A little more difficult at this time of the year and especially with a half day/evening out socialising with little control over the menu.
So my plan is to eat my normal breakfast which is a cup of reduced-fat milk heated in the microwave with coffee added after, and two pieces of raisin toast with a light spread of gold n canola lite.
My lunch will be some left-over chicken breast with salad; mixed leaves, cucumber, and tomato.
Functions start from about 2pm so I will try to stick with fruit and veg and limit myself to 2 small glasses of still white wine until the approximate time when I would normally eat dinner. I will try to drink a glass of water for each of the glasses of wine I consume. For dinner I will eat the healthiest protein I can find while being mindful of portion size and try to stick with salad, avoiding anything that looks heavily dressed.
My issues with socialising are drinking too much and mindlessly snacking on potato chips or crackers and cheese. If I can limit these things I won't gain back any weight I have lost and I will have the bonus of not being hung over, thus being able to put all my energy into my Saturday workout. Wish me luck.
