Okay, somethings got to give. I've been banking on April being the month that I could really lose a lot of weight because the calender was empty. May was looking horrific when it came to social events. May is my birthday, Mothers day, Memorial Day, a ladies overnight retreat and a ladies 2 day conference! Can you see the food? Have mercy!
So April was going to give me a jump on May. It's not to be. Within two days April filled up. It now reads like this. Tonight, movie and dinner with friends. Next Friday night Im going with a couple girlfriends to hear a mommy comedian at Rolling Hills Church. You all might have heard this lady on You Tube. She's the one that sings all the things a mommy says in a days time to the William Tell Overture. I cant wait. I love stuff like that. When my girlfriend called and said she had five tickets and did I want to go I jumped up and down with excitement. But at that point she hadn't mentioned food.
She called back later and said the women wanted to go out for a bite to eat before we go! Do you hear that? A bite to eat. Who has just a bite to eat? Why do we use that term? To salve our consciences? We wouldn't dare say we were going to go out to scarf some food and add to our cellulite, now would we? I don't want to go have a bite to eat. Its all those bites that have gotten me where I am.
Okay so that's on the 12th. I no sooner hung up with her then the phone rang again and it was another girlfriend getting a group of mamas together to go out for an evening of dining and fellowship. Some of my closest friends are going. This event is planned for April 18!
That is a food event three weekends out of the month. I've already opted out of the Sunday evening spring banquet at church. I also think I'm going to stay home from the April 18 dinner. Some where I have to put my health needs first.
I've thought about just attending all the events and drinking protein shakes and salads on all the in between days. I don't know. Ive got to figure something out. The situation will only get worse with summer coming on and all the camping and back yard BBQ's. There is nothing at a BBQ that is diet friendly save grilled chicken. BBQ's consist of salads loaded with dressings and cold ice cream deserts, hot dogs and greasy hamburgers, white buns and mayo. It's hard.
Okay, I have to go put a plan together. Im going to have to really mean business here to survive.
