Wisdom from Royalty in planning ahead

Friday, April 29, 2011

We all know that it is hard going to events, special occasions, parties and so forth when we are counting calories We can learn from the Prince and Princess, the Duke and Dutchess of Cambridge if you will, they decided not to drink champagne during the day, while they gathered right after the ceremony to celebrate in the Buckingham Palace. They knew they had a very long day and night ahead of them with all the celebrating and knew that the champagne would probably cause them to lack in stamina. Although this doesn't count for us calorie counters, I thought that we could gleen from this. So when we have special events going on, make plans ahead so as to stay in control. Act as the Royals do, very small bites, and very self controlled. Hats off to the new bride and groom...or should I say 'Hats On'

    You are so right.
    When we pan ahead it helps us to stick to our goals--it is one of the best strategies ever. It works well with going out to eat. If we know where we are going, most menus are online--there are websites that can help if SP doesn't have it, and we can pick out good healthy choices and stick to our plan. It also helps with the special events you mentioned. We can also drink some extra water and enjoy some fruit or veggies or salad before we go so we are more full. That helps us to meet our fruit and veggie goal and it helps us to avoid the bread basket or heavy calorie hors d'oevres or appetizers. It is a win-win for us.
    Excellent blog!! Thanks for reminding us to use the tools we have when we need them most!!
