Social Life vs. Staying on Track

Appero (n.)— short for appertif, an appero is when you get together with people in a social setting to drink (lots of) wine and eat (lots of) snacks that are mainly cheese and bread based, because it’s France.

Considering I live in this tiny village, meeting the few people my age for apperos is pretty much the only time I ‘get out’. On days I know my evenings will be full of carbs and sodium, I eat extra healthy during the day for balance.

But what trips me up, is a day like today— when I didn’t have plans and I have already eaten my daily allowance of carbs and fat, and only then my friends decide to get together. And yes, I could say no to that extra glass of wine (which I usually do) or that seriously delicious garlic-herb cheese on baguette (such a painful ‘no’). But when my host starts scrambling to provide me other options when he or she thinks I just don’t like what’s being offered, I feel awful and that combined with distraction from conversation, I end up eating a slice of bread.. or four. 

Le sigh.

Not having a scale is kind of a double-edged sword for me.

On the one hand, I don’t obsess about the number but I can appreciate how my clothes fit, or how I look in the mirror. Considering I’m focusing on building muscle as much as losing weight, the numbers aren’t as important.

Buuuuut it’s really frustrating to not be able to get a quantitative idea of how much progress I’ve made. I have a routine doctor’s appointment next week and it will be the first time I’ll check my weight in almost three months -.-

I literally add a mixture of chopped onion, ginger, garlic and jalapenos to everything from eggs to chicken. I keep it pre-chopped in a giant tupperware box. 
Good to know what tastes excellent is also good for my health!

I love how creative I’ve become in the kitchen.

Instead of eating the same salad day in and day out, I’ve started experimenting more and it’s fucking amazing. For lunch today I made an amazing tuna salad on whole grain bread with tea. Mmm tea. My day is incomplete without eight hundred cups of tea. 

But really, I’ve had tuna salad like once in my life, but I saw it’s way low cal and with a little light mayo, mustard and chopped onions/ginger/jalapenos it was muy deliciouso. And I made it an open faced sandwich to cut down on extra carbs.

All in all about 250 calories and it only took 10 minutes to make. Perfect :)
