The past week I had several days in which I didn't count calories because I went out to restaurants where calorie counts are not available. I didn't go crazy but I did have a hamburger Monday for a girls happy hour. I had my favorite butternut squash quesadilla Thursday for another girls happy hour. I had chips and snacks and 4 beers Sunday at a BBQ at my house. The good news is I didn't gain any weight that week. Of course I didn't loose any either. I've been good at organizing events not centered on eating/drinking, but hadn't seen some of my girlfriends or friends in a while so I felt I needed the socializing and I got it.

This week I'm back to being strict on calorie counts. Next week is the scary change, our CSA deliveries start which means I'm going to have to start cooking again. I love cooking. But I love cooking to please which usually means butter, cheese, etc. My fiance understands that this time it's going to be different. I have a new wok I haven't even used so I will likely be stir frying lots of veggies.

    That is great that you didn't gain any weight!

    My friends & I are drinkers. When we get together, a few drinks can easily add on close to 1000 extra calories.

    It's not easy to stay on track. *sigh* emoticon

    It's hard to arrange for socializing without eating/drinking. So few of my friends want to meet at the gym or go for a walk!!

    Thanks for the orchid goodie: so pretty!

    Sounds like a good time to try out some new recipes such as those in the Spark Cookbook that focus on providing the cook to please along with the healthy side. (Sometimes it's as simple as realizing we don't need a lot of butter or cheese, just enough to make it tasty and satisfying, and adding the zest through herbs and spices.)
