Parties. It's always the parties

Wednesday, April 27, 2011

So last night was a bad night, food wise. I have been so, so good for the past 8 or 9 days, and I was decent during the day... but having people over and cooking a bunch of party food and then socializing over a dinner table... ugh. Not a pretty picture.

It is things like this that I think always derail me. This happens and I get upset about it and try to push it out of my mind and not think about it. But I HAVE to think about it. That is how I am going to figure out how to not do it again.

So I logged everything as best as possible this morning. This is difficult, though, with party food because everything brings things and I am never exactly sure what what brands of things others brought. I tried tried tried to only taste things I was unsure about.... and I estimated as best as possible, but there are some things, especially with my diet and odd leanings, that are just impossible to sort out well. Sigh.

So, I am going to weigh myself today and check out the damage. I am not recording the weight, because I record my weight on Mondays. But I am going to look at it and see.

Tomorrow I hope to put in a decent amount of miles, early in the day. But I have ANOTHER social event tomorrow night and it is at a nice restaurant. Bah. Just keep trying...

    yeah. parties are difficult.
    i dont do well. i dont track and will never track. but, then, i dont have very many special occasions, you know? itd be different if i had to go out all the time or whatever.
    but since i dont, my theory is that i got fat at home...not due to parties or anything else. so, i cut myself some slack and deal with the consequences.
    it is....unpopular. but it works for me.
    hope you are back on the track you want to be on.

    I totally agree! Parties are my down fall too. I have problems saying no to seconds and thirds on delicious foods and drinks. But it helps to focus on the positives when these situations occur. For example: before I started sparkpeople, I would eat and eat and eat....and drink til I was stupid. After sparkpeople, I try to make healthier choices and limit my grazing and drinking (even if I do go over my daily limit). I'm not perfect...but at least it's a step towards a better me. There is a silver lining!
