It's going to be a bad weekend

Thursday, April 12, 2012

I admit that I’m dreading the end of this week: lots of eating out with little time for exercise. I know my body has some bounce back but I think I’ve exhausted that pool of bounciness. I’ve noticed that if I am bad food-wise, I might gain a pound or two but if I stick to my normal eating and exercising routine, the weight disappears again. But I don’t know if my body can handle what I’m about to put it through. Besides, I think I used up the bounce back-ness already with Easter dinner.

Tonight I’m having dinner at Kang Suh. I’ve been promising my friend to take him to Korean BBQ ever since he discovered Korean food a few months ago. This friend of mine has an as adventurous palate as mine so I’m surprised he’s never had Korean food until just a little while ago.

Saturday, we have friends visiting and we’re going to take them to see the New York Botanical Gardens’ Orchid Show. Of course, that means another night of eating out.

And then Sunday, we’ve got a surprise 60th birthday for a family friend. It’s at an Italian restaurant. I LOVE Italian food but I find it very hard to make healthy food choices when there’s so much pasta around. Pasta/noodles are my weakness…

Saturday’s weigh in for the 5% spring challenge isn’t going to be pretty. But I’m not going to stop living my life.

    One bad week and a few pounds up are not the end of the world. They will go away again. Enjoy yourself and don't add undue stress! Make the healthiest choices that you can and be thoughtful of what you eat without beating yourself up. Stress just makes it worse :)

    Good luck!
