I made deviled egg "eyes" for the party:
I ate really well before the party, but didn't eat dinner at home, knowing I'd have a few snacks at the party. Chris and I promised each other that we would NOT overeat and end the night feeling gross and we totally kept that promise!!
I had a deviled egg, two meatballs, a few veggies dipped in hummus and a homemade whoopie pie (pumpkin and cream cheese filling - wow).
I was full and stopped eating!
That's a total win for me - not overdoing it. I have a big problem with binging at social events, feeling out of control. I'm not at a place in my life where I am ready to go total abstinence. I stay about 90 to 95% Paleo and let a little loose on the other 5 to 10%.. Which works for my life and my health, but not if I binge when I do it!
Felt great :) especially since we stayed at the party till 3 AM and I didn't fall prey to late night drunk snacking (I was drinking though - but I'd fill a huge cup with seltzer and splash some vodka into it .. Kept me hydrated! Also it took a long time to drink all that seltzer so I wasn't going back again and again for more drinks, like if I was drinking wine or beer).
It was nice to party all night with friends and not feel yucky after - that's always been my goal!
Ok - off to start the new workweek <3
