Party tonight

Wednesday, May 22, 2013

It's our Executive Director's retirement party tonight (though he's staying on for a while as a consultant to help the new ED transition). Volunteers and sponsors will be attending - about 200 in all I think.

Unfortunately, this means that I don't have as much control as I would like over what I'll be eating. I'm thinking I may just try not to eat anything (unless there are fruits and vegetables) and eat dinner later.

As an intovert, I'm not really looking forward to mingling with a bunch of people I don't know... Oh well, it's only one night.

Had to get my stairs in this morning, even though I woke up to rain this morning. Happily, I really just got sprinkled on though my shoes were awfully wet.

My Stair Climbing Streak is 12 days now - 24,702 total stairs - 63% of the way up Mt. Everest.
My Exercise Streak is 52 days.
My Nutrition Tracking Streak is 4 days! Big emoticon

    Good luck attending the party. I know how you feel - I'm not one to mingle much. I think your plan regarding the food is a good one - that's generally what I do when I feel I have to attend a social function. Congrats on your streaks - I like the way you compare the stair climbing to climbing Mt. Everest - what a motivator!

I ALSO am going to KEEP on doing it,,, for "normally" I do it "in my head" but than,,,, well something had stopped working as much, and EVERYTIME We do the tracker week,, I LOSE !! AND QUITE A BIT !! On Sun I was 3 lbs heavier,,,but that was in part due to an illness and stress,,,now my kitty cat is back home,,,,so the stress is back dOWN and I am a DELIGHTED CAMPAH !! WOOHOOO So this AM, I was back where I started 2 weeks ago (I had gained 3 lbs last week, so now that's GONE !

    You are doing well! Great streaks! When I go to parties, I will eat what is served IF I love it. If I don't love it, I wait until I get some. Life is too short to eat food that I don't like! LOL!
