Triggers & Plan
Thursday, June 21, 2018
Trigger situations – Why does every event have to involve food and friends always want to meet out for lunch?
Church – Big lunch after the service – I rarely stay for it.
Bible Study in private home – Always food
Two book clubs – one includes lunch, the other snacks
Lunch out at restaurants with friends – High salt and calorie
Weekly Emeritus lectures (includes lunch) & other lecture series (offers cookies)
Monthly gated community cocktail party (food and alcohol)
Dinner parties – alcohol and higher calorie foods and dessert
My Triggers –boredom, loneliness and cravings
My Plan – Plan my meals at home and at the kitchen table! Not in front of the TV or computer. Meal planning (3 meals plus snack), prep, and journaling. If I know I’m going out for lunch, I can have a lighter breakfast or eat something on plan at home before so I don’t over eat out with friends. Having easy to grab healthy snacks already prepared.
