Time for grilling outdoors, days at the beach, relaxing meals al fresco... and lots and lots of parties, events and get-togethers. Summer (and spring) are my favorite times of year. But how do you stick to a healthy diet (and even exercise plan) when you are constantly going out for drinks and dinners and parties?? What a problem to have huh? :)
Me? I try to stick to one glass of wine that I can sip slowly. I try-but sometimes I just need two glasses, ok? :)
Working out in the morning is a great idea too as it frees up the evenings for fun. I'll sometimes try to eat something healthy like a piece of chicken before I go out, so I am not starving for bar food or other junk. Nicer bars usually have healthier options like salads or seafood appetizers. There will be a few healthy snack options at most parties, but I'll still try and have a snack (nuts) before I head out. Eating something also helps to keep me from getting drunk off of that first sip of wine!
I'd love to hear your tips! What do you do to stay healthy during party season?
