Noboru Posted October 26, 2012 Share Posted October 26, 2012 I'm on day 20 (somehow) and it hasn't been too hard, as I'm used to buying veggies several times a week and cooking from scratch at home. I should note that I live in Shanghai, China, so we have little veggie vendor stalls dotting our street. Very convenient, though I certainly cannot vouch for their organic quality! My problem is this: tonight is a friend's birthday party. It'll be in a restaurant (I'll eat before I go) and will essentially be a piss-up, to put it frankly. I can deal with not having a glass of wine or two (have survived a few weekends of low key Friday night outings already, with soda water in hand). What I'm dreading is being the only sober one out there. Also, I'm getting really sick of soda water. I'm kind of dreading the whole thing. The other thing I'm dreading is this weekend. I have to go away for work to a nearby city. My train is at 10am Saturday, and I'm heading straight to the work venue from the train. I work 2pm-6:30pm Saturday, then will be driven to my hotel. That neighbourhood doesn't have any restaurants that are compliant (been there before). Won't have access to a kitchen. There will be a breakfast buffet that I can maybe sneak some veggies and meat from for my lunch (but nervous because the work venue has no fridge). After work on Sunday, I take the train back to Shanghai and get home around 8pm. No idea what I'll be able to do for dinner, as there are only fast food joints at the train station. What can I do, to make these next few days doable? Even just moral support would help. I'm starting to panic. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
