It has been a hot week so I have had to go out walking earlier in the morning.
I wear my hat and take a bottle of Perrier with me.
I managed to walk 50 minutes on 5 of the days
1 1/2 hours on two other occasions with a friend.
Two lunches out this week with friends gave me the opportunity to study the items offered and try to make some sensible choices from the menus.
Tossed green salad with eggs on Monday and water
celebrating a reunion of former co-workers.
3 small appetizer sized Fish tacos on small corn tortillas
the day I met and walked 1 1/2 hours with a friend.
(the fish was fried and about the size of an egg on each taco served with oodles of sliced cabbage and mango with a very small amount of dressing)
Eating a higher point count lunch
meant that I would need to eat a lower point count dinner to keep within my WW daily range.
I have been satisfied with meals and have not had any snacks.
Homemade lemonade has been my go to drink this week to keep hydrated.
I made a tasty stir fry one night for dinner.
Green and yellow peppers
thinly sliced lean chicken breasts
I opted for only 1/2 cup of rice to keep my point count down.
I chew my food slowly
putting my fork and knife down between bites to take longer dining.

Are you making your mealtimes as attractive as possible?
Are you sitting at the table focusing on the food and the table setting
instead of eating in front of the TV?
Kathleen Tessaro has a new novel out and I am really enjoying it.
I love her books...The Perfume Collector was so well written.
