Here’s what I ate today:
Today was a stellar day in terms of protein and activity: I got in 91 grams of protein, all from food. No protein drinks needed! According to Fitbit, I earned 640 calories of activity today from all the walking and standing I did at work and after work today, so I call that a win.
Because I am involved in a couple of organizations that have social functions that often involve food, I find myself attending many receptions and parties where appetizers are passed and where alcohol is served. Tonight was no exception, as I attended a reception for my alma mater’s new President in the home of a fellow alumni couple, and there were appetizers and alcohol present. How to navigate situations like this can be a challenge, but they don’t have to be.
I thought I’d share some of the strategies I’ve employed when finding myself in these situations so that if you are also a post-op, these might be useful to you.
