I did so good! We arrived and as usual there was all the pre-lunch snacks, lollies and chips everywhere on the tables. None passed my lips. Lunch was a buffet of festive delight, I stuck with salads but that is because I don't like meat. Pasta, roast vegetable, green salads nom nom. Dessert I did have some chocolate mousse and fruit salad, but I resisted cheesecake, chocolate eclairs, pavlova, trifle and ice cream.
I wasn't even trying, I wasn't tempted in the slightest by the lollies and chips, when normally I'd be munching on them from the moment I sat down. The salads were all healthy too, nothing with fatty dressing nu-uh. The roast vege salad was one I made (potato, pumpkin, kumara, carrot, mixed nuts all roasted and the dressing was a light coating of balsamic vinegar, basil and honey all mixed), its so good it is my new fav salad.
I didn't leave feeling all bloaty and sick. Usually afterwards its like too much need sleep argh. I felt good and in control.
