The Company Event.. I Survived

Saturday, February 17, 2018

Every year my Company has a event in Atlantic City. For me it is work, as I am there as the admin support for the team . I make sure all hotel rooms, conference rooms, and several other parts in pieces are in check. This is not a solo action, as I am part of team. It's a lot of work, but something I look forward to each year. The food is amazing, I get to dress up, etc. In keeping with my clean slate thought process, and lifestyle change I really gave alot of thought on how I was going to handle the event. I would have 3 days of being in a hotel, not cooking or shopping for myself. Was I going to go off the rails, and give in to every last whim. Was I going to turn down everything, and hide away in my room. With age comes wisdom, that seems to be more clear to be this year than ever before. At 53 years old. I'm done sufferring, making foolish choices. This year, I decided to do my best to not over indulge and hold back the few days before the event and just be mindful of my choices. If I gained, know the gain came because I had what I really enjoyed and was worth it. I just didnt want any mindless eating.

I accepted an invitation to dinner from Co Workers and had an amazing time. The night of the event I actually passed on most of the cocktail hour. For the first time, because I really didn't care for what they were serving. Dinner came I had everything including dessert which I didn't finish. Which is amazing for me. Because I've always finished everything on my plate just because it was there.

Ready to face the music, my weekly weigh in has yielded a great result.
I'm down 1 pound. Gained or Loss I'm really proud of the fact that I planned
for the event ahead of time and stuck with that plan.
