Can I Still Have a Social Life? #PSPfit

October 14 2013 | CeCe Olisa

Do you ever feel like the minute you decide to get on track with your eating, you become super popular?

Last Thursday, I decided that I’d get a jumpstart on Clean Eating so that I could be in a good mindset when #PSPfit boot camp starts. I committed to eating 100% clean (No processed food, no fast food, no alcohol). Since then, I’ve had invites to dinner, drinks and this afternoon I was roped into baking a cake for a company fundraiser, pray for me… my apartment smells amazing but because of my binge eating issues, my plan is to make this cake and not eat any of it *deep breath*

I’ve come to the conclusion that there’s never a “good time” to get your eating on track. There’s never a month with no birthdays or dates or parties, so I have to start figuring out how my social life works when I’m in the process of loving my body through clean eating, which is the best way I’ve found to manage my PCOS. So, once again its up to me to set my priorities. Right now, with #PSPfit boot camp coming up, its easy for me to make the better decision, but its important for me to focus on how to make those decisions when I’m not hyped up to get healthy with you guys.

In #PSPfit Cycle 1, our Nutrition Coach, Abra taught us that ordering off the sides menu is a good place to find clean foods in a restaurant. So, last week when Robert and I went to dinner, he ordered wings and fries, I ordered a sauteed spinach and a salad… and I didn’t even steal one of his fries!

I didn’t have any less fun because I ate clean and I didn’t wake up the next morning feeling like I had to “work off last nights meal” at the gym, which is impossible by the way. I’m so happy with my decision, but I need to remember to make the same choice in two months, ya know?

Anyway– I can’t wait for #PSPfit Boot Camp to start, so we can support each other through the social events and figure out how to navigate the holiday party circuit and still reach/maintain our goals.

What are some of your tricks to staying on track when being social?

    Well I haven’t gotten that popular… yet (lol). Well I think it’s all about planning. I’m trying something new…after ever bite of food to sip some water (more like gulp). I’m also trying to drink a bottle/glass before I start eating. This help you get full quicker. Also if I know I got an event I try to eat on the lower end of my calorie range a day or two prior to the event. Definitely make sure I get in all my workouts and add a few additional minutes/reps as well.

    Water is definitely my friend when I’m trying not to have a glass of wine. Eating healthier throughout the day will also curb my appetite when I go out. I then try to eat a piece of fish and veggies with lots of water. It’s hard, but it gets easier each time you do it. Good luck!

    It’s hard at the beginning, but now i’m just honest with friends that i’m meeting – for example today a friend texted asking if I wanted to go for pizza. I replied saying I was on Slimming World and was doing really well so could we go for coffee or for a drink? She replied “of course, I don’t want to ruin your diet!” good friends will understand I will support. However if she insisted we go (because the world shouldn’t revolve around my diet) then I would have had something small but filling like protein and salad to make sure I didn’t indulge too much – it’s all in moderation after all, you’ve got to treat yourself every now and again 😉
