Enjoying Food

Did I mention how much I'm enjoying dating a chef? Last night, N cooked me a delicious piece of amber jack with vegetables and a corn custard on the side. It was absolutely delicious. I ate some warm cornbread with the meal (but I managed to only eat about 1/3 of a serving.) I also had a few glasses of red wine :) I hung out at the bar and talked to N as he cooked. And then after the kitchen closed, I got to meet some of N's closest friends. Overall, it was a very fun night. And I didn't eat too badly (points wise) either, so that's good.

I have been enjoying food so much lately, so I'm a bit worried about what's going to happen when I step on the scale on Thursday. I also have skimped on my workouts some. Basically, I need to get back on track and focus on losing weight. It's just hard for me to always keep weight loss as the top priority. Lately, I've been a little distracted by socializing and dating.

But today, I'm going to focus on me. My first freelance assignment is due this Friday, so today, after work, I'm going to start researching and doing the legwork for the article. Then tomorrow I'm going to write the article. That way, I'll have Thursday to edit and fine tune the writing. I also would like to get in some exercise today--maybe I'll do a pilates video at home or at least do some sit-ups. I plan on making a normal, healthy meal for myself--probably sausage, grilled asparagus, pasta, and a salad. And lastly I will go to bed by 10pm!!! At the moment, I'm functioning (barely) on less than 5 hours of sleep total for the past two days.

So wish me luck with getting back on track today :)

  1. I hear you on dating a chef!! My live in boyfriend is one and he makes some of the best meals, which is so nice. He actually made us amber jack a few months ago which is the first time I'd ever had or even heard of it!
