It’s Monday again! How was everyone’s weekend. Mine was mostly pretty dang awesome. Only one minor issue which I will get to in a moment.
First the highlights.
Friday night I hung out with 2 of my sisters Carolyn and Shannon!! We watched the Katy Perry movie together, painted our fingernails, and ate parfaits that I made as dessert. We all really loved the movie. Katy Perry seems like a fun person. The main theme of the movie was to ALWAYS BE YOURSELF!! This was a great reminder for me as I am still trying to find my groove in blogging. Too many times I try to change the way I write to be like someone else. Why do I do that? I’m not sure. But I’m gonna quit that. Starting now!
The rest of the weekend was spent relaxing for the most part with my man which is always a good time. At one point we decided to go out for eat. We had wanted to ride our bikes to the restaurant but it started raining for the first time in months right when we wanted to go! So this is where I went a little crazy. So for the last last few months I’ve made some huge strides in getting over some bad habits when it comes to eating out. For probably 2 years I would get really stressed when we would go out to eat for the following reasons:
- not knowing exactly how many calories were in the food
- not knowing all the ingredients
- not letting myself order exactly what I wanted
It was a bad place for me because it made what should be a fun dining experience a terrible one. It put me in a bad mood and I would get mad at Dom for no reason. Lucky for me he is very patient and understanding. Anyway, like I said I’ve been doing really well at not stressing and just enjoying being in the moment and enjoying some delicious food with my husband. This time when we went out to eat though all of the negative thoughts came back and I had a mini breakdown. I think the reasons were because I had never been to the restaurant before (Fuddruckers) so I didn’t really know what to expect. I felt awful. I was mad at myself for having these feelings again when I had been doing so great for awhile. But ya know what I got over it and had a great lunch. It really helped telling Dom exactly what was bothering me. Once I voiced my worries and frustrations I knew I sounded silly. I have a bad habit of keeping things bottled up but it always helps when I just let it out. I’m happy I got over it because I had a delicious meal. I ended up getting the ostrich burger. I had it w/o the bun with lots of veggies including grilled onions:) Yum. I had never tried ostrich before but apparently it is much leaner than beef and even chicken. And guess what? It tastes great. Very comparable to beef. Who woulda thought?
Sorry for such a wordy, hopefully you stuck with me on it!
Do you like Katy Perry?
Can you relate to my eating out fears?
