Road Warrior Diet – Strategy For Reaching The 170s

Packing a few LCHF friendly snacks (which can double as a light meal) for my drive to TX.

Packing a few LCHF friendly snacks (which can double as a light meal) for my drive to TX.

I’m driving to Texas today to help Dr. Mom move. She’s coming to live near me in the Commonwealth of Virginia (Yeah, Virginia is to uppity to be a regular state).

So blogging will be light, although I’m hoping to take a lot of photos, especially of amazingly unhealthy truck stop food that I come across (but won’t eat).

I’m driving for about 2.5 days so yesterday I hit the grocery store for my low carb, high fat (LCHF) road snacks and/or light meals. Read More


Weekly Weigh-In: Whew!

aug 17After the chocolate cake fiasco, I thought I’d gained 1-2 lbs. Turns out I’m down 0.2 lbs…so basically even.

The big challenge this week is my trip to Texas.  I’m hitting the road tomorrow, so I’m spending the day prepping my snacks for the road trip. I’ll have cherry tomatoes, berries, nuts, and plain yogurt and granola for snacks.  For my meals, I’m packing up salads and my home-made dressings.  For the protein, I’ll more than likely stop off at some local joint for a bun-less burger.

Weight Watchers allows me 37 points daily. I also have the 49 weekly allowance points to tap into if needed. If I pack the right foods, I can avoid dipping into the 49. Just to be safe, I’m researching the points value of various items at fast food joints. If I have to stop at a Mickey D’s, at least I’ll know how to spend my points.

I’m staying with family, so once in Texas, I’ll prepare most of my own meals. I’m even looking up nearby gyms I can visit.

With some careful planning, I can stay on plan and maybe come home lighter.
