One of my failings is eating right on the weekends. I usually end up skipping breakfast and not having any snacks. This kind of behavior is what has derailed me in the past. I'm going to make myself a nice breakfast now and slice some veggies for portable snacks. I'm having dinner with my family today and my Mom is a wonderful cook with lots of salt and butter and sugar. I have really tried to avoid it in the past and it just hurts her feelings so instead I'm going to drink a protein shake before I go to fill myself up and stick to small portions.
I volunteered to make the salad and veggies for the occasion and she accepted the salad offer so I'm going to make a big beautiful tossed salad with lots of crunchy vegetables and an olive oil balsamic vinegar dressing. I know if I fill most of my plate with the salad then the lack of the rest of the food won't be as noticeable. I'm going to do my best to avoid the refined sugar issue but this is a celebration for my father and I may end up having a small portion of whatever beautiful delicacy my mom has put together.
Okay time to go make home made breakfast sausage. Have a great day all!
