Last Night...

Sunday, November 18, 2012

So, if you read my blog post yesterday you know that I was faced with a good friend's 40th birthday party last night. I went into it knowing I was going to eat and drink. I hadn't had a beer in 5 days, which is really good for me! I had the mindset to approach it all with moderation.

So, how did I do? Well, I am not really sure. I don't think I did as well as I had hoped. The food was good, all appetizers, and I am sure I ate more than I should have. I tried to load up on the veggies, but of course had some cheese and meatballs and stuffed mushrooms and boneless wings! Yummmm! I drank more beer than I had planned to as well.

On one hand I am disappointed with how I did, yet I can't feel too badly because I feel good today. I feel good that I know that even though I partook in more food and drink than my weightloss goals allow, without a doubt I am right back into it today. No excuses. No feeling like, "I blew it, so I may as well blow it again today". I've been down that road before. It's easy to get caught up in that.

But, nope. Not me. Not this time. I am back on the wagon. The wagon that I didn't really fall off! I just turned it into a party wagon for one night, had fun, celebrated a good friend's birthday, and feel no guilt about it today!

    When we fall, we need to remember we are only a meal or a day away from getting back on the wagon. I celebrated a friend's birthday recently; he was 93. Another friend will celebarte her birthday this week; she is going to be 90. I'm young; I'm 76. God Bless YOU! Vic.
