I struggle with weekends, so a long holiday weekend is always extra challenging. During this time I like to be social, but unfortunately the way society works is social=food/drinks.
It’s taken me a loooooong time to balance this healthy lifestyle with life in general, but it’s still difficult. The weather’s perfect. Everyone is eating good food and drinking all weekend. For me and my goals, I can barely get by with ONE of these days, let alone THREE!
So, I’ve had to train myself to look at this differently. I chose this lifestyle, and I wouldn’t change it for the world. I can indulge in moderation, but excessively indulging and setting myself back from my goals will be more upsetting than passing up a few drinks and food. I’ve had to learn that I can have just as much fun without these things because at the end of the day, everything is what I make of it!
