It was very hard to be good this weekend. I went back to my home town and socializing meant going to four parties and Friday happy hour margaritas with friends. Even though I fell off a bit in terms of my weekday routine, I feel good about it. I did an extra work out and tried to budget my calorie intake before the margaritas. At the restaurant, I pretended the chips and salsa didn't exist and skipped my normal fried fish dish for some grilled salmon tacos with whole black beans and no rice - it was quite good!
I also skipped the chips and cupcakes at the parties and stuck to water, salad, and the veggie tray. I didn't track my calories, and I'm sure I went over my range for a couple of days, but I'm right back in my normal routine now. In the past I would give up if I missed a day or two, so I'm really glad that I kept the damage to a minimum and am back at it.
