I'm going to need it. I have a few hurdles to jump over this weekend. First up: another holiday party tonight. I'm feeling a little vulnerable after a stressful day and a light lunch. My plan is to go home to eat a snack and decompress for a few minutes before heading out.
I would really like to indulge in a glass (or two) of wine, but if I do that I'm afraid my inhibitiions will be lowered and I will make unhealthy food choices. Also, I am hoping to get in another 5-mile run tomorrow, which might not go very well after drinking the night before.
I'm already feeling slightly deprived just thinking about sacrificing my glass of wine and treats. That feeling is what causes me to cave and completely overdo it. I need to approach this party with a positive attitude. Perhaps I should just allow myself to eat what I want and trust that I will make the right choices...
