Tomorrow is my birthday. My husband has been working twelve hour days, so he suggested doing my birthday today. I was fine with that. We started with lunch, and then hit the mall, where he bought me a few nice things.
The victory was at lunch. We don't eat out a lot, but when we do, I've always scoured the menu for what I thought would be the biggest meal, and then eaten every bite of it. Today, we went to my favorite mexican restaurant, but I went for a nice burrito meal instead of the deluxe enchilada combo meal. We did get an appetizer, but I didn't polish off the remaining sour cream on the appetizer plate with the chips they gave us, as I normally would. Finally, I brought half my meal home, to have for lunch tomorrow.
I feel like I achieved something today. I can go to a restaurant, and have a "normal" meal. I don't have to hit one extreme or the other. I feel good.
