After I had a little mini-meltdown on someone else’s post, I decided I might need to explore this more and get some advice. How do you survive the holidays? It’s not like it’s Christmas, where I feel “ok” about splurging a little. Who knows how I’ll handle that this year though.
But it’s only Fourth of July. I’m sure they’ll be hamburgers and hotdogs at the party. I’m hoping for some veggies, since my friend did thoughtfully ask what I could and couldn’t eat. So- if I do want a hamburger, I will definitely need to avoid the bun at all costs. That won’t be too terribly bad, right? And I don’t need any sweet treats. I’m ok without that. As long as it’s not cheesecake… My weakness!!!!
BUT- here’s the real conundrum: what do I drink all day? Don’t say water… Seriously. I like vodka. We go back a long time and have had our rough patches but it’s always been there for me.
I started last year drinking vodka with sprite zero to save cals. I forget- are there still carbs in zero? I know my redbull zero is no carbs, no calories and no sugar but not sure about sprite. Oh- but redbull?! I could drink vodka with some redbull zero I think.
I also was wondering about adding it to my crystal light. Like water and crystal light with vodka but I don’t know how that would taste. I had a trainer once tell me to put crystal light in straight vodka but I’m not in my 20s anymore- not quite sure if I’m up for all that.
So what are your thoughts? The more I think about it, I don’t want to give in and have a cheat day. I don’t want to set myself back just because it happens to be a holiday and they’ll be lots of temptation.
But I’m going to need a plan so I can stay on track and not make this disastrous.
Oh- maybe I should fill up and eat before I go, too. I may still be tempted to munch, but at least I wouldn’t be starving and hopefully I can save calories this way.
Any other thoughts or ideas?
What are your plans for the fourth?
