AAHHHH!! The world is trying to sabotage me!!!

Tuesday, December 04, 2007

So, I'm looking ahead to next week and realizing how busy I'm going to be... and then I realize... I'm potentially going to have to eat out 4 times next week!!! On top of that... I'm going to have my monthly friend visiting (which always messes with my cravings and numbers on the scale). It's just not going to be a good week!!
Sunday, I'm going to see a show with my parents, husband, and brother... which should be fun. My husband, however, wants to go out to eat afterwards at one of our favorite restaurants (an Italian one... with buttery-cheesy goodness for almost every dish). I figure... OK. I can do it. I'll look for grilled chicken... leave something on my plate... I'll be OK.
Then my mom calls... my grandparents' 50th wedding anniversary is Thursday. She doesn't ask if I want to go out, but rather tells me she'll call me and let me know where to be and when. 'We're going to try a new restaurant,' she tells me. YAY!
Friday, I've been looking forward to for forever... my mom and i are going to see Wicked! But of course, we'd made previous plans to go out to eat before the show. Now don't get me wrong... I can convince her to go to Subway or something... but let's not worry a perfectly good rant with logic!! That'll be the 3rd restaurant that week!!
Finally, Sat. is my mother-in-law's b-day... so we have to go out for that.
On top of all that, I don't know that I'll have time (or energy) to fit in any extra workouts because I'm swamped at my job right now!!
I'm just worried b/c I've been doing great for about 6 weeks now... steadily loosing a pound a week... even through Thanksgiving!! I just don't want to see that scale go up!! I just don't see how that's not going to happen though eating out so much!! UGH!!

    I can relate...Work at my school has been unbelievable... and the parties/socials etc. are only just starting.

    Take a breath. Look for the best food choices possible if you have to go out.

    Try to excercise in 10 minute spurts if you have to.

    Hang in there!

    take it all in stride and dont let the thoughts of "where are we going to eat" and "what am i going to order?" consume you and preocupy your mind. Enjoy the experience and just remind yourself that your changing your lifestlye now and order accordingly. share dessert or try to guiltlessly spluge in 1 restaurant on 1 meal rather than all different places.
    Have a great time. Wicked is a great show!

    Sounds like you're up for a very full week! Don't stress about it too much. That won't help you at all. Just keep in mind when you know you will be eating out or eating a lot. That way, you can make a plan to eat smaller, healthier meals throughout the rest of those days. When you know you'll be using much of your allotted calorie intake, just plan ahead and compensate the rest of the day. You CAN do this!

    sounds like a tough but yummy week! just plan ahead as much as you possibly can (call the restaurants and ask them to fax a menu if they don't have one online) and box up half...then you won't have to cook for a week! you can do it!!
