Life is about making choices. Making decisions about everything. Then we have to accept, acknowledge, and live with our decisions. While I'm not ready to make a life changing decision just yet, I have made some choices with my eating today.
I ate an OK breakfast, toast (my usual Saturday 'treat'). Lunch was sushi and a mandarin. Snack was chocolate ice cream (not portioned, straight from the carton). That was the bad choice of the day.
Then I did some shopping therapy and walked out with a new workout top and a light jacket. The top is a nice green, and made of really nice, light, material. A size small, too! The jacket is fairly thin, so it won't be too hot when I run, but it will shield me from wind and light rain. I have needed one for ages, so I'm glad I finally got one.
Close to dinner time I text a friend. I don't like texting people, because I feel like I'm bothering them. But tonight I was unbearably lonely so I text her and asked if we could hang out. She suggested dinner, so I jumped at the chance to have some company. Turns out, she has been feeling just as lonely as me! We have made a pact to get in contact if we are lonely, and to be there for each other. We live only 10 minutes drive apart, so it is a good plan. Anyway, we went to a grilled chicken place. I ordered the grilled, BBQ chicken thighs (5 small pieces), the grilled corn cob with butter on the side, and a sprite zero. Not a bad dinner if you ask me.
Tomorrow I am going to the gym, having coffee with a friend, doing the shopping and doing some work. Busy, busy day!
