Eyes Bigger Then Our Stomach!

Sunday, June 23, 2013

Yesterday my Aunt from Mississippi invited me to go eat lunch with her..My Aunt is 3 years older then I am and we are best friends..she is also on the journey to good health.,,I hadn't seen her in a while and she looks Amazing..We decided to eat at Red Lobster it's our favorite as we were deciding what to eat..I said we should get the chili shrimps on the bed of lettuce for appetizer(if you have never tried them please good!) then we decided that heck we was going to go all out..not worry about what we are we both got the $15.99 came with a soup, salad, your choice of meal and a dessert.. that's alot we knew...and laughed the whole we ate the appetizer(we got to split 6 shrimps among ourselves)...then came the salad(more lettuce)..we ate them..but by the time we finish our salads..we was stuff! We laughed some more and said our eyes are bigger then our stomach this we asked the waitress to bring us some take out boxes and she said you ladies haven't even ate anything..we said we did and we are full...she goes on to say, I have seen plenty of people get this deal and no one has ever taking that much food home...she then go on to say are you ladies sure that you guys don't want to sit longer and maybe you will get hungry..I am like What? little girl you are so messing up your tips..Nicely as we could be we said NO! So after we left the restaurant we decided since we did so good about not eating all that food(I gave my food to my Hubby and so did she) That we would reward we went to the mall..we bought Bath and BodyWorks lotions and sprays(they had a 75% off sale(YAY)..then we went to Belks and brought plenty of earrings(75% off sale)..we got 6 pairs each for $22 bucks(we was high fiving about that time!)..I am so proud of myself because all this week I have been sick and still manage to eat right and workout..see now my body has gotten use to me eating right and I couldn't eat all that food if I wanted to..still laughing at myself and screaming inside Go Angelia! Go!

I hope that you all have enjoyed your weekend..tomorrow is Monday and this is the last week in this Month..make it COUNT!

Blessings and enjoy your Sunday! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon Just Enjoy emoticon

    That sounds like a great idea to give the rest of the food to hubby and to go shopping!
That all sounded like you both had a lot of fun!

    Don't let anyone throw a monkey wrench up in your success!!! This is the first time I have ever heard of anyone telling you to sit longer to eat the rest?! Seriously! That is a mess!!

God bless,

  This is so exciting isn't it when we discover just how much we have changed as we are changing our eating habits to lose weight. What we once ate we don't even want anymore because we are so accustomed to eating healthy.

The same with exercising and being more active during the day and we even get to crave exercise and activity.
