Day of rest?!?!? Journaling Day 4

Saturday, September 19, 2015

So after reading an article yesterday I came to realize I never have a rest day (from workouts). So I made it my goal to take it easy today. So there isn't much to report or talk about. Still hit 15,000 steps between two walks. and did a couple mini work outs because I am part of challenges (skinny jeans and plateau busters). So that's about it. Have to start allowing myself these kinds of days...it's going to be winter soon (and work will ramp up and Holidays will arrive) and it will be more difficult to fit in the amount of fitness that I have been doing the last couple months. Need to learn to dial back the calories if I am "forced" to dial back the workouts.

Last night got scary...ate at an Italian Restaurant. Enough said right?
Still came in under my daily calorie amount, but that is a food ethnicity that can TAKE YOU DOWN (especially if you are vegetarian!) Pesto was apparently a bad choice as was Caesar Dressing. Ah well, you live (and enter food into your tracker) and then learn right??!!??

Carry on my friends! Hope the first half of the weekend was good to you! :)

    Restaurants are so HARD in general. I feel your pain. Good for you for sticking within your calorie range anyway and for making it a learning experience. :)

    No foods are on the do not eat list. As long as you figure the calories etc. into you daily range, you can eat the "ethnic" foods or a craving that you have. I know the dressing and the roll and most the other foods there are way high in sodium and carbs. Plan ahead and you will do just fine. Good luck!! emoticon emoticon
