Be afraid…very afraid

Thursday, November 21, 2013

And this I am…very afraid. Tonight is the 1st in many holiday gatherings I will be attending. Yes it’s so easy to stay on track when you live in your own little world. In a controlled setting like your own home and kitchen able to eat only what you have purchased - all healthy of course emoticon

But now with the holiday season here - Thanksgiving just next week - what will we do when we are faced to move about in this big giant unhealthy world full of holiday treats and gourds of tasty foods. Of course all our favorites, you know - the ones we forbid ourselves to have in our home!!

So tonight I will be attending a large Thanksgiving celebration being held at my daughter’s college. Originally my first thought was to RSVP as being busy - aka not available. Great excuse hu? Well that certainly doesn’t support my daughter and I do want to be there for her and have a wonderful visit. So the RSVP was returned; Yes I will attend. But now that the day has arrived I’m afraid, very afraid of loosing control as I normally do and especially at the treat table… OH NO… emoticon

This is why I decided to blog on this, that way I’m hoping by writing out my concern I will feel compelled stay with a mindset of what to “choose” and in what “quantity” I choose to consume all the goodies that will be spread before me tonight! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon [Can you tell I have a sweet tooth?? emoticon ]

I know that this evening is the first of many but if taken “one-step-at-a-time” emoticon

    Thanksgiving? I'm giving thanks that we aren't celebrating Thanksgiving. It's cleaning day, get housework done. We will go up the hill to the Knights of Columbus who give a Thanksgiving noon dinner, and we'll have something to eat. But since it isn't family there won't be the manipulation and pressure to overeat.

    Sorry, I can't help you on this one! I attended my first get-together last eve with a full Thanksgiving Dinner at our Church. It was an Community din-din. Of course, I only left a couple of bits of green beans, go figure.

    Then, Thanksgiving Dinner at DD2's. Then that week-end, another one at DD1's.

    Just think, then will be Christmas goodies, din-dins and then New Year's. I sure hope my pants still fit! But, then we can get down to business and start our healthy eating again!

    Have Fun,

    You can do this! Consider this your test, if you can pass this one than the other ones will be a breeze. I know what you mean with a galore of food and all yummy to top it off! I've been fighting the menu with my family and have failed miserably but I am still determined to win my own personal battle. It's good that you decided to go, life can't stop only because you don't want to over indulge in cake, no choose the cake wisely! In other words, you might not be able to indulge in everything they have but choose what you really really would like to have and enjoy it. Have a great time!
