A wonderful day
Friday, February 26, 2010
Today was a beautiful day. I walked more than 3 miles along the beach with a close friend who was in town for the day. We enjoyed dinner at a restaurant, and shared each other's laughter and smiles. She found a cutie in the sports store and made conversation with him til I arrived.. then made me blush like crazy while she asked him all sorts of crazy questions and flirted FOR me.. making it clear to him that I was single.. and just when I thought he was the bashful one and I was embarrassed for him.. he made his move and lets just say I got sold a pair of hiking boots AND a phone number :) I had a wonderful time.
I am thinking carefully about how to word this blog because the message I want to communicate is that I am judging my day by the beauty and the tastes and the experiences.. not the food. I realized the past two days, that I've had to relax on the diet and do my best. Some meals have been great, others, have been a bit different, but I've learned from them. I'm realizing that I need more protein, the lunches and dinners have been a bit small for my needs. Any meal at a restaurant consequently feels like I just went to a food eating contest.. I may want to stick to appetizers in the future. But honestly, I learned so much just seeing how different my tastes are. I couldn't stand the thought of having cheese in my dishes!
I'm so tired I can barely finish this.. but I just wanted to share with all of you to remember to live in the midst of our life changes.. and to learn from every experience, even if you would have previously characterized it as defeat :)
