Where has this week gone?!?! I have a big Saturday night planned this weekend. I'm going out for dinner with a friend I'm meeting in person for the first time. We have been friends for nearly 18 years now, and we're meeting tomorrow night. I'm excited, and a bit nervous. We're going to an Italian place for drinks and dinner. By "drinks" I mean a single glass of sangria, and since he wants to meet an hour before our reservations, I'll be doing a lot of nursing of one glass. I don't really drink... as in, I haven't had a sip of alcohol in probably a year or more... so one will be plenty for me, thanks.
I'm not stressing at all about not having healthy food. This is truly an extraordinarily out of the ordinary event for me. Dh and I don't tend to spend a lot of money on dinners out, so going to a nicer restaurant is an absolute rarity for me. Also, I suspect that I'm not going to have a huge appetite and will be more focused on the company than the food, so that will automatically help with portion control. Other than that, I'm just going to enjoy it.
Today has not been a successful day, I won't lie. No good excuse, either. But I have enjoyed it. When dh got off work this morning it began vacation for him, so we had a celebratory breakfast. Then I went back to bed and slept most of the day again. When I woke up, I hurried and got dressed and went to the nail salon for my manicure. I wanted to beat the after-work crowd. Friday evenings after work is a terrible terrible time for getting your nails done, but I wanted to wait until afternoon to give me less of an opportunity to mess them up before dinner tomorrow. Fortunately I made it just in time and only had a short wait. By the time I was done they were hopping.
After that I was hungry, and took the easy way out and hit Taco Bell. I had plans to cook, but that didn't work out. Mostly because I am lazy, crampy, and knew I'd mess up my nails. Dh was less than pleased to be fed Taco Bell when he thought he was getting a home cooked dinner, but he survived.
Once dinner was done I got very bored, so we decided to go drop off the recycling. And I stopped at Starbucks and got a White Chocolate Mocha. It was nonfat, but still... BAD choice. Tasty, though.
Okay, done 'fessin up my bad day. I definitely didn't make good food choices today, but it hasn't been a bad day. Just a day I shouldn't make habit of, and I won't. I'd be lying if I didn't admit to being irritated with myself, but it is what it is. What's done is done.
I'm gonna spend the rest of tonight NOT beating myself up over today. Instead I'm going to keep sipping my water and read my Prevention magazine and make plans to do better in the future.
Hope everyone has had a great Friday!
