Hope everyone had a great Mother's Day! I'm not a mom (unless you count my fur baby, Poki), but my day was spent cleaning, cooking and then going out with my family to Cheesecake Factory. It was fun, delisious, and oh so calorie-laden, BUT this is no pitty post. I went in to dinner with a plan and stuck to it... for the most part.
I looked up Cheesecake's menu earlier in the day and already knew what I was having: grilled mahi with a side of asparagus. I promised myself only two pieces of the bread and three bites of cheesecake. Well I ended up eating three pieces of bread and about half a cheesecake on my own but all in all, it was a major success for me because I actually stuck to ordering what I was suppose to... don't think I've ever done that before! I still came home overly and uncomfortably stuffed which is the next thing I need to work on...
Over the weekend I got an email from a fellow blogger who basically called me stupid. Of course she never used those words, but her email was so eye-opening for me, I told her I must be stupid for not realizing "it" on my own. "It" being the fact that over the last two or three weeks, almost all my posts have been bitching and complaining about how I suck at food choices. How my whole world gets turned upside-down if I eat a handful of M&M's. How I beat myself up to no end if I stray of course and have a bad day. How at the same time all this is happening, the number on the scale has been moving down!!
HELLO! Why didn't I see that? Sometimes it takes an outsider to see the whole picture because we are our own worse critics... glad I had someone to point out that obvious fact!
