A Family Affair
I'll keep this short and sweet because I've been up since 3:30AM... it's now 11:20PM and WAY past my bedtime - just walked in the door!
Jam packed day - ending off with a fabulous dinner at my folks' place with my Aunt and Cousin who I haven't seen in FOREVER! It was great to catch up.
I knew going in to dinner what my mom was planning on cooking for tonight - so I was able to plan my day out in MFP ahead of time and make the rest of my day fit around it. I kept it simple - stuck to the basics (protein + veggies, salad - light on any dressings, etc) and eyeballed my way through the meal.
I had to say NO to the wine, chips, crackers with delicious pate - AND blueberry tart for dessert (I had some fresh blackberries instead) - but the evening wasn't about the food - it was about reconnecting with my family. I didn't feel left out, or that I had to make any massive sacrifices.
Overall - happy with how I managed things - and without having to eat out of tupperware containers or explain at great length why I wasn't "eating what every one else was eating."
The beauty of flex dieting :)
Workout today was a pull session - I felt pretty strong despite a very disrupted sleep again last night (Russ was restless!)
All in all - today was a WIN.
Sleep is going to come quick tonight - I am BAGGED.
