So this weekend we have 2 nights out....
Tonight we have friends over for dinner, my OH is planning on cooking sausage and mash and we normally get through a fair (large!) amount of red wine. And then after dinner we'll be walking to the pub for more drinks!
I am armed with coping strategies! I've bought really good quality sausages so they're lower syns, and I plan on making my own SW friendly mash while they all have the 'full of butter' version OH always makes! And of course I'll be having my veggies or salad on the side. I'm swapping wine for gin and slimline tonic and will be drinking water or diet fizz in between gins. And I'll stick to shorts and diet mixers in the pub.
Then on Saturday we are at some other friends for the night, again for dinner and staying the night, usually involving quite a lot more red wine! I have no idea what they're cooking so will have to do the best I can.
So coping strategies for Saturday are that I plan to firstly eat a banana on the way so I'm not starving and don't eat so much at dinner. Breakfast will usually be a fry up which I should be able to adapt without too much trouble. Again I'll stick to G&T, and water/diet fizz in between gins.
I've also got the every-cloud-has-a-silver-lining that I've been battling a chest infection this week and might flake out early (they're good friends and won't mind), which means less drinking time lol.
For both days I'll be saving my syns through the day.
Hope my willpower holds! Wish me luck!
