Fabulous Cheat Day (without the guilt!)
Friday, July 01, 2011
Today I had the most amazing day with my hubby. We almost never get to go out together, given both of our schedules, lack of extra money, and the fact that we have two small children that are hard to keep up with for just anyone to watch. But there was nothing really out of the ordinary about this date. Just movie and lunch. I had such a good time.
At the movie we shared a small popcorn. Yes, with butter. We also went to a yummy mexican restaurant where I got a fabulous smothered burrito with pork chili verde on top. Amazingly, I could only eat half and brought the rest home. (It's sad, but I used to be able to eat the entire plate and then some right there in the restuarant.) I'm happy to say that I enjoyed my food without worrying about making the scale go up. I even had a little fried ice cream (again, shared with the hubby). It's been so long since we've eaten out (even fast food) that it was a real treat. And I know it won't happen again for a long time. I know that come morning, I will go back on the strict phase 1 plan and eat healthy. Because I feel so much better physically.
