You gotta Keep 'em Separated
This morning I managed to make my little sister a breakfast burrito with egg, sausage and cheese - yet eat Fiber One instead. I deserve a gold medal.
Ok.. ok.. so I made a smaller one for myself for my morning snack 2 hours later. BUT, the triumph is eating something separate. Dinner tonight will be difficult as well. Mom is making some pork chop pot roast dish. It smells heavenly right now.
Monday will be a birthday celebration for a good friend. I believe we're going somewhere for $1 burger night. Argh!
If I was isolated for 30 days, I would have no problem plugging away. But, living in the real world and (thankfully) having people in my life, means that my choice to do this 30 days of cereal will bring me into conflict with what other people eat.
I know this is a common dilemma for those going through dietary changes. If my only change was to "eat healthy", it wouldn't be a problem to engage those around me in the efforts. However, in my particular project, I don't think I can convince friends to eat cereal for dinner at the restaurant Monday.
Any readers have tricks for what's helped them get through a separate diet from those around you?
