Gonna Be A Tough One…

Posted by jenteal on August 7th, 2010 |Filed Under Uncategorized | 1 Comment

Today is the first day of my BF’s birthday celebrations.  Since his parents are divorced, we have a party with his Dad’s side today, his Mom’s side tomorrow and on Monday (his actual B-Day) it will be just he and I.  It’s a weekend filled with grilling out and cake, etc. etc. etc.   I haven’t been able to sleep all night and I was hoping to get in several good hours so I could get a good 2 hours worth of exercise in today.  At least if I were to exercise an extra hour, I wouldn’t have so much guilt for participating in the (regulated) munching. 

I told myself at the beginning of this journey that I will not deny myself foods on holidays/special occassions because that will make me miserable and I’d be setting meself up for failure.  Instead I promised myself that I would limit my intake of the foods offered.  Instead of a whole burger, I’d just eat half a burger.  Instead of a handful of chips, I’d have 5 chips.  Instead of a slice of cake, I’d have a sliver of cake.  Afterall, I think for me it’s mostly the taste I’m after.  If I can just taste the foods, that’ll be enough to satisfy me.

So here goes.  Wish me luck – I’m goin in!
