More successes and a test

Saturday, November 17, 2012

So, I remain proud of myself. I faced several more temptations over the last 24 hours that I have successfully turned down or turned away from! Last night, a Friday night, I really wanted a beer. I was out with one of my kids, picking up Subway, and I kept thinking in my head that I could just stop at the grocery or at the corner store and pick up a 12 pack. I kept telling myself I could just have one or two, as I knew I still had the calories available.

But, I didn't! Nope. I didn't. And I was fine without my beer! I honestly have not missed it much this week. Right around 5:00 each day I kind of wish I was about to have one, but then I move on to something else and forget about. Knock on wood, but it has been easy!

So, tonight, is my test. It is a good friend's 40th birthday party. Lots of food and tons of drinks! I am going into this evening with the idea that I am not going to deprive myself of anything I want, but I am going to have it all in moderation. It is going to be hard, really, really hard. One friend in particular is a pusher! She will push a drink into my hand everytime it is empty. She will fill a plate for me if I don't have one. And she won't take no for an answer.

So, my plan is to nurse my drinks and to graze, very, very slowly on the food. I have eaten healthy so far today, so I feel like if I end up going over in calories it will be okay. Tomorrow I will go right back to where I have been. But, tonight I am going to enjoy myself. Within reason.
