Be afraid…very afraid
Thursday, November 21, 2013
And this I am…very afraid. Tonight is the 1st in many holiday gatherings I will be attending. Yes it’s so easy to stay on track when you live in your own little world. In a controlled setting like your own home and kitchen able to eat only what you have purchased - all healthy of course
But now with the holiday season here - Thanksgiving just next week - what will we do when we are faced to move about in this big giant unhealthy world full of holiday treats and gourds of tasty foods. Of course all our favorites, you know - the ones we forbid ourselves to have in our home!!
So tonight I will be attending a large Thanksgiving celebration being held at my daughter’s college. Originally my first thought was to RSVP as being busy - aka not available. Great excuse hu? Well that certainly doesn’t support my daughter and I do want to be there for her and have a wonderful visit. So the RSVP was returned; Yes I will attend. But now that the day has arrived I’m afraid, very afraid of loosing control as I normally do and especially at the treat table… OH NO…
This is why I decided to blog on this, that way I’m hoping by writing out my concern I will feel compelled stay with a mindset of what to “choose” and in what “quantity” I choose to consume all the goodies that will be spread before me tonight!
[Can you tell I have a sweet tooth??
I know that this evening is the first of many but if taken “one-step-at-a-time”
