Birthday weekend and surprise visit from MOM!!

Thursday, February 21, 2013

HELP!!!!!! Just when I thought I had the birthday weekend under control, the BF comes home with my MOTHER! All the way from St. Louis! Oh and did I mention we're getting nasty snow right now. I've already planned my food and drinks for the weekend, (thinking meh, it's only 3, why make a huge deal) but now I have to play hostess and tour guide. Taking her to all of the places I've wanted to go but I'm not prepared to turn them down now. What do I do?!?! Being loved is tricky.

    Happy birthday!! Enjoy your weekend with your Mom! Don't go overboard with your eating, but don't miss out on anything!

Can you look online at the menus of the places that you will be going, so that you can make the best choices possible before you even get there? That way you won't be tempted by what you see/smell. Maybe share a meal with someone instead of eating the whole dinner yourself? Or go ahead and ask for a to-go box and put half of it away as soon as it arrives? I did that two weekends ago. I love this cajun chicken pasta at a local restaurant, but the calories are outrageous! I put half of it away in the to-go box as soon as it got to the table. I asked for it while I was ordering. They were super nice about it. I'm sure that get weird requests all the time, and that one is not so weird. I brought it home and had it for the next day's
lunch. It was overboard for one day's meal, but it fit in with my calories for two days.

Is your Mom active? Maybe you could set up a class at the gym for both of you or just treadmills side-by-side. :) I'm sure your Mom wants the best for you, and that she wouldn't want you to stress about being a hostess and ruin your progress so far.
And if she isn't the type of Mom who wants the best for you, YOU stick up for yourself and get your exercise in even though she is visiting. Get up really early and do a video exercise before she gets up.

I'm sure you will make it work. Enjoy your weekend! Let us know how it turns out and how you did. Inquiring minds want to know! LOL

    Happy birthday! Sounds like this is not the most welcome surprise - but I'm sure she loves you and is looking forward to spending your special day together. Good luck.
