Today will be a brief blog. I am in Bodega Bay to celebrate the wedding of one of my closest friends to her BFF. We spent the day in the pool while my oldest daughter tried tanning and just ended up sunburning. I brought snacks along for the trip, however found myself wanting something besides what I brought. I was pretty good avoiding most of the temptations that were right in my face. I did enjoy a small bite of my daughters cookie and a couple peanut butter pretzels. Since I have been avoiding so many foods that could cause inflammation it will be a good test (wink) as to the affects they have on me in small doses.
We all went down to dinner as a group and I made sure I ordered foods that were within the “Anti-Inflammatory” diet. I had bites of goat cheese, some sweet potatoes, chicken and a freakin’ AWESOME Beet Salad. I am so mad I didn’t bring my camera or phone to document how pretty the salad was.
Tomorrow is the wedding as well as a brunch following the ceremony. I know I can do this, but I feel like I could possibly fall apart in the morning without my shake. My shake is my daily breakfast and it has all the good things my body needs to get going. Without phone reception I can’t text Heather for support, so I am on my own. Although, I am not 100% alone. I have my family and my friends here to support me. I will make it, and I will enjoy the beautiful surroundings as well.
