Eating out...and losing weight

This past weekend I had to work. Both days. From 9am to 11pm at night. And Monday too. (Occasionally this happens with my job. There are also times I get lots of time off, so it all works out in the end. Basically I have a very flexible schedule. This also explains why there haven't been any new blog posts in a couple days!). Anyhow, since I was stuck at work all day, I didn't feel like packing both my lunch and dinner. Instead, I wanted to go out for these meals. But I had a bit of a conundrum, because I had my "important" weigh-in coming up so I had to eat healthy and lose that last niggling pound. Luckily, I work in an area where there are lots of options and it really wasn't difficult for me to make some good, satisfying choices. Here are some of the meals/snacks I had!

Edamame, Spicy Salmon Roll, and Spicy Tuna Sashimi

Steamed chicken and celery dumplings

This Mediterranean Salad Shaker from Whole Foods
Chicken Verona Salad from While Spot (Grapes, cashews, celery, peppers, and chicken)
Yogurt and berry parfait (worked out to 4 points)
Not too bad for restaurant meals. Most of the time it's easier to make good choices when you cook your own food, but it's still nice to know there are options out there :)


  1. There are options out there and good for you on finding and choosing them! Sometimes I talk to people who "know" what is a good choice, but just really want to have it. Hope you get some relief from long hours soon!

  2. Sorry to hear you had so much work over the weekend. OOOH...where did you get the dumplings??? Have a good Monday.
