I've been feeling really bad about myself because I caved and had Halloween candy, and I've been so mad and hateful! Then, I went out to dinner last night with Dan for our anniversary. There are a lot of cool places in this town where I want to eat, but my parents sent us a gift card to Red Lobster, so that was where we went. And as I sat there having cheddar biscuits that I wasn't used to having, Caesar salad that had way too much parmesan cheese on it, broccoli that had a ton of salt on it, and Dan had something-alfredo that we never have, it occurred to me that we are not used to eating like that anymore. I've been on SP for 5 years and my life has changed. Not only am I not used to eating Red Lobster fare anymore, I also... can't go a day without some kind of activity...I need a bottle of water with me wherever I go and I will go back home to get it if I forget it...I will make a special trip to the store to get specific healthy foods I want...count fruit/vegetable servings daily automatically in my head...the list goes on.
I told Dan last night that for our 20th anniversary next year, I want to go to the dr. together with him for his-&-her appointments. That we should give each other the gift of good health and we should get checked out and go together so we can support each other. He thinks I'm nuts. IDK, I don't think I'm nuts. What do you think?
However he was very much in favor of a long weekend getaway next year without the kids, which we haven't done since 2001. He keeps naming off a bunch of different places that I want to take the kids to! Like Niagara Falls. The East Coast. Places like that. I just want to run away to Galena or Starved Rock or something close where we can just be low key and enjoy ourselves. Spouses sure change over time.
Well, I guess that's about all. I have to get out and RUN today! I was supposed to do it yesterday and it was 30 degrees and raining/sleeting; but now it's 32 and clear. I have 3 5K's in November so I'd better get out there before they sneak up on me!!!
