How I'm Doing So Far

Survivor

I made it through the beach party and am quite pleased with how it went.

As I said, i called ahead to find out what was going on the grill and nothing plan friendly, so I thawed and marinated a piece of fish and took that to throw on the grill. The fish was delish. I didn't even look at the various meats that were in the buffet line. I did have a crab biter and about 1/4 cup of crab n rice. I love it and crab season (land crabs from Andros) is just once a year so it's not often I indulge. I also had an ear of fresh grilled corn minus the butter and seasoning and a bit of the salad, which was unfortunately pre-mixed with a ton of dressing.

It wasn't 100% on track, but good Lord when i think about the scarfing that would have happened just a week ago, i'm amazed. And i avoided all the liquor and sodas and had lots of water in my fancy schmancy 24oz Tervis Tumbler.

Best part is, I was satisfied and it felt so nice to go to a party and not end up feeling stuffed to the gills.

Thanks to all who encouraged me to go!

Here are a couple of pics from the place we had the party. Paradise Found!

Isn't the water just glorious?! Too bad I wasn't allowed in


There's a rock jetty separating the beach in front of my friend's place and another to the right


The sunsets from this place are amazing
