I have been so good about eating at home during the week for dinner. I take care of myself; my husband takes care of himself. I may not sound like a good Greek wife, but I am doing what I need to do to get thinner. He will be happy in the long run. Yesterday, on a Thursday night, he asked me to go to dinner with him and a friend because his friend's wife is out of town. I would have been fine to be left at home while he goes out, but for some reason he likes me to accompany him. So, the three of us went to dinner at the Valley Inn and I searched the menu for my best option. I settled on the Shrimp special, because shrimp has very few calories. It was served on a bed of couscous and mango salsa which may have been flavored with lots of fatty calories because it was quite delicious. Although I seldom drink these days, I also had a glass of red wine. I know I went off track of my super strict regime. Still, I made better choices that three weeks ago I never would have made. And the topper is I still got up this morning bright and early to exercise!
