So it wasn't my most stellar day, but it wasn't horrible either. Bill started sending me text messages at work about what to do for dinner. I'd planned on walking when I got home, and then having a nice salmon burger with veggies and cottage cheese for a meal. We ended up talking ourselves into going to Chang's instead. We're really far too easy sometimes! LOL He had originally suggested walking down to Hollywood to get dinner, but it would have been too much to fit into my day at that point, so we opted for a lower-calorie meal at Chang's. It was really good, and yes I splurged and had a small bowl of soft serve ice cream with a bit of chocolate syrup.
Being able to adapt at a moment's notice is part of living this healthy lifestyle like you mean it, not just giving it lip service. Changes happen, big or small, slowly or in a blink of an eye. Rollin' with it is the way to go!
