This weekend, I had the absolute pleasure of attending my dear friend's 40th Old School Throwback Party! What a blast.
Temptation was everywhere! However, I was prepared. I went in with a plan. No grains, breads, heavy carbs. She made sure there were fruits and veggies and un-breaded protein. I was thrilled. I easily navigated the food table. Having fruit and a few meatballs and only 1/2 a deviled egg. Yes. I didn't even feel tempted to eat the pockets, crackers, pasta etc.
With the plan there typically is room for a small treat. My treat was to be a cupcake. I enjoyed 1..well almost 1. I'm not a fan of frosting...so I ate the cupcake bottom only.
Now, was I perfect. No. I did also have literally 1 sugar baby, 1 lemon head, 1 mini chicko stick and a cigarette(gum) and as the night was coming to a close...I gave in to the rice crispy treats. I mean really, they were old school treats. I had to enjoy a taste! I only had water as my choice of beverage. Today, I'm happy because I maintained my weight. I enjoyed myself without feeling deprived and without getting crazy at the table. I woke up Sunday morning, happy, energized and ready to work out! No tummy aches, no headache and no regrets! One day, one meal, one moment at a time!
