I am back on track, and I feel much better. Weekdays are easy for me because I have control over what I cook and what is in my fridge. It's the weekends that kill me. It's pretty hard to eat out and eat low calorie healthy foods. But I LOVE the dining out experience and I know I won't give that up. I'm too old to suffer like that. I just have to learn to better navigate the menus. Today I made a giant pot of peppery chicken soup. Hopefully it will stay in my house more than two days. My kids and husband love soup. I do too. It's a true comfort food, especially on cold evenings like tonight. Today is Valentine's Day and my husband was wise in buying me flowers and not chocolates. I will try not to sneak any of my daughter's candy! I figured out that my will-power purely depends on how I feel when I wake up. I just don't get it. What makes one day so different from the next? Now granted, I know some "hormonal" days beg for chocolate and it can be a bad thing if I don't get it! But what about all the other days? Some mornings I feel so positive and borderline enthusiastic about losing weight. And then other days, I could give a rats rump. I think if I could figure out that mystery then maybe, just maybe, I could stick to my diet better. Happy Valentine's Day!
