I had pulled pork for my afternoon snack today. I wasn't intending to have it when I planned my food for the day. I also had not planned to walk over four miles today. I was hot and tired and ready for some protein!
I ordered the pulled pork to go, no sauce, and took it home so I could weight out a 4oz portion for myself and not the 3/4 of a pound I could have easily eaten. Dang, pulled barbecued pork is always so good - it doesn't need any of those cloying sauces. It didn't even need salt. The natural taste was very satisfying without additions. It made me wonder why I do not eat it more often.
I had planned a different snack and had to adjust for the pork and let go of an avocado, some yogurt and some protein powder to make it fit into my meal plan today. I was willing to make the switch because it did not alter the final percentages of my carbs/protein/fats. I am grateful I was willing to weigh it and stick with that serving.
It has been another good week. Next week I will be traveling up north. I will have a kitchen for three days and access to one for two more days so eating out will be minimal. Exercise will be all walking. I hope the snow will be gone from day one so that I can enjoy the early spring in New York and not suffer with the last pangs of their abundant winter.
Taking it all one day at a time.
