Today Im hosting a BBQ at my house. It will really tax my will power but Im determined to keep focused on the goal. We're BBQ'ing chicken and hamburgers so I plan on having chicken and salad. I have made a jello salad along with a lettuce salad. There will be lots of deserts including a big pan of blueberry pudding cheesecake bake that I made. I do plan on allowing myself a piece of that. I figure if I leave the chips, hamburgers, pasta salads, potato salads and all other deserts alone I should be okay.
One of the big problems I have on days like today is that I dont use recipes so I have to taste everything to see if its made right. My baked beans are a touch of this and dash of that so I'm going to have to be very careful to not get into a tasting pattern that could add unwanted calories.
I wish I had a better eating plan in place really. I will have to formulate one here real soon. If I dont know exactly what I can have and how many calories I will be eating I get into big trouble!
Well Im off to enjoy the day. Dont forget the men who have fought and died for our country! I thank every one of them from the bottom of my heart.
Thank you all for your cheers and words of encouragement on my pics below!
