The perfect opportunity came up today to test a theory I had. During a work function where a 3 course meal and lots of alcohol were the main attractions, was it possible to loose weight.
The answer is Yes!! I always drink lots of water before and after I eat a little something, so today was no different. (looking forward to the leftovers tomorrow I might add!!) I never go without exercising, yet tonight I will give it miss. Partly because I drank lots of Coolers and wines, so stability and balance is not my forte, if you know what I mean? Yet, I managed to loose weight. What did I do differently?
I moved as much as possible when I could. In between courses I took fast walks to the bar, ladies room and smoking area. My behind bopped up & down in my chair to the music. I mingled, wriggled and giggled the whole way through. I also parked far away so running to and from the restaurant was not optional.
Now that I have my theory tested I will hone my skills at every function to come.
