Struggled a bit today, but made it through...

Sunday, October 19, 2014

Today I hosted an event at my house which was basically a meet and greet for a Facebook group I admin. I kept snacks to a homemade Guacamole (with Greek Yogourt) and Terra Chips as I knew there would be food brought in by others.

That really worried me because I didn't make time before hand to eat a proper meal, so I knew I would be hungry, and stressed because I was the host, and contrary to what people think of me...I am NOT and extrovert. I don't do well with groups of people I have never met before either.

But I really managed to not eat everything in sight...and the food I happened to like the most was this 'spinach brownie' although I have no clue why it is called that.

It was really more of a quiche cut into brownie like squares.

I munched mid day but never really did much more damage...I ate decent foods...all home made other than the terra chips I think I did well...

I didn't track, which is something I should be a bit more mindful of, but the main thin is, I made it out alive and not self-loathing!

    Sounds like you did great! I understand how stressful such situations can be (I'm not an extrovert either!).

    I think you did great! Choosing fresh foods and keeping portion sizes in mind is more important than tracking. Keeping hydrated with water too. Good job! emoticon

    I'm also "NOT an extrovert", so I totally feel for you there...... heck, I consider myself an "introvert in active recovery" - have come to the conclusion that coasting by with an introverted personality style has caused me more grief and trouble than I need to deal with, and as such have determined that a certain change - a "makeover" as it were - is due to be made.........

    I also don't track what I eat (frankly, there's not enough time in a day for that - I've used the Spark tracker and while I see where it can help, it's just too time- and computer resource-intensive for me to regularly use for long periods).......

    "Spinach brownie", eh........sounds intriguing!

    Keep up the great work!
