Our plan for the day totally changed. We were supposed to go see our two oldest children and do some errands in that area, but the plans fell through. So my husband decided he wants to take me out for Valentine's Day. He is really so sweet. He really would spoil me rotten if I let him.
Unfortunately, whenever he wants to go out to eat lately, it just brings me to tears. I know there are ways to eat healthy while dining out, but I feel like I am just getting back on the right path right now and don't want to deal with any extra temptation. My husband tries to encourage me and shows me all the things on the menu he thinks would be good. Problem is, if we don't go to a place that has their nutrition info available, I feel like I have lost control. I know I could order a salad or grilled chicken breast, but I can do that at home.
So now since he wants to go out so badly, I feel like I must make some food sacrifices ahead of time so that I can try to stay in my calorie range. So I will go light on breakfast and lunch and hope that it is good enough.
I was so down this morning that I didn't even want to take my daily walk. But I know that if I don't walk, it will be so much easier to not want to continue. So I pushed past those feelings and did my walk, but just a much slower pace than normal. That was my compromise and I guess my reward for sticking to my walking plan.
