I read once in a magazine, eat at home before going to a party or activity. This fills you up and you usually won't want any of the high calorie foods. If you do get hungry, or need a snack, grab some fruit or veggie, most parties have those trays.
My biggest problem doesn't lie in the food. I have a sweet tooth, that I usually choose poorly, then feel horrible afterwards, even knowing the end result. A great example would be yesterday when I attended a kids birthday party. Most of the time I can refrain from cake, unless it's from one of the bakeries back home! I seriously, cannot walk away from a slice of cake or a cupcake from one of my hometown bakeries. I swear not even 10 mins after I ate half of the cupcake, my stomach hurt and I wanted to throw up from how sweet it was! Oh the torture I choose, haha. Anyway, I'm hoping since while we're camping for the Fourth I don't have any bad foods, I'll be good to go. Plan, plan, plan, is my best way of choosing wisely!
I don't diet, diets are fads that we do to lose weight. Eating healthy, choosing wisely, is a way of life. I got rid of my fat clothes, because I have no intentions of gaining that weight back, ever! Staying focused and choosing foods that help me to stay healthy and fit, is what I choose.
I hope you all have a fantastic Monday, set your goals, stay focused, and crush it!
