Eating out too much at restaurants

Motivational Quote of the Day: "Our eyes are placed in front because it is more important to look ahead than to look back." From the Motivational Spark Pages.
I needed to hear this today! Although I do feel I am really getting back on track with making the best choices possible, my weekends are not easy. Mainly because my husband travels for work and when he gets home on the weekend, he wants to spend time going out and about town to do things together as a family, and that includes going out to eat. This past weekend we ended up eating out 4 times!!! That is just ridiculous. I should have spoken up and said no, but I knew he just wanted to go out to have a good time.
I've got to find a way to work with this because even the best layed plans at a resturant, from asking for your food to be prepared in a special way, to taking half of it home, doesn't always work out the way I want it to. I like to feel more in control of my choies at home--I just do better that way.
And so, even though I tried a food plan for last weekend, it didn't work out as well as I had hoped. So now I have to plan ahead for this weekend. We already have plans for a retirement party at a restaurant on Sunday, so somehow I need to speak up and let my husband know that needs to be my limit. No matter how successful my weekdays are, if I bottom out on the weeknds, I'll just end up spinning my wheels.
