I love my family but as I was thinking back of my choices the past two days. They are sabotaging my lifestyle changes. I know they are not trying to do it on purpose because they are saying how good it is that I am finally trying to lose weight (like I haven't tried before, longer story). Friday was my rest day from exercise. I was possibly considering doing still some light exercise but was really exhausted from the week. But then I was invited out to eat. I said yes because I hadn't seen the people in a while before of busy schedules. What I didn't know was we were going to was the one restaurant where the healthiest thing on the menu is plain white rice. But over all I think I did well because I tried to watch my portions and I stuck to my one dessert not a sample of all. But then I was invited to go to a football game. I was excited to spend the day with some of my favorite cousins. Before I really considered the food possibilities. So yesterday health wise was a disaster. Tailgating food is diet friendly, Nor is the premise of munching before the game and afterwards not including the meals on the road and possibly a snack during the game if you have little cousins. Plus because I left at 5 am and didn't get back until 9:40 pm I didn't get in any exercise either. I will have to work on a better tailgating plan before next football season.
