Upcoming Willpower Test
Thursday, April 03, 2014
I will be traveling to VA this Sunday to visit my Mom for a couple of weeks.
Since I just got to my desired weight not long ago, and just started really paying attention to my bodies nutritional needs, I see this trip as both a happy time (because I always love to see my Mom) and a true test of my willpower, because she's not the healthiest eater any more. Since she lives alone now, she doesn't cook (.) When she gets hungry she snacks, mostly on all those yummy unhealthy snacks, and goes out for her meals, which is often hit and miss, meaning no real time schedule. I'm not used to eating out at all. I cook almost every night at home. While I look forward to NOT having to cook for 2 weeks!
I don't see how I can possibly track my calories during this time! This puts a sense of dread in my mind.
The best I think I can hope for, is to try and remember the healthy eating habits I've learned thus far, and remember portion control. I will try to keep a few healthy snack items handy, so when she's chomping down on those potato chips and super sweet deserts, and asks :'Would you like to try this? It's REALLY good!!' I will have the sense of mind to say 'No thank you Mom'.
Wish me luck!!
