This weekend, I knew that we would be hanging out with friends on Sunday to watch a playoff game, so I wanted that to be our only activity that would tempt us. I went so far as declaring that G could not call anyone to make plans for Saturday, even though he wanted to. However, I don't always want to be this restrictive--I want to be able to have fun without consuming copious amounts of calories. I hope I can learn to do this, and live like a normal person on the weekends, but for the first weekend, I decided to be super strict.
So far, so good. We ate stuffed squash and chicken sausage for dinner last night, and I have a bean casserole in the oven tonight. I'm particularly impressed with our efforts today because we were out shopping and really wanted to get Chick Fil A. We can usually rationalize Chick Fil A because it's healthier than other fast food, but we decided it just wasn't the best idea.
Now, we just have to stay away from the liquor cabinet--another major weekend temptation.
