Being prepared!

Ok, so tonight is my first official night at my new job at Target. Although I'm excited to be moving around and being active while I work, since my shifts range from 4 - 11 p.m., I'm nervous on how I'm going to be able to eat healthy and make good dinner choices. I have Starbucks within Target, Taco Bell next door, and Wendy's across the street, so I decided to find NI so I can make good choices (just in case). My plan is to bring my dinner on days that I know I will get a break. There will be other days (like today) that I won't get a meal break because I'm only scheduled for 4 hours. My plan is to always have a plan! But just in case, I need good choices.

SO, I am armed and ready with the information I need for several choices written in my food journal.

I'm participating in DIETSODADIVA's Holiday Challenge and I'm psyched! I also made some long-term goals in my journal today for weight loss. It looked good to see a plan that would have me under 200 lbs. by January 2010 (worst case scenario/slow loss). Woo HOO!

Well girl, looks like you have yourself a very good plan! You certainly know what you should do, now just make sure you stick to it and you'll do just fine. Good luck at the new job! :o)

Congrats on the new job.

Just pack your meal(s)/snacks... always be prepared for work. Maybe invest in a lunchbox.

I'm excited you're doing the challenge... and I think making long time goals is great. It'll be nice once you start marking off those milestones.

Congrats on the job! I also love your plan. I have to have a plan or I am in trouble...its when I am without food for extended periods that I can make REALLY bad choices. I hear Taco bell has a fresco (sp?) menu that is WW friendly.

Hope you have a great weekend!
