Here's to a great weekend!


Monday, June 17, 2013

What a great weekend! Not much happened, but I'm working on actively seeking more positive things in my life, and this weekend bore that out. A couple visits with friends, some good walking in my local park and, yes, more healthful food choices! Far from ideal choices, mind you (Hello, potato chips that happened to leap into my cart and were way too delicious when I ate them), but better (hooray for healthy breakfasts and a huge reduction in dairy consumption!),

Volunteered again this weekend, working to help a sweet pooch named Wolfie get off his chain. It was fun, and afterwards I opted not to join the other volunteers for lunch. Not because I don't love hanging out with them, but because every time I go out after one of these builds, I end up eating a lot, usually diner grub, like burgers or fatty appetizers, and sometimes we have bloody marys or beer, depending if it's later in the day. While it's a fun time, it always messes up my day. So, I'll compromise--I can still do this very occasionally, but only when I've planned it into my "big picture" for the week, and I certainly don't have to do it every time! Going along and making healthy choices is not, at this point, an option for me. I've learned that group restaurant situations are a huge trigger for me.

So, if choosing to not do something is a success, then this was a successful weekend!

Have a great week ahead, everybody!

    Great job! Sounds like you had a great weekend. I am hopeful that after you've been at this awhile and can control your triggers more you will be able to join the group and eat and drink only what you are comfortable choosing. It may take awhile, but for now if avoiding the situation is what you need to do then that is the choice you need to make!! emoticon
