temptations beyond the graduation party...

Tuesday, August 06, 2013

whew. emoticon

the graduation party is finished! emoticon don't get me wrong, it was very exciting and a lot of fun! emoticon ... but it was also kinda stressful. you know, do i have enough food, enough space, is the weather gonna be nice, is everyone gonna show up, ect... it was a great party, and it looked like everyone had a good time.

well, i first want to say thank you, to all of you who gave me advice about my anxiety. emoticon . i worked out before i went, so that made me feel good, and more in control. emoticon i ate a moderate breakfast, and did all right during the party. i didn't go over board, although, i did eat probably more than i should have...

but the next day, a friend who was at the party stayed over, and we went out to lunch. i chose a restaurant that i knew had good healthy choices that i would actually eat. emoticon we get to the restaurant, CHILI'S, and i ask for the guiltless chicken sandwich, and steamed broccoli emoticon . "oh, so sorry, it is no longer on the menu." emoticon what????? my mind race, "what am i gonna do???" emoticon then the waitress said, that maybe they could still make it for me! my OLD self would have been, "no, that is okay, i don't want to be a bother"... BUT, i said, "yes please, check for me, that would be wonderful." and guess what? they DID make it for me! emoticon . so, i even stayed on the right path when i usually wouldn't have! (oh, by the way, while the waitress was asking, i was looking at other healthy options, instead of the old me that would have said, "the heck with it, i am binging!") emoticon

now i know that is NOT what my blog entry title is about... so i best start talking about all the extra food we have... yes, still in the present tense, my counter and frig are filled with emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon ....

eeks! what am i gonna do???? emoticon i asked my hubby if we could donate it, but since it is all touched and stuff, they won't take it for health regulations. emoticon ... and my hubby WILL NOT just dump food.... so, here it sits, staring me in the face! just taunting me to eat it! emoticon and to get to any of my healthy food, water emoticon , grapes emoticon , other fruits, i literally hafta move stuff outta the frig, set it on the counter, to touch my healthy food emoticon ... let me tell you, it is really hard to do!

but, i am not eating any of the leftovers! emoticon don't get me wrong, i am not denying myself. if i want to have the piece of cake, or whatever, i will let myself have a piece, but i am just telling myself that i need to eat my healthy stuff first, or try to find less caloric choices, like dark chocolate, or whatever. of course, my family is eating huge plates of all this grad party food, and let me tell you, the cake???? ummm! it smells AWESOME! emoticon

i am gonna go work out, and just remind myself, that the grad party food will be gone soon, and i am continuing my healthy lifestyle. believe me, it is TOUGH! emoticon , but it is one small victory at a time... emoticon

    Sounds like you made lots of great choices so congrats! I know what you mean about the party food left overs, I took some to work and they will eat pretty much anything so I was happy to do that.
    Keep on doing your best and great job on ordering the healthier options at Chili;s, I always look at the low calorie version at every restaurant now where before I would have gone with the sandwich and fries but no longer want to even think of the calorie content in that kind of food.

    Maybe you or your hubby can share it with people at work? People I work with bring in leftover treats from meetings and such a leave them "up for grabs" in the break room.
    Keep up those good decisions! It's hard to not eat mindlessly, especially with all those treats in the house.
