All day Sunday and (almost) all-day Monday I was doing great, full steam ahead. I was like a WW newbie. Counting my points, carefully tracking, getting my guidelines in, even burning 10 AP. Then - out of nowhere- Ringggggggg! Its my friend calling me over to her pad to celebrate her b-friend's b-day.
Now, I was doing great up until this moment. It was 9 pm and I still had 4 points left! I thought, Sure we'll go over and have A BEER. One beer. Besides it was The Fiance's B-day at midnight so I figured we would celebrate both Birthdays at the same time.
Little did I know she would have the full spread out when we got there. Doritos, Fried Chicken, fried potato wedges, Carne Asada, con queso & salsa and of course RED VELVET CAKE!!! On top of that beer & liquor. Nothing was healthy on that table and it was all sitting in front of me. I had no where to go and no matter where I looked the fatty goodness was staring me in the eye. Honestly, I tried to avoid it but with everyone sitting around the table chillin, I definitely would have looked oddball had I sat anywhere else. One Dorito I said to my self. But once it hit my lips- it was all over! I couldn't say "No" to anything. It was all down hill from there.
When we left I had serious eaters remorse. Even the Fiance felt the same.... we agreed the temptation was too much to take. You must have willpower of steel if you could sit in front of all that food and not lose control.
But here is my problem, we are suppose to get together to celebrate The Fiance's birthday. We had such a good time last night- but last night I gobbled down all of my 35 extra points. Leaving me with nothing today. i dont want today's celebration to turn into another free-for all.
I need a game plan. So what should I do tonight??? Please help me with suggestions, strategies- I will be in charge of providing the food. How am I going to make it through tonight?
