Weigh-in and Eating on the Go

I'm traveling for a job interview today and tomorrow, so I have to eat on the go. So far, I'm doing well! I had my favorite breakfast at home today, which is whole wheat toast with peanut butter and jam. I know, I know, jam has a lot of sugar in it. When I'm done with this jar, I'm going to try to make my own with frozen berries and agave nectar. I had a layover around 11, and I found myself a Subway and had a sandwich. I typically don't like Subway but when your options are bagels, pizza, donuts, or Subway, you eat Subway!

When I got to my hotel, I had some extra time, so I went to the fitness center! It felt great to workout again. My cold is definitely almost gone. I had some reading to do to get ready for tomorrow's interviews, so I brought that with me and did 35 minutes on the elliptical. After my workout, I weighed myself, and I'm happy to report I was at 160 pounds! That was the middle of the day and fully clothed! My goal for Christmas is 157, so I am well on my way! PLUS, that means I've lost at least 8 pounds since September, and I'm happy about that.

Tonight is dinner out at an Italian restaurant. According to myfooddiary, I have 959 calories left to reach my lose 1 pound per week total. I don't plan to have wine because I'm still taking some cold medicine, so that should save calories. Their salads look great, so I'll definitely start with those, and hopefully have a fish or chicken entree. The menu had a few chicken dishes on there that looked good, but I'm hoping there's a fish special. I'll skip dessert but I will most likely have one piece of bread. That should keep me satisfied but in check!

Hope everyone is doing well in their health journeys!
