Day 10 - Oh boy here we go

Wednesday, September 25, 2013

So I have made up my mind to stay away from refined sugars for a while. It's easier for me to give up sweets and stay on track if I do a "sugar fast". I accomplish this by eating clean (for the most part).

Today we have a dessert competition at the office. Really? Come on guys?! :)

I didn't make a dessert because frankly I don't want any temptations but they'll be all over the place today. I resisted gooey butter cake and brownies yesterday, isn't that enough of a test of my resolve? Well I'm not going to break that. I don't have any fruit left but lemons but I do have fresh veggies in the refrigerator. We have catered lunch today of ball park food so I'm going to do my best to keep it under control without being a party pooper.

It's all about moderation and portion control on days like this. My goal is to lose the weight and get healthy and to be able to do it and still participate in life. Pizza and hot dogs are going to happen and I'm going to want a beer occasionally so I have to know how to incorporate these things into my diet and still stay ahead of the curve.

    Now you've said cocktail, I think that might be the Amercian word. You know if you have a party and there's mini sausage rolls, mini quiches, mini pork pies and mini lots of other things? The samosas I used to buy were about 180 cals each (and two were quite nice). But the buffett size are a lot smaller - two for 105cals, so my greedy hands could grab three!

    Hi Snowmaiden! So good to "see" you. :) What are buffet size? It sounds like it might be like cocktail weiners here in the states? That's actually kind of brilliant and no I didn't think of it. Thank you friend

    You saying that pizza and hotdogs will happen and encorporating them? - sorry if I sound patronizing and I'm sure you've thought of this. I love Indian finger food - samosas etc but rarely had "room" in my allowance (for the number I wanted to eat) so I bought the buffet size. Just a thought. Sometimes a bite is as satisfying as the whole thing?
