A Great Night Out


We had a fantastic night out on the town last night. It felt like the days when we were just dating. We walked around the city for awhile taking in the lights and sights (lots of interesting people watching) before going to dinner at this great restaurant that was a buzz of activity and energy. You will see a recipe for caramel apple martinis which I love...I indulged a little. Funny, just one made me feel rather zippy skippy. My husband was on a roll with the funny, witty comments and I laughed so much that I thought my cheeks would crack. It was great just relaxing, enjoying ourselves and not having to worry about our little guy.

Food wise I did quite well. I only ate to the point where I was starting to feel full and I felt great...until...we decided to go to an old dessert place we haven't been to in years for coffee. This place makes cakes and cheesecakes that are of Flintstone's rib proportion (huge!) and I simply couldn't resist ordering a piece. It was divine. A symphony of palatal flavours...sooooo good. I would like to say it was my opportunity to ensure that indeed my band was still in place and functioning and boy did it let me know I had gone too far into the wild blue yonder. I ended up with a belly ache...not a stomach ache...a true belly ache...I had eating way too much. Lesson learned, even though I am not near a sweet spot yet, it is not time to spot the sweets and go! Lol. All in all, I had a great time and today I will set the treadmill incline a little steeper to celebrate the good time...lol. Have a great Sunday everyone!

I love caramel apple martinis! Sounds like you did great, don't worry about a little dessert but next time try for just a few bites!

Isn't it fun to just have fun. We can't put life on hold just to lose weight. Glad you had such a good relaxing time. I snuck in some wine last night with dinner out and it was so good.
