I indulged tonight, but I feel ok about it

Thursday, June 13, 2013

It's my husband's birthday today, and I treated him to the restaurant of his choice--a local Mexican restaurant about 2/3 of a mile from our house. We biked there.

I ate responsibly, but when dessert time came DH asked if I'd like to share a fried ice cream. This restaurant has the best fried ice cream. I hesitated but said yes. It has been a long, long time since I've eaten a restaurant dessert.

We biked to the library, a thrift store, and then home, about five miles total.

I am content, knowing this was a special splurge, and I enjoyed the dessert and the time with DH.

    Good for you!! Splurges are good for our spirits!

    The worse thing we can do in maintenance
    is attach negative emotions to our eating
    experiences. Guilt and fear are the worse of
    these.Eat and enjoy, then return to your normal
    eating patterns. It works! emoticon
