I’m giving myself a major pat on the back for today.
I went to my good friend’s birthday party, just a get-together to watch the Blackhawks game, nothing too fancy. I went with a plan. I had a bar and ready-to-drink shake in my purse, and ate the bar as soon as I got there. This helped me avoid the munchies table (full of bacon-cheddar-ranch dip, chips, queso, and cookies. And liquor.) Dinner was then a grill-fest of bratwurst and Italian sausage and grilled peppers. Sausage and peppers are among my favorite foods.
I held strong. I drank a glass of water, played with the 3-month old puppy, and the hubby and I left not long after that. I came home and ate my soup. PHEW!!! That was some serious self-control to not say “screw it” and eat everything in sight.
I’m noticing little things as I lose bits of weight. My jeans don’t hurt my belly at the end of the day. I haven’t had a headache in almost 2 weeks. Something I’m looking forward to? Wearing heels again without feeling like death after a couple hours.
I’m off to bed… I’ve got a busy day tomorrow!
