I have two major temptations to face today. The first is a pizza luncheon at work. (They seem to have those a lot around here.) The second is dinner at a sports bar (fried foods and beer galore) with my husband and his friends.
So, I'm trying to decide if I will go to one or both of these events. I have to at least show my face at the work party, but I don't have to stay very long. I may be able to make it out of there without having any pizza - or maybe just one small slice.
The sports bar is another story. My husband wouldn't mind if I skip out, but it would be fun to see our friends and watch our alma mater's football game together. The problem is, EVERY time I go to this place I end up indulging. And I don't mean having a couple of french fries or drinking one beer. I mean getting my own fries and having two beers....which can add up to a LOT of calories (and fat.) I just don't have any will power when it comes to beer and french fries.
So do I go, knowing that I will likely blow my diet for the day? Or do I stay home and find another way to enjoy my evening? I wish there was a third option - go and not give in to temptation. But based on past experience, I'm just not sure if that is possible.
