Valentine's Day is hard on the diet!

Sunday, February 14, 2010

Okay...we went to see a play at a local Community theater and then went to a favorite spot...an italian restaurant....and it was very good, spaghetti & sausage...and a cannoli.

The calorie count was alarming....but I stayed within my calorie range. I have only one other time got within my range, prefering to actually eat less.

Back on the straight and narrow toworrow...but it was a fine meal. Luckily, we do not eat there often, as pasta is a weakness for me having grown up with a lot of italian food.

    There is nothing wrong in splurging once in a while. It's when you splurge every day that you get in trouble.

    Holidays are tough. I made Funfetti cookies to take to church and I didn't sample them, I didn't eat the dough or lick the spoon. And I don't feel deprived.
    Happy Valentine's Day!

    Yeah, I found it hard too! My partner wanted to go to a Spanish tapas restaurant, where everything is served with a dollop (at least!) of olive oil. And he wanted me to have dessert! Good thing about tapas, there are lots of plates, and you can choose the ones you eat from: go with the broiled salmon, go light with the veggie gratin, and have angel food cake with blueberries for dessert (although I *really* wanted the chocolate souflee, sigh!)

    Congrats on making it through the day within your calorie range! Good news is, tomorrow will be easier! emoticon

    Mexican food is my weakness and it is a constant challenge to stay away from the restaurant we have here in Cloverdale. emoticon emoticon
