My Wonderful Spark Friend !!
Remember just because it is a Holiday Weekend doesn't mean you can't have a good time and stay on track... just watch be sure to weight the hamburger meat out to 3-4 ounces, layer it with plenty of veggies like lettuce, cucumbers, onions, radishes or your favorites!! Try adding some grilled vegetables to the list... Family BBQ's can be the greatest way to get your family on board to trying fresh grilled vegetables and "Yes" even grilled "Fruits"... Try gilled fruit and veggie kabobs... along with your favorite salsa. Even visit Chef Meg for some of her favorite recipes for grilling!!
"Memorial Day Weekend Blessings!!"
Remember to Plan for those desserts to, no more than 1/8th of a slice if you put it on your tracker!! You should have plenty of room for it!! Let's be Happy with our choices, not sorry about it later!

Donât completely eliminate foods that you actually LOVE.
Chances are that if you completely cut out foods you absolutely love, youâll spring back into old eating habits pretty quickly. Unless your doctor informs you of a health condition that requires food elimination, or unless you choose to eliminate a food for personal reasons, let go of the idea of âbadâ foods and learn to enjoy them in moderation instead. Pasta? Rice? A piece of chocolate cake? Enjoying these once in a while wonât derail all of your hard work and they arenât âunhealthyâ in proper portions. It is all about portion control...
Things do get a bit tricky with this âdonâtâ though. You have to figure out the best method of non-elimination for you. For example, if you keep your favorite food in the house and know you arenât able to control how much you eat, then donât keep it in the house. Instead, enjoy it only when you go out.
