Stick to your guns over the weekend!

"Its the weekend and we always go out to dinner!  What do I do????"

If you are going out to dinner, plan ahead!  If you know where you are going look at their menu on line and pick low cal foods ahead of time so you know what to eat when you get there.  If you can't do that, ask how fish, chicken, meat and/or veggies are prepared.  Most places will grill with no oil if you ask and they'll steam veggies.  If not, just try and leave some food on your plate, don't clean it!  If you have a salad ask them not to put cheese, croutons or dressing on the salad, ask for the light dressing on the side.  You can also ask for lemon or oil & vinegar as dressing.

If having cocktails, try to limit your alcohol consumption to 1-2.  Its calorie dense and lowers our inhibitions which causes us to over eat!  Best alcohol?  Vodka, scotch, tequila with soda water, diet tonic or on the rocks.  Another option is red wine, even though its higher in calories, its good for your heart.

If none of these options work and you over do it, get back on track with your next meal and get extra cardio in.  You definitely don't want to undo all the hard work you've done and sacrifices you've made!
