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.

    You are so right. Every event seems to have food available. We are foodcentric.

    That's my biggest secret . . . if I am going to meet friends and it involves food, I eat @ home -- just a light meal -- so I'm not famished when I get to the event. Then I can concentrate on socializnig vs. food.
