Pool party success! Cook out success!  Two events yesterday that could have been terrible pitfalls, but all worked out well. I planned ahead. I had lots of sparkling water on hand. I took foods that I could eat. I focused on the socializing and not the food.

I didn’t miss the booze.  I haven’t wanted to “kill all the things” as the Whole 30 book said I might.

My allergies have dissipated a lot! That’s a good thing.  I’m also still easily sleeping 9-10 hours a night, which is weird for me.  I’m  not sure if that is related to this, or not.

Fourth of July success, too! I was at the pool all day today with friends. Again, planning was key.  I took food I could have. I took lots of sparkling water, and I just set it in my mind before I went that it would be a good day without needing junk food or adult beverages.  I looked at the chips on the table, but I wasn’t tempted by them. The temptation was freshly grilled corn on the cob. But I didn’t indulge.

I may have this. I hope I do.
