Summertime is bad for weightloss

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!!!
