Making choices

Saturday, September 15, 2012

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!

    So nice that you and your friend were there for each other. Your chocolate card made me laugh.

    Hope you have a terrific weekend!

    I am like you with calling people. I won't call anyone unless I absolutely have to because I feel like I'm bothering them. I don't mind texting, though. Wish I had a friend to hang out with. All my friends have kids and controlling husbands. :(

    Good food choices! Well...maybe not eating the ice cream right out of the carton, but it's not like you're going to do that every day!! You did it, now move on. Chocolate...when I was younger, I couldn't get enough of the stuff in any form. Now, I don't have the cravings I once did, and I prefer a good dark chocolate to anything else. I have a special candy dish for dark chocolate that's not in plain sight. I know its there, but that doesn't bother me. I can have 6 pieces at a time, but I never do; usually have 3, and that's maybe once every 2 weeks or so. SO, have hope! I'm glad you met up with your girlfriend! We women need to cherish our friendships with each other!
