I often here from clients that when go to social events, they feel left out or they just don’t go. If they do go, they are the girl in the corner with duck tape of their mouths and handcuffed to a chair so that they won’t go over board with treats and booze.
Do you really want to give a cookie or a glass a wine all that power??
Why not be “That Girl” who can attend social events and know that you can enjoy yourself, but not lose it. Give yourself permission to enjoy social events. Go there with the intention of enjoying other people’s company. Have protein and veggies. Eat before you go.
Us, girls of a certain age, we don’t have many spontaneous things that come up. So.. we know when we will be attending events, so plan for it in your week. During the week enjoy your healthy lifestyle (workout out and eat on track) and then know that you are going to an event that you will enjoy yourself with moderation.
I know this sounds weird, but I have a 2 bite rule. If I don’t like it in 2 bites, I toss it. No.. it’s not wasting food, it’s helping me to stay on track. I’ve long given up on being a member of the clean your plate club.
