We have a communal area at the back of my bungalow and we usually sit out at night in the summer and have a drink and a chat. I knew when i joined that that would be my achilles heel. Last night i had saved calories for one drink, but because it was our first time out this year, we stayed and had another, and so i find that i had gone over my allowance. So today i am re-thinking, and i have come up with the idea of making my nightcap longer, a taller glass, more sugar free coke in it, with lots of ice and maybe some lime and lemon slices. I think this way it will be more special, and will enable me keep control of the calories. I plan on eating this way as my new way of life, and so i dont want to have to deprive myself of my little pleasure. Fingers crossed that this works. By the way, alcohol dependancy is not an issue, haha, its just that now i am retired i want to enjoy my life, but at the same time i want to keep healthy. Off to Tesco in a mo for more fruit and veg to fill me up. Have a great healthy day everyone. xx
