I'm organizing a breakfast at church tomorrow, and co-hosting a baby shower tomorrow afternoon. Kind of tough for someone with food issues. I'm making candy, a cheese ball and some dip for the baby shower. When making the candy, I decided that chocolate would be far too much torture to deal with, so I'm using vanilla. (The baby shower has a rubber duck theme, and I'm using a rubber duck candy mold to make candy - so cute!)
I had a little bit of trouble when making the cheese ball last night. I could probably eat almost the entire thing by myself in one sitting. But I didn't test it. I didn't lick the spoon when I was done. I didn't "lick the bowl".
Tomorrow, I'm planning to eat a healthy breakfast at home and I probably won't eat anything at church. I might eat some fruit, but that's all. Since I'm organizing it, I'm sure I'll be busy doing things other than eating. I'm planning to eat a healthy lunch before the baby shower. I don't plan to eat much, if anything, there either. Maybe some fruit and veggies. The other foods could too easily cause a downhill tumble into unhealthy habits.
I don't know if my plan for handling these situations is "right". I guess it doesn't matter unless it's right for me. Am I setting myself up for failure by going to what some would consider extreme measures to avoid eating at these events?
