Today and tomorrow we have decided to celebrate my daughter’s sixth birthday. Her birthday is next week, but this weekend her Dad is home, so that takes the cake*. Today we went bowling (where I would have had buffalo crispy chicken strips, but didn’t), went to lunch after, (where they had pizza and burgers, and I had a salad) and went to a movie (where the kids had pop corn, the husband had drinks, and I had nothing). Plus they got Baskin Robins. Because everything else wasn’t tempting enough.
Sounds miserable, right?
It really wasn’t that bad. I’ve been with out for a while now, so I think if I can avoid giving in to the degree I used to, I can maintain a healthy lifestyle with out too much trouble. But, I’m pretty sure if at this moment if I gave in just a little too much, I would fatty out like a fat kid at a pastry buffet.
All in all I’m pretty happy with the healthy eating because after that initial terrible couple of weeks, I feel pretty good, every day. Not sure what’s for dinner, but we’re ordering out so I’ll probably make a salad here and steam broccoli and order lamb chops or a chicken grill. I really like Turkish and Arabic foods. They’re pretty simple and taste great.
This probably sounds crazy. I feel crazy saying it. But it really isn’t that bad for me right now. I feel pretty good. Obviously I can’t predict that it’ll be like this every day. That would be foolish. But yeah. I haven’t had any more food dreams, I don’t have any strong cravings for anything, and I feel great. It’s a pretty awesome thing!
Already went over my food, and I didn’t work out today. Felt pretty sore today but not in a terrible way at all. Just, aware of my muscles.
* pun intended.
