a doctor tries to practice what she preaches to lose weight

Its Memorial Day  which means summer has begun. Most people pack on the pounds in the winter. I tend to pack them on in the summer. In the summer you get to exercise more. For me I get to party more. It seems every weekend is a party or a barbecue. If not barbecue it’s vacation. It’s hard to keep up with exercise and a challenge to eat healthy. Chips, dips, alcohol. I know there are lots of healthy choices but it’s hard! I bring my snack but a some point the mindless snacking that comes with social events kicks in! I’m not hungry. My husband says I’m bored. I don’t have an attention span for idle chatter. He plays dominoes at these events. The women sit around talk and eat. I will have to figure out my place because I spend too much time at these events not too.  I will have to plan better for the day. make sure I get my exercise in for the day, I have also started to avoid hard alcohol. It just takes to long to recover. My strategy for today is to bring my wine. Bring a healthy dish like the veggie tray and chew gum;) maybe I’ll blog, but I get accused of being anti social. That’s because I am!!!

  1. I hear you, Dr Kay. I think that having a workday filled with dozens of people wanting and needing our undivided attention can leave us with little social energy.
    An idea: Can you be the badminton provider or horseshoe pro at these little bashes? Having something active to do rather than standing around trying to talk and trying not to eat might be a little more enjoyable for you.

  2. we enjoy following your blog, thanks 🙂
