I did not handle the holiday parties at work very well.
Everyday for 12 days before the vacation people brought goodies to school.
For the first few days I just ignored them and I did not eat.
But people really got insulted that I did not participate and eat the things they brought.
I was like I personally insulted them.
So I would go and just take a taco, a cookie or something.
Then the last 2 days I was so busy I did not eat breakfast so I was hungry (mistake)I was stressed out and I ate the sweets.
So now next challenge
Every Christmas Eve we get together at my sister-in-laws.
My husband makes the fajitas, chicken wings and I take salad and veg tray.
I have stopped making Christmas Cookies because I can not stay away from them.
My daughters are old enough and they make the cookies. I try to stay away.
But the cookies and the Christmas candies are so good.
I do not want to deny myself but I need some help.
If I have just one cookie it turns to two, three, four until I have eaten tooooooo many.
I need a plan
1. I will eat some yogurt before I go so I am not hungry.
2. I will drink water and not diet soda or any mixed drinks
3. I will keep my plate full of carrots to nibble on.
4. I will stay out of the kitchen.
What more can I do?
What are you going to do to handle the holiday parties?
