This is what I didn't have at tonight's Christmas Party!
Wish me luck. Tonight is our office Christmas party! I'll let you know how it went later tonight ...
Update 10:45 pm - I'm back home now. I just had a satisfying LC snack and I'm ready to proclaim ... I did not succumb to the temptation of pepperoni pizza, free soda & spirits and crouton-laden Caesar salad! Hooray!
What I did do is prepare ahead of time. I brought a hearty dinner to have prior to going to the bowling alley for the party. I ate my LC dinner, drank my nutritional supplements and then departed for an evening of knocking down bowling pins with my colleagues.
I had thought that I might enjoy a drink or two, to mellow myself out. But, it seemed like the only thing on tap was beer and mixed-drinks. I'm not a beer or mixed-drink kind of guy. Red wine's my game. So, I just stuck with bottled-water.
All told, not a bad evening. I got some exercise (bowling). I hung out with some cool people and I "stuck to my guns".
I'll chalk this up as a victory.
