I am alomost through week one(this go around) of my lifestyle change and overall I am very proud of how I have done so far. I have been excersing and trying to make better food choices and writing down everything I eat & drink. I am concerned about my lunches though.
Last week I mostly ate Lean Cuisine meals for lunch since they are so convinent. Today I brought a Healthy Choice Sweet Asian Potstickers, but it was too spicy for me. ( I have never liked spicy food, but since having my gallbladder removed, I CANT eat it, or I am miserable) So after my 1.30 mile walk during lunch
, I ran to Subway. I thought I was making the right choices (lite mayo, cucumbers, lettuce, salt/pepper, a tad of oil & vin with turkey & ham on flatbread) But WOW...once I got back to my computer & started figuring, it was about 500 calories!!! I know the frozen meals are bad b/c of the sodium, but if its 500 cal vs 300 for a frozen meal, which one is truely better?
Also, if anyone has ideas for lunch other than the frozen meals, please let me know. I will bring leftovers from dinner throughout the week when I can, but other than that, I have no ideas. I work full time & my son has football for 2 hours 3 nights a week, so I am normally not home till 8:30, then we do dinner & get my son ready for bed. Then its time for me to do homework (online class). So I do not have much time to prepare things for lunch. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks & Good Luck to all!!!!
