Be Prepared


Tuesday, August 20, 2013

It's the mottos of the scouts movement , it's mine now.
Being prepared is a big part of my efforts to lose a few pounds.
Last night I was going to a quiz with wine and nibbles included.
The very word nibbles immediately means calories and fats to me. For my contribution to the nibbles display I added a bowl of grapes. When it was nibble time I just took a few of my own grapes. I had eaten before I went so I didn't need anything extra. I wasn't going to take wine but we were all given a glass of wine or fruit juice. I took wine and sipped about half if it, I refused any top ups . I enjoyed my evening a great deal, I would have regretted it if I had partaken of high calorie nibbles . I shall go and polish my halo now and start being prepared for today's challenges . Ree

    You make a really good point about thinking about your plan BEFORE you go somewhere that you know will be heavy in calories.

    emoticon Good job! Eating before an event is my strategy as well. Works wonders. That and plenty of water!

Your strategy of just "nursing" a glass of wind is excellent too. You get to taste but not going overboard!

Good job. You were prepared! HUGS

OH, and the grapes as your "take along" for the nibbles is excellent.
