That’s me…chipping away at bad habits.  I still have enough to keep me working quite a while. 

Went out with the girls last night to Cheddars.  I didn’t eat anything but a small bowl of cereal yesterday because I knew I’d be going out.  Still wasted quite a few calories, however.  I ordered a drink that was kind of like a pina colada.  It turned out to be HUGE and I didn’t really like it.  I’m more into mocha flavored drinks.  Even so, I drank the whole thing and ordered fatty fried food.  Funny how the thought processes work.  Cheddars and night out with the girls means fattening food and drinks.  That’s how I think.  I’ll skip eating and eat super lite today but it doesn’t occur to me to order lite fare at Cheddars.  Kinda feels like going to an amusement park and only riding the merry-go-round.  Me?  I want the roller coasters!  LeeAnn ordered grilled salmon, corn and green beans.  Not me.  Of course, my weight is back at 207 this morning.

That’s okay.  I’m chipping away.  Today, I’m actually going to try some step aerobics for a few minutes.  At least, that’s the goal.  Also have a ton of housework and yardwork on the agenda. 

Guess I’d better get moving.

I think the reason why we do that is we just need a night out to blow off steam. Whether it be frustration from everyday life, diet restriction, or just kicking back and wanting to feel that happy feeling from chatting, drinking, and indulging in yummy fattening food! So, I think it’s great you aren’t beating yourself up. It’s not those once in a while treats that will keep you fat — it’s the everyday choices that do! Now, if you go out 2 or 3 times a week, yeah, you might want to make better choices 2 out of the 3 times. But if you only go out once in a while, then you can have a treat night since life really is all about balance.

Btw, so glad to see you are still here! I remember reading your blog back when I started mine originally in 2009, I think!
