Major Temptations

Thursday, August 28, 2008

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.

Decisions, decisions...

    Personally, I say go for both, and exercise restraint if you can but if you can't, don't sweat it. We work hard to be able to indulge every now and then without beating ourselves up about it. Let me know what you ended up doing!
