Day 9 -Nervous...
Well I was 100% again yesterday...which was day 9. Didn't lose anymore weight but that's ok.
Wondering what your experience has been in the following type of situation...
I have a family reunion coming up before this challenge will be over. I am wondering how difficult this will be. I feel pretty good about being able to make good food choices, it is a potluck...so basically I will have to bring my own food, and likely prepare it there. It's also a 6 hour drive, so it will be overnight and food along the way. I'm not sure how to do this! I mean I don't want to just have to eat side salads the whole way down there while watching everyone else eat whatever. Do I just live on bananas....I think I might have to do a lot of before work.
But what I'm really not sure about is once getting there, I will be making a smoothie in the morning for example, or eating my own dishes only. These are smart people, a lot of teachers and nurses in the pack too...and this will easily attract their attention. There are also a few vegetarians and a vegan. I wonder if they will freak out basically....will they think I'm over the top? What is the best way for me to explain/defend myself without starting a big debate about it....or should a debate be ok? I'm just not sure I can advocate yet, in such a smart crowd. Especially a crowd that has so much education on nutrition for example....ie. the food guide.
Should I just say I'm doing a 30 day challenge? ...and lead them to believe at the end of thirty days I will become normal again?
Ok, got kids starting to pile up around me...tata.
