Woo-hoo! I'm down 2 pounds!
This week has been especially challenging. Hubby's entire family came to our house for dinner Saturday and it was Homecoming at our church on Sunday. Homecoming. At a church in the South. There was ham, fried chicken, and an assortment of vegetables in casserole form. Not to mention 2 tables covered in desserts.
So, I had to come up with a plan: I brought green beans, broccoli casserole, corn casserole, and whole grain rice. I knew I could eat my side dishes and stay on plan. Then, I had one or two tiny pieces of turkey. For dessert, I had 2 bites of what was on hubby's plate. I can't always change my circumstances, so I just have to come up with a plan for where I am.
This weekend will be my most challenging yet. Frankly, I can get a little anxious just thinking about it!
Hubby and I are going out of town for our anniversary. (yeah!) We're having dinner at a Murder Mystery Dinner house one night - food: buffet of Italian food! What to do?? The rest of the time we'll be hiking and walking around some national parks, but, I do worry about meals and snacks. I'm going to bring some fruit and 100 cal packs for snacks, but when we're eating at local places, I won't really know if there's any healthy options until we're inside looking at the menu.
So, a week in advance, I am worrying about next week's weigh in. Well, that and I'll be retaining water at that time, also. Good times!!
Any traveling tips you'd like to share?
I hope you had a good week!
