Well, I am happy to say my husband is much improved. Unfortunately, he still did not feel up to going out today, so we delayed our trip to visit with our children again. We will try for next week. In a way, it may have worked out best for us to go next week because one of our sons would not have been able to be there. I was ok with it all this morning, but as the day wore on, I was a little sad we could not have gone.
But I did not let it get to my diet!! I instead went down to my sewing room and worked on mending and another project. Both jobs are now complete, so time for a new project! Hmm, what will it be? Napkins or a wall hanging? Table runner? My mind is spinning...

Well , this was not a good weekend for me. I think it started on Valentine's day with going out to eat. I was prepared to be able to eat something a little more special than what I would usually order, but ended up getting a a chicken breast and broccoli. So when I got home, I began my little pity party again and ate without sitting at the table. I think I didn't go too crazy.
Then Saturday we went to the Auto Show. Again, I was prepared with my food and brought a healthy lunch along with me. Again when we got home, I was feeling deprived. I ate more than I knew I should have.
Sunday, we had guests for dinner. I had planned one eating just a small amount of the meat dish I prepared and fill my plate with salad, but I caved in again!
So today, I am getting back my focus again. I am doing well so far today. Sitting at the table is something I will have to continue to work on. I have been drinking plenty and eating lots of vegetables. Supper will be a big salad with some turkey added for protein. I must and wil persevere.

Our plan for the day totally changed. We were supposed to go see our two oldest children and do some errands in that area, but the plans fell through. So my husband decided he wants to take me out for Valentine's Day. He is really so sweet. He really would spoil me rotten if I let him.
Unfortunately, whenever he wants to go out to eat lately, it just brings me to tears. I know there are ways to eat healthy while dining out, but I feel like I am just getting back on the right path right now and don't want to deal with any extra temptation. My husband tries to encourage me and shows me all the things on the menu he thinks would be good. Problem is, if we don't go to a place that has their nutrition info available, I feel like I have lost control. I know I could order a salad or grilled chicken breast, but I can do that at home.
So now since he wants to go out so badly, I feel like I must make some food sacrifices ahead of time so that I can try to stay in my calorie range. So I will go light on breakfast and lunch and hope that it is good enough.
I was so down this morning that I didn't even want to take my daily walk. But I know that if I don't walk, it will be so much easier to not want to continue. So I pushed past those feelings and did my walk, but just a much slower pace than normal. That was my compromise and I guess my reward for sticking to my walking plan.

I am so proud of myself. I have managed to eat all of my food at the table for three days now. That is a big thing for me! It is just so easy to put food in my mouth while I stand and cook. Yesterday I even baked some blueberry muffins and made myself sit in order to sample part of one. Huge victory for me!!
Also, my friends came to visit today. It was just so nice being able to see them again and catch up on things. I served a healthy lunch of soup and salad and blueberry muffins. I was going to make a dessert, but decided not to. I don't need the extra temptation, but I sure do like to bake!
Instead of making that dessert, I went and worked on my sewing room and am happy to say I am to the point where I can use it! I still have a little bit of organizing to do with my fabric, but it is not too bad right now. I am so anxious to do some sewing!!!
