Challenge for the day.

Saturday, June 22, 2013

Today will be a test to see how well I can resist over eating, or just eating the wrong foods. We have a neighborhood picnic this evening - and of course there will be lots of very tempting foods there. My plan is to fill my plate half full of veggies, have just the bbq. beef without the bun, a small helping of baked beans and some fresh fruit - all without making a big deal out of it. Looking forward to visiting with the neighbors, especially the ones that I haven't seen for a while, and I am glad we are making the effort to stay 'in touch'. All of our lives are so busy anymore that the days (or evenings) of chatting with the neighbors are gone.

    I have big trouble with potlucks and picnics. It is so tempting when there is all that yummy stuff right in front of me.

    Having a little protein snack before going to the picnic could help reduce temptation and allow you to make goal compatible choices without feeling deprived. emoticon
