Saturday was my birthday. My son showed me a fortune from a fortune cookie that morning 'Everything in moderation, even moderation' and I took it as my theme for the weekend. I let myself splurge and I had a great splurge :-) I weighed in this morning up a few pounds but I suspect I'll be right back where I was Saturday morning by next Saturday morning. I weigh less than I did last Monday so I don't even feel like I did any 'damage'.
We celebrated my birthday at The Melting Pot. My first time ever and, oh my, it was wonderful. All the way around it was a wonderful meal. Very, very happy with that splurge. We continued it by picking up a bottle of my favorite of the wines in my wine flight to enjoy back at home :-)
Yesterday we celebrated again since my son was off on a camping trip Saturday. We went to Not Your Average Joe's for lunch and then off to see The Hunger Games. I ordered an entree that I have thoroughly enjoyed in the past but, alas, my taste buds have changed and it was just too sweet this time. I should have gone with the ultimate splurge of the mustard crusted chicken! Live and learn. I had plenty of bread and a beer so by the time it came to order my free desert (I got a coupon for a free entree and a free desert for my birthday from them!), I was just too full and, instead of just eating one anyway because it was 'free', I passed on desert. After the movie we had chocolate peanut butter fondue back at home though with lots of fresh fruit, pound cake, and marshmallow treats. Like I said, a weekend-long splurge.
Today I'm back at it though. A nice healthy breakfast and a good long spell at the gym. It felt good to workout. Now that I'm doing Centergy on Monday mornings I am realizing just how stiff I am after a weekend of not working out. Really must think about a BW or yoga or stretching routine for the weekend.
