taste).
A small portion of the appetizer.
and a healthy entree: Grilled Salmon
I passed on dessert, but had a bite or two of Evan's Tiramisu.
4) Try to cook a meal or two. Tonight, Evan and I are making his parents vegtable lasagna (pictures and recipe tomorrow). Lasagna is not the healthiest meal, but preparing it at home ensures a healthier version than the restaurant.
5) Be flexible and have fun! It is not every day you have company or go away, so enjoy your time and understand you can pick up were you left off when your company leaves or you come home from vacation!
Have a GREAT night!!!
