Day 874- Surviving this Wedding Weekend

Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts

Thursday, April 24, 2014

Hello Everyone!

This weekend, I'm in my friend and future bridesmaid's wedding. This involves the rehearsal dinner Friday night, the wedding all day Saturday and a champagne brunch on Sunday!

While I love celebrations, I wish so many of them didn't revolve around food. Every holiday means a special meal and desserts. Birthdays, weddings, retirement parties, almost everything we celebrate also means food. I'm getting better at loading my plate up with veggies and fruit at the beginning, but I love cheese and crackers as well as chips and dip, so I just have to learn moderation.

Saturday will probably be the most difficult day because two of my three meals are being provided. I'm hoping I have healthy choices, and if I don't, I'm going to work on eating smaller portions of what I'm offered.

Regardless I think it will be a wonderful weekend! I'll be sure to post pictures next week! I'm about 10 pounds lighter than when my bridesmaid dress was fitted, so I hope it looks good still!

Have a great weekend everyone!

    I too wonder why every event has to include food.

    Hope you had a wonderful time and were able to avoid temptation--for the most part anyhow. You've got to enjoy life a little bit sometimes.

    I'm sure you'll have fun - and if you end up with, let's just say 'a problem', you have clearly got the determination and resources to sort it out before it really does become a problem. Life happens - it's how you deal with it that matters. Looking at your pictures, you've got it susses.

Have a wonderful time!

I love the options that you've set for yourself. Something healthy if not smaller portions! That's the best.

  Sometimes we just can't avoid a situation like the one you will be in. Eating small portions is a good thing, you know by now which foods do the most damage! Enjoy yourself and have a great time, you'll do well I'm sure of it! Don't doubt yourself! :-)
