What is the best way to approach party situations with your heath in mind?
One wise, mostly thin friend would choose to skip the alcohol and spend her calories on food (or desert) without overeating. Not that I am much of a drinker, but I do enjoy a cocktail on occasion. Party number 1, tonight is without kids, so I really might want a cocktail
I have been having a hard time getting back on the horse since my colonscopy prep, etc. In fact yesterday I was way way off the horse when I took the kids to Disneyland. I am up 2 pounds. I need to get back on the horse, wagon or whatever you want to call it.
So here is my plan:
- Lots of water and tea. I will make a big pot of my Oolong tea. It is supposed to help with the digestions of carbs.
- Exercise. When I put the baby down for a nap, I will get on the treadmill. This will be hard because I have a ton of stuff to do around the house too. I have a sitter coming, so cleaning IS required.
- Low carb for the day. Steel oatmeal with flax, protein and no sugar. Steak soup for lunch and an apple with PB just before the party.
- Enjoy the party but keep it small and sensible.
