So so annoying but my mum, whom I visit on the weekend every second week, is constantly trying to get me to eat out with her despite my protests that I am dieting and don't want to deviate from my planned food! And I don't want to eat early with her and then have no calories left for the rest of the day!
She even has her own health issues where most of the time she is sick if she eats out!! This weekend I told her clearly I don't want food when I visit and suggested we go for a nice dog walk! She will be 70 this year and feels vulnerable going out in the area she lives so of course she wants to make the most of my visit getting out the house!
But on the dog walk she kept suggesting we stop here or there for chips or a diet lemonade (😫) and pointing out posters of fried chicken and chips! Aghh!
Anyways as a compromise I've said when I next visit we will go to the shopping centre and I will 'plan in' a snack allowance on my food plan!
One time we stopped at a nice in-shop cafe and I had a teacake and hot chocolate which I really enjoyed but how many calories should I allocate to that? The teacake was quite large (like 6 inch diameter) with butter. The hot choc I had in a medium sized mug with sweeteners.
What other options would be possible? I ideally don't want to use more than 300 calories on it??
