Couldn't we do the Living the Good Life food tracking challenge in a week OTHER than my birthday week?!?!?!?
This is ACTUALLY a very good thing --- I've learned that how you handle the "special" days is really important in developing that "it's-not-a-diet-it's-a-lifest
I get to choose where my friend Cheryl will take me Thursday evening. It's a 50's-style diner and the menu is online. I'll make my pick beforehand and stick to it. On Saturday, I'm invited to lunch at a Chinese buffet. Gotta refresh my buffet strategy and I should be OK. Otherwise, I have NO excuses this week to not track because my work schedule is relatively light. Of course, I am getting nervous/excited about my upcoming trip to Ireland --- and praying that I'll also be able to make the Florida trip as well.
I was looking for an article or blog post where I read about dealing with special occasions, and "cheat" days but I couldn't find it. I do remember something that said, if we overeat on 30 days a year (birthdays, Christmas, July 4, Super Bowl Sunday, you name it!), it will take us 60-90 days just to maintain our weight. I'm going to try and remember that this week!
Keep drinkin' that water --- it's hot out there (at least here in southern Germany)!!
