woohoo! Memorial day weekend is almost here with the picnics & bbqs & bday parties (well here at our house anyway <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink"> )<br><br>
BUT I need help eating healthy foods during all this excitement!<br><br>
So, this thread is for moral support, discussion & ideas of how to stay mindful of our goals during this holiday weekend...<br><br>
I start off by saying that we have a big 2 yr old bday party this Saturday & I have family coming from out of town to visit. I asked my SIL to make the bday cake so I wouldn't have so much temptatious baking to do & the party menu is grilling, so grilled veggies are a big part of it with black bean salad & fruit salad as the main side dishes. I am leaving it to others to make the potato salad & all that. So, I am pretty proud of my plans there.<br><br>
Now dealing with visiting family is another thing. We are all trying to eat healthier, but our family habit is to have a food fest. You know, we were the people who go to Outback with 4 adults & have to order 5 entrees! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/bag.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Bag">: Yikes! But we are all reforming ourselves & feeling better bcz of it, it's just hard not to cave when any one of us says "let's cheat!" Esp. me bcz I feel like they are only here a short time & when they are gone I can go right back to my food plan, right? ha.<br><br>
SO, I would love to hear what others have to say about the challenges of a holiday & how to make it thru ...<br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love"> Maria
