Motivation/long weekend/celebration dinner

Friday, May 17, 2013

Ok.. so how does one get through a long weekend? A Lot of people might have this issue obviously. But how many people are wondering about their calorie intake? A lot of us workout/spark/fitness pals that is who!

This weekend I have a gathering of friends that we named "dipfest" it all started about 2 years ago when my husband and I and our two friends decided to have a little get together and bring a dip or cheesball /whatever.. It ended up with the four of us sitting in front of 4 lovely homemade dips and chips/crackers/nachos.. GLUTTONY at its best ( or worst)

So these gathering kept happening, more people would be recruited to join ( based on dip making skills) hahaha and we are having Dipfest 17 this weekend with only our original 4. Its gonna be tough.. how can i make a healthy dip? really?

Then on Sunday my two daughters are getting confirmed and we are having a chicken dinner at our house. its going to be the usual sunday sort of dinner, only complete with celebratory cake afterwards.. i'll skip that!

well, I am happy to say that I starting running home from work again yesterday, Did it in 35 min..very happy/very motivated.. so glad I am BACK to working on my goals

Have a lovely weekend everyone.. stay cool and stay true! emoticon emoticon

    Salsa or guacamole dips are good for you and salsa is low in calories. If you make your dips from sour cream, try low fat or non fat Greek yogurt instead. Baked chips or cut up veggies to dip. Best of luck.

    I have seen a lot of dip recipes out there with greek yogurt as their base! You could check that out? Does salsa count as dip too? Maybe you could make a fresh salsa - all veggies! Also - I think alot of people forget you can dip veggies into dip, not just chips or crackers. Dip some veggies into healthier dips and you might make out okay? Sounds like a boatload of fun to me though!

Good luck!

    Don't know if this helps but today Spark people featured "worlds' best spinach and artichoke dip 2T for around 64 cals. Sounds like a fun party!! Another spark friend reminded me once it's not always about the food it's being with friends and family---- but even having said that weekends and parties and special occasions are difficult! emoticon congrats to your girls. Have a Sparkling weekend!!
