Birthday Party Moderation

Sunday, December 08, 2013

Today I'm having a party at , Portland's blacklight 3D pirate mini-golf course. It's my favorite thing to do in town! We're having gourmet pizza and chocolate cake, so my challenge is to treat myself without giving into "It's your birthday" overindulgence. I'm going for a limit of two slices of pizza and one piece of cake. To compensate, I'm eating a smaller breakfast. I can't bring myself to do just one slice - but I can easily stop myself from scarfing down three. Even moderation is relative.

Having a party with several guests is an unusual dynamic for me. I have to remind myself that we'll all muddle through and that the goal is fun, not perfection. Whoever shows up up and whatever happens, it will be good enough.
