So Sundays are a challenge for me diet-wise, our family visits my SO's parents, both in their 80s. But they are pretty active and enjoy nice meals. I often help with the cooking. Usually we have snacks (chips and dip) in the late afternoon and a big meal at dinner, with cocktails and dessert. On diets that allowed scheduleded cheat days or "re-feeds" this was always one.
Today I brought over some of the grass fed pork chops I got, they made a big pasta salad and a garden salad and we had some sautéed zucchini, the first from their garden. So they poured me a cocktail, and I sipped at it until a sufficient time passed and then poured it down the sink and replaced it with ice water with lime. I managed to avoid all the chips and crackers.
Dinner was easy enough, I took the tiniest spoonful of pasta salad and lots of the veggies and a big pork chop, which I cooked on the grill like a steak, it was perfect (if I do say so myself). I kinda pushed around the pasta salad as I ate everything else and then finally made a big show of complimenting my Mother-out-law on how good the pasta salad was (it was), while putting down my fork in a way that showed my meal had ended.
Dessert was a small piece of watermelon and we were done. I am pretty happy that the meal was within guidelines mostly and I really enjoyed everything. Now the next challenge is several business lunches and dinners that I'll need to navigate through. But so far I've done pretty well.
I managed to take a 4-mile walk today as well, and later had a nice swim.
