I have a good friend's 40th birthday celebration tonight. She's making dinner, me and another friend are bringing appetizers/sides and dessert. I have no idea what food will be there, but I know neither of them are focused much on calorie intake (both very tall and very thin), and the birthday chick is a 1st Class Entertainer, so she likes to have food out all over the place for people (us and our boyfriends/husbands) to walk around stuffing out faces for an hour or so before any meal is served. It's like walking through a mine-field, trying to go there and avoid overeating. If I tell them I'm trying not to overeat, they'll tell me to lighten up and enjoy myself for the night. (I sorta did that last night though - overate for emotional reasons.)
I am OK with going over my calories for her birthday celebration. I just don't want to go WAYYY over them, esp since I have no chance to get a workout in today. I can't hike as planned, due to rain. Boyfriend's on his way over in a bit, so I can't pop in a workout video now. I had my Cheerios for b'fast already, so I suppose I need to have a salad for lunch and save up all my calories for this evening. I hate waiting. I'm really, really fighting a desire to pig out on the whole contents of my kitchen today.
This is hard. And I guess that's why not everyone is doing it.... >sigh<
I need a great motivational pic now.... (Nothing wrong with re-using my favorites.)
