Advice needed for challenge this weekend

Thursday, May 23, 2013

This weekend Hubby and I will be going out of town for a wedding! I am planning on bring some protein bars with me and eating very light at restaurant. Hotel does have an exercise facility that I plan on using Sat and Sun along with a little swimming. At the wedding itself I do plan on letting the hair down a bit. what is life if you cant have a little cake every once in a while and a glass of wine. I think a planned cheat is fine. I am determined to enjoy this weekend but not throw all of my hard work to the wind. In the past I would run into this and derail and take weeks to get back on track or not at all.

If you have any advice please let me know.

Thanks in advance

    Definitely plan your restaurant meal. Look up the menu, ask others, and choose something healthy from their selections. I agree with other posters in portions. Remember how small a portion of cake is and take time when eating it to actually enjoy it and you will be fine! Way to go planning to workout at the hotel too! emoticon emoticon

    I research healthy eating options online before I go into a restaurant. Grilled chicken is always a good choice. You can always take half of the over sized meal home to eat later. Enjoy your weekend.

    Don't call it a "planned cheat."

Planning is important to our success, and sometimes planning means choosing foods we don't ordinarily eat--it isn't cheating, it's planning. Make sure portions are a part of your PLAN!
