My DH and neighbors want to go out today to try a new place for pizza. I am all set to go as I am one pound under(one cushion pound) my goal weight of 110, so that means I am 109. I know for you that follow me I work really hard between social events to eat light and continue to lose what I call my "cushion pounds". It is now such a habit that whenever I eat at home I am basically dieting if you will. I track everything and eat around 1200 calories a day. This allows me to still lose a little so that when the call comes I am ready to go out and indulge without guilt. So today I will have my two beers and hopefully enjoy some good pizza although, I am a pizza snob and very picky about how I like my pizza. I like it thin crust with just extra sauce and lite cheese. I have a favorite place here that knows me so well that they make my crust extra thin and crisp and then bring a bowl of extra sauce for me to spoon onto it as I eat it. It's funny, I feel like I am "cheating" today on my favorite place and the owner by trying this new place but everyone else wants to try it. So funny how loyal I am to certain things. We will also have FIL join us so we can see and get together with him.
Yesterday was a little hard not to have a beer as my DH went out all afternoon just down the hill with his buddy and our neighbor to a sports bar. They were there like 6 hours drinking beers and you can just imagine the shape they were in when they got home. And of course my DH wanted to continue the party and buzz and helped himself to more beers and wanted me to sit outside and talk with him. That is always so hard for me as I don't drink like the rest of them. It just makes me too sick the next day if I have too many drinks. My limit is about 2 beers with lots of food. Anyway my DH get a bit loud and is hard of hearing and cranks up the music. I sat outside with him and let him go on for about an hour or so then got chilly and came inside. I can't really complain as this isn't an everyday thing for him and he was just letting off steam. It's just hard to be the sober one all the time. I just refuse to drink and not feel good just to be silly for a while. Sorry for the rant. I know my neighbors and friends think I am a wimp and not much fun at times and perhaps a bit of a bore but I don't think it is so cute when people are drunk. If they only knew how stupid they seem. Anyway, I refuse to let their opinions of me stop me from taking care of me. As many of you know, I simply disappear and go to my room and read kindle when they all get stupid.
Looking forward though to the pizza and beer.
Hope all my sparks friends are doing just great. Have a terrific Sunday.
