Every year I make all that cranberry sauce for a Christmas party that is for the agency I volunteer with for people with mental health issues. I always have fun and love seeing so many people I know.
First I made sure to go out on a walk to get some activity points in. I also packed up some veggies my own stuffing, fruit and yogurt so that I won't have to go near the dessert table :) Since I help to serve the dinner to over 200 people there isn't usually much left by the time I get to eat which is probably a good thing. I did choose a little gravy, potato and turkey and took my own stuffing/veggies/fruit. I call it a win!
I know one small dessert wouldn't have killed me but it would have started a downward spiral into sugar/junk so it's best not to go near the foods that I know trigger binge eating.
The other things I made sure to do was to have a protein filled breakfast and an on plan lunch.
