Party food!!!

I'm off to a work colleagues 50th birthday party tonight and I'm feeling a tad apprehensive about all the party food that will be tempting me! As much as I'm trying to mentally prepare myself now, it's so much harder when temptation is right in front of you!

I'm going to have a light healthy supper before we go and hope they have a few healthier foods on offer.

Wish me luck on resisting these!! πŸ·πŸΈπŸ€πŸ•πŸ—

  • Good luck! I've got a party tonight too. My challenge will be to hold back on the wine. Will be thinking of you :)

  • Good luck to you too and try and resist too much wine. I'm going to allow myself a glass or two as I've not had wine for a while. :)

  • Same here, but max 2 smallish glasses. Hopefully :)

  • Hmmm it is hard to say no when there are lots of lovely party food in front of you. I would do the same as you and have tea before you go and maybe have a few light treats at the party, just think when you are there what you want the most, to lose weight or the food in front of you and I'm sure it will be the bigger picture to lose weight, have a dance instead :)

    Maybe take some tic tacs or mints with you and if you feel tempted have a mint to put you off, plus with how strong tic tacs are if you did eat something after it wouldn't taste the same cos of eating mints so you wouldn't want it anyway :)

    Good luck tonight and enjoy yourself x

  • That's a good idea with the mints, I'll try that. Yes I'm planning on doing lots of dancing as haven't been out for ages. Thank you. πŸ˜ƒ

  • Good luck, parties are always a tough one. I always find having something light before I go helps. I also find sitting as far away as possible from the buffett table helps me not to nibble too much.☺

  • Thank you, good idea on sitting away from the buffet table. I've also told my hubby if he eats to eat it away from me!! Lol! πŸ˜„

  • Poor hubby 😁

  • I find one of the best things to help me resist t hose temptations is lots of dancing. Most party's have a big bowl of salad so have loads and drinks loads of soda water and lime.

    Dancing is great exercise as well.

    Have a great party and enjoy.

  • Thank you, yes I'm planning on lots of dancing. I have planned in a wine and soda into my calories but then will swap to lime and soda which is my drink of choice normally. πŸ˜€

  • Have a fab time, it sounds like you have it all planned so go go go and dance dance :)

  • Thank you πŸ˜€πŸ’ƒ

  • Hi ICan-IWill,

    Have a lovely time at your colleague's 50th Birthday party tonight, and good luck!

    Lowcal :-)

  • Thank you 😊

  • My son and daughter in law had a wedding blessing and celebration with barbaque, party food. Cakes etc.

    Tricky but I think I did good. Small glass of champagne, chicken steak let's and salad.

    No cakes or crisps or pastry based stuff. Think I did good. Hope you do well too

  • Way too late BUT I hope it went well for you?

    And if not don't knock yourself around just put on those trainers and go do some walking to walk off that carb/sugar/salt hangover.

    And if you WERE good - do it anyway! :D
