I've done well today so far!! I managed a healthier choice for lunch out - a steak salad at my favorite Puerto Rican restaurant that I rarely go to. I get so stuck in a rut of eating at the exact same place. Its hard for me sometimes to go to a different place because I usually eat lunch out alone. And the Puerto Rican restaurant is downtown, which I tend to avoid during weekday lunch times because I don't really want to run into people I went to law school with. I feel like a failure even though, logically, I know I'm far from it. But, I was downtown today because of an errand, really didn't want to eat at my regular place where I knew I'd get unnecessary chips and lemonade. So, I took my book, repeated to myself "I am successful. I am successful", went to the restaurant, had my favorite salad, and felt healthier all around for doing it. Yay!
