My Day 11

Thursday, May 23, 2013

It's pouring rain this morning. No outdoor painting this morning! The porch is 3/4 done...yay, so maybe the rest done later today or Saturday.

I had an extra snack last night b/c I was tooo hungry, but how nice it was to choose something healthy and portion-controlled rather than junk!!!

So, plans for today were to go for a long walk with a friend, but we may be doing exercises inside or maybe a mall-walk.

Our 40th anniversary is coming up and we're going out for supper with friends. I've already scoped out the menu at the restaurant and chosen my dinner...pre-planning is my BEST way to stay on-track! I find if I do this before I get there and read all the yummy choices on the menu, I can take the emotion out of the choice so my dinner is based on what my brain wants me to eat, rather than what my tummy wants me to eat!

Onward I go.

If it is to be, it is up to me.

    Congratulations on nearly reaching the 40th Anniversary! Your pre-planning of the meal choice is excellent, and your planning of healthy snacks when you need them is very wise. Well done, Sandi!
