Tonight will, hopefully, be a far healthier, less indulgent version of last week.
Learning from last week’s mistakes (and the days it took me to start feeling normal again) there will be some changes this time around.
Instead of everyone bringing some snack foods, I’ve ordered a sushi platter from my favourite sushi restaurant and told everyone to bring $10 to cover the cost. There’s a great mix of veggie, salmon & avocado, shrimp and chicken (for the less adventurous) rolls and they are always super fresh. There’s no way I’m going to eat half a block of cheese or a bag of chips and dip if they aren’t an option.
I’m also going to scale back on the drinks. I didn’t get wasted last week, but 4 glasses of champagne is not something to make a regular habit of! (Last week was celebrating my promotion, though, so it’s alright). This week, I’m going to stick with one glass of red wine.
It looks like Fridays will be spent hosting girls’ nights at my place for the foreseeable future, so let’s hope I can get it sorted and have them be fun, healthy nights and not “the 5 hours that ruin my week’s worth of effort” every week. Keep your fingers crossed for me!
How do you stay motivated and on track when socializing – especially when food/drink is involved?
