A Sugar Addicts Struggle To Survive

Day 2 Continued: Memorial Day BBQ

Well folks, it is only day number 2 and I am faced with a tough food challenge. It is Memorial Day weekend and like many other people this weekend, we are having a BBQ. Nothing too big, but there is plenty of food aka: temptations to be eaten. 

One of the toughest parts of being on a diet is making it through special events, parties, etc.. today is one of those instances. Not only is it a matter of self control, but when people ask you to try something or ask why you aren’t eating something, it can be hard explaining to them that you are trying to eat healthy/diet. I am used to people’s groans, or ” Oh c’mon it isn’t that bad for you, just have some”, and me being the one with very little self control will say, ” Oh you are right, why not just a few bites?!” BUT NOT TODAY! 

Here is the food situation I am dealing with right now. 

-Hamburgers & Hot dogs (don’t eat meat so, that was easy)

– Mozzarella and tomato basil salad ( acceptable for consumption, but not too much cheese!)

– Fruit salad with fruit dip. ( already had my fruit for the day, so going to have to avoid that..which will be hard.Fruit dip is amazing.)

– Chips and dip ( absolutely not.)

So I will stick to the special co-slaw I made which consists of co-slaw mix (plain cabbage with some carrot) and oil and vinegar. I also will be eating a veggie burger. Debating on whether or not putting it on a bun would be ok, but if the bun has more than like 2 G of sugar I will not. 

Ok, thanks for letting me fill you in on the trials and tribulations of the day. I will be sure to let you know how it went tomorrow.
