We promised you a week of football, but before we get to those festivities, let’s talk about the holiday. For those of you who weren’t paying attention, today is Labor Day. And to celebrate the symbolic end of summer, many Americans party properly with the quintessential American get-together: the barbeque.
But don’t panic; you’ve got this in the bag. You’ve been preparing for this very moment and working hard to learn and practice the new habits that will reshape your lifestyle into a healthy haven.
So when temptation strikes, here are a couple of reminders on how to battle the urge to splurge during today’s festivities:
• Arrive Full. Plan to eat your Nutrisystem® entrée prior to the party. Starting the party with a full tummy is a surefire way to stop cravings in their tracks.
• Drink Up. Water, that is. This will help keep you full and satisfied throughout the day and into the evening.
• Come Prepared. Bring along a big salad full of fresh summer veggies and fill your plate to snack on at the party. Use a SmartCarb and add some fruit to your plate.
• Be a Butterfly. A social butterfly, that is. Parties and family gatherings can be centered on eating, so take the focus off the food and enjoy sharing laughs and great conversation with the ones you love.
Remember you can party with the best of them—and still stay perfectly on track!
