Dining Out

Today’s topic was about Dining Out on WW. 
For me this has been mostly easy for me–as long as I do my homework before!!
The biggest tip was that we need to make a Plan when we eat out. 
There are 6 tools we can use to calculate:
-Dining Out companion
-Complete Food companion
-WW etools online
-Points Plus calculator
-Online nutrition info for the restrurant
-Pocket guidelists
I have found all of these helpful when I am planning to eat out. If you can’t find it in one of these tools then you break down the meal by ingredients and calculate that way. 
You also have to ask yourself is this a splurge meal and keep honest track!!!  
Also, Karen reminded us to not be afraid to tell the waiter that you wanna eat Heart Healthy for a healthier option. 
Quote of the Day:
“Know before you go.” 

I have learned from experience that truly is the KEY!!

About Carman

36 year old military wife of 18 years and stay at home mom to 4 incredible kids (3 girls ages 17, 11, 11 and our son is 6). After my 4th, and final baby, I decided I wanted to be more active, healthier, happier, and to be an example to my kids. I joined Weight Watchers and started using the Points Plus program to learn portion control, moderation, and develop healthier habits. I also used the dietSNAPS app to track my meals and it was such a life changer for me to literally *see* what I was putting in my body! Cyndi, Lexy and I created this blog to be accountability partners and that has been a huge key to this journey! I love to cook and I love converting my favorite recipes into a healthier version for my family to enjoy! I love the after effects of exercising :) I love challenging myself to fitness goals to change things up and in doing so I have run numerous 5K/10K's, several half marathons, one full 26.2 marathon, and a Tough Mudder. I love circuit training, weight training, and running sprints. My goal is to inspire others to take their health seriously, and to show how small changes can lead to big results.
