Yesterday was the 4th. I went to a friends house then to my parents house. I ate too much. I have a love/hate relationship with cookouts. Open food tables is a danger zone for me. I always end up eating more than I intend to and then I get mad at myself. I did OK yesterday but still ate more than I would have on a normal Wednesday. Cookouts are definitely something that I need to work on. They are beginning to stress me out like eating out stresses me out. It can just be so hard to make the right choices when you are being so tempted. And I do all of the tricks that are recommended like drink a big bottle of water (I drink a lot of water all of the time...so this one doesn't really work), eat something healthy and high in protein before going (doesn't seem to work...I'll still eat to the point of uncomfortable) and I've tried various other things but nothing seems to work :(. Suggestions are welcome on how to not overeat at cookouts :)!
Happy Thursday :)
