April 4

Friday, April 04, 2014

Last Night for dinner we had a coupon for $40 off at a nice restaurant we like. DH wanted to take me out - which is not my normal cup of tea on a Thursday. I like to stay home during the week because going out usually means we will be home late and I really need my 8 hours, especially with a jam packed weekend of activities coming up. But the coupon was expiring on Monday so I agreed; but, I was nervous about what I would pick for dinner and the wine emoticon
As I was reviewing the menu -- I "showed up" again (my April mantra) I ordered the small plate of grilled scallops and a side of grilled asparagus. DH had a loaded baked potato and I had a bite - which frankly was enough. I had a glass of amazing wine and DH wanted dessert. He had ice cream. I had a beautiful bowl of fresh berries and whipped cream. We were home by 9pm. I was in bed catching up on news on my ipad by 9:30. I feel great today! I hope you do too.
BTW: I showed up again today. Parked away from the building even in the rain. Brought yogurt, string cheese, 1 serving of bagel chips for lunch.
Make it a good Friday all! Peace

    I love your mantra! Way to go with the choices. I know that there were times when I initially felt like I was cheating myself if I didn't go for the burger or what I truly thought I wanted, but now, it is all about the healthy eating. I don't deprive myself, though. So if it's a burger and I just have to have it, I do. To me, the wine is so worth it -it's heart healthy, right?!
    Have a beautiful day! I hope the rain let's up!
