My Sister's Wedding !!

Wednesday, May 16, 2012

My baby sis is getting married this weekend. I will be out of town two days for it. We have a rehearsal dinner and reception that I am sure will have all kinds of yummy food I should not eat. I am trying to drop an extra pound by Friday but have failed due to bad weather around here havent done much cardio this week. Should I just let go this weekend and eat what I want they did pay good money for the food, or should I keep on track and watch what I eat?

    Enjoy your weekend, remember moderation is key to success. This is an awesome weekend of festivities ----you can sample but just keep things in moderation as so you don't undo the success you already have found.

    Hi Trueginger,
    What an awesome occasion! Sounds like a lot of fun!

    I try to use the once in a lifetime rule. Weddings count for once in a lifetime. So I would relax and enjoy myself. I'd probably watch and try to mimic how to really have fun and still be healthy...I'd probably sit down and figure out how much alcohol I could consume without breaking my calorie budget for the week. Since you know they will have awesome food, you must know their menu, so sit down and figure out your most likely calorie consumption on wedding day, include a glass of champagne if its appropriate, add the glasses of wine if necessary. But sure to add the calories for that piece of cake (albeit perhaps a smaller piece or a half piece). Find out how much you are likely to go over on wedding day. Then divide those calories over the next 5 days days and decide to either subtract the amount to cover the access or add activity to burn those. Best of luck and have fun!
