Things did not go as planned yesterday. We arrived at the party to find a spread of typical party foods: chips and dip, cheeses, deli meats, mini-quiches, and a table of desserts. There really wasn't anything substantial that could be considered a meal. My husband and I got a small plate of food and then talked about possibly just having a snack and then eating a real meal afterwards. We should have followed through on that plan. The longer we stayed at the party, the hungrier we got and the more trips back to the food we made. By the time we left I'd consumed three mini-plates of food, two desserts and three glasses of wine. The worst part about it was that none of it really tasted that good. I wasn't satisfied and I felt awful. :(
I'm trying not to beat myself up over this, but it is hard. I knew what I was getting in to, yet I still was unable to control myself. I'm still trying to figure out what causes me to succeed in certain situations and fail in other situations. I know I can't be perfect all the time, but I wish that I could be a little more consistent.
Well, I'm going on a walk with a friend in a little while. Hopefully that will do some good for my mind and body. Today is a new day.
