The Social Engagement.





I've been avoiding social situations where I am easily tempted and could potentially fall off the wagon.


Last night I went to a social event hosted by friends. On my way, I stopped at the gym, ran 3 miles, showered and grabbed a Balance Bar so I wouldn't be ravenous when I got to the party.  I knew I would be tempted by the food there.  After all, appetizers are my weakness!  I was seduced by cheesy spinach balls, meatballs, crackers and cheese, cheesecake, chocolate and chips.  I am proud to say I avoided everything but one spinach ball and one meatball.  When I got home I was still hungry and heated up a little turkey in a wheat tortilla.  It was REALLY hard to avoid all the good food there and I see that as a SUCCESS. I was anxious about going at all since I am focused on my goal.

Even after avoiding the party food, I still ended up going over my daily Weight Watchers points (25) and dipped into the extra 35 I get each week.  I typically would not have a McDonald's breakfast but my house was being cleaned and the carpet cleaners were at my house.  I was unable to get into my kitchen.  But I feel pretty good about the choices I made given the circumstances.  Quite honestly, I couldn't take the pressure yesterday and did my very best.

Of course I know there weren't enough veggies in my diet.  I trip to the grocery store is necessary!

Here's how the day looked:

Workout: Ran 3 miles

Breakfast: McDonald's Egg McMuffin (7), hash brown (3), coffee (1) PS-for those of you tuning now, this is not something I would normally have!

Lunch: tortilla (2), fish (2) cheese (4)

Snack:  Balance bar (4)

Dinner: Spinach ball (2), meatball (1), tortilla with turkey (4) Wine (6)

Total:  37 over by 12 (utilized some of the extra 35 I get).

How do you handle the social engagement while trying to lose weight?

A balance bar, spinach ball and meatball? Of course you were hungry!
I suggest eating a meal/larger healthy snack before going to the party, then at the party hunt down the healthiest option there (crudite/fruit platter). The main reason people eat at parties is because it is there and it keeps hands busy.
