Happy Friday! Let’s get this day going and get it over with!
One of my biggest struggles is eating out while trying to lose weight. It gives me serious anxiety. A majority of the time, I can look up the nutrition for restaurants but sometimes that is just not possible. Queue the anxiety. I know I can still make healthy choices where ever I go but I still feel like going out is a bad decision to begin with.
Earlier this week, a group of us decided we would go out Friday night to celebrate one our coworker’s birthday. Of course I enjoy spending time with my coworkers outside the office but then I remembered, I need to lose weight! I considered making up an excuse so I could come sit home, by myself and know exactly what I would be eating. The more I thought about it, the more I obsessed over it. Clearly, there are more important things in life that I should be paying attention than a few hours out with friends. Finally, I told myself I would go out, have a drink, something to eat, and not regret it. I know I have been exercising plenty and will continue to do so in the coming weeks so one night isn’t going to kill me. I can’t hide from the public and from food and become miserable, all because I wanted to lose a few pounds.
Well that’s my rant for today, thanks for listening!
