Weekend Workout

Happy Saturday! I just love the weekends. I don't even mind that it is all rainy and cold! My friend last night told me I must be praying harder than he is because for some reason this area hasn't been touched by snow. It is odd how it doesn't feel like winter, but you know I am not complaining.

A few things from the weekend...
- Netflix on my phone is the best thing that ever happened to my cardio. Time FLIES when you are captivated by good TV.
- I went to CPK last night and had a DELICIOUS salad. The grilled veggie salad with chicken is VERY tasty. I ordered the half and had the dressing on the side. CPK is one of those places that can be a little on the scary side when it comes to nutrition facts, but they now offer their nutrition facts online. I think I get a little too excited when restaurants do this. It makes me feel prepared when I know the best items to order! If you know where you are going out to eat for a meal, check out the nutrition facts beforehand. It's worth doing so! You'll be able to make a smart choice that won't throw off your diet completely. You can see the nutrition facts for CPK HERE.
-I am still LOVING my Lose It app. If you haven't checked it out yet, you should. I have been really diligent at keeping track of everything this week, and I was reminded again what an amazing difference it makes when I journal.
- My Saturday workouts make me oh so happy. Today I got in some cardio and some lifting which felt like a great end to a good week of workouts.

60 mins of intervals on the elliptical. I actually planned on running today, but EVERY single treadmill was taken. Ugh.

Saturdays really are the greatest, aren't they? I hope you have fabulous weekend plans. Do you ever check the nutrition facts of the restaurants that you are going to eat at? Do you have any favorite healthy choices at the restaurants you love? I usually go with the salad options with some chicken for added protein.

If I know where we are going to eat, I will always pull up the menu online to check it out and see if they have nutrition stats. If not, I try to go with a salad with lean protein and dressing on the side.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

I always look at NI before eating somewhere if I can, if not, I guesstimate using my experience or what I know from similar restaurants or cuisines.

I find that most of the time when I order a salad, that if it's a really good salad, most of the time I don't even want the dressing, which I always order on the side.
