Gearing up for the weekend!

Thursday, October 04, 2012

Here it is Thursday, and I've been nervous about the weekend for days. I can be so good making healthy choices and sticking with the plan all week - but weekends come and that is where I can lose it. However, I am convinced I am not going to let that happen this time. It isn't just weekends that get me, but getting together with friends. Our typical weekend with the friends coming include playing games/cards, drinking beer, and eating snacks mindlessly! A few beers, and all constraints go out the window. Not this time though! I am planning on serving chili, and will allocate a few tortilla chips to go with it. I'll have grated cheese and regular saltines for the rest of the group. And, I will be drinking water, and Crystal Ligh mojitos! Yes, I am going to do it! It may take all my strength, but I can do it!

    Massaging in healthy habits do take time. You're doing it and it will become habit along with a new mindset. I do it now on autopilot, especially when I cook. I also look for snacks that are low in calories, and taste good! Needless to say, portion control is essential!
    I've made this recipe three times and for two Super Bowl parties. The guests devoured it and asked for my recipe. You might want to try this...


    Here are a couple of lower cal beers to go with the chili and actually taste decent!

    Beck's Light (64 cal, 3.8% alcohol, 140.4 cal/alcohol oz)
    Corona Light (109 cal, 4.5% alcohol, 201.9 cal/alcohol oz)

    Hang tough, be strong, and be well! Cheers!
