Dinner last night for my mom’s birthday!! My grandma took us to a very expensive wonderful restaurant that my mom LOVES!! She always gets the most expensive steak on the menu. I, on the other hand, am obsessed with FISH! And on the menu was a super expensive Halibut that I would never in a million years be able to afford … but hey?! I wasn’t paying! So I ordered it 🙂
And boy was a I glad I did…
It was gone in literally 10 minutes. The waitress came over and said, “Well, I see you hated your fish…” I also got a side of salty/crunchy sweet potato fries and a side salad to start with! YUM!
I was super full afterward, but not overly full, which is awful. I usually end up eating way to much on these “family” dinners because I am so nervous for them all day (yes nervous,because so many people around to “evaluate” my eating and not having control of exactly how it is cooked…) but last night I just ordered what looked good and ate it all! I am getting better at this! The anxiety wasn’t nearly as high as it usually is! Progress!
Speaking of progress, I have also gone about 2.5 weeks now without weighing myself and eating lots more… for a few days there I was dying to get on the scale, but now I definitely DONT want to know. I know the number will be much bigger than a few weeks ago, and I am ok with that, but I still don’t know how I would handle actually reading it on the scale.– You know what I mean?
Anyways, check out how stylish my grandma is! Have you guys heard of Lilly Pulitzer dresses? Apparently they were HUGE in the 60’s (?) and now they are making a major comeback!
Being back home for a hot second meant TRADER JOES!! As I branch out on my food, I decided that a cute little tub of animal crackers would be a wonderful addition to my meals/snacks! They are delicious! More like a cookie really… I will have to be careful not to sit down and eat the entire tub!!
I plan on a long run today! It is really cold right now in Indy 😦 and after a few weeks of warm weather running I am not sure If I can handle a cold run! (Yes, wimp). So either waiting for some “warmer” afternoon temps, or…. tomorrow maybe?
I have homework allllll day. That should be number 1. But squeezing in a long run is so much more fun to think about!!
Anyone own a Lilly Pulitzer? Do you want one?
Favorite Trader Joes Food? (I am pretty new to TJ’s and would love recommendations!)
