A diet with a lot of food...

I feel like I am on a diet. If you've ever been on one, you will know what I mean. I am at the compulsive stage where if it were a diet I would not put one morsel of forbidden food in my mouth! I would spit it out before swallowing because I knew one bite could lead to 30. Of course, the compulsive stage never lasts, at least for me :). Right now I am compulsive about cooking dinners. We are going out to dinner Saturday night with friends and it has me slightly stressed. (Jeanne, if you are reading this, yes, I still want to go!) Only because I am afraid to fall off the wagon, so to speak. It is a dinner worth going out for: our whole family is going with good friends who's son, is leaving for Parma, Italy for 5 months.(We'll really miss you Brian!) We will have a great time. It's not a spur of the moment, lazy, let's eat out dinner.It's an event and we are all looking forward to it. But of course, I am little afraid that I will come home and lose my resolve to not go out again for a long time. I am determined though to live a life with balance, to enjoy going out but make it an occasion, not a habit. And so, I just made the reservations...

But, I can't spend too much time worrying about this; I need to go brine my chicken for dinner!! :)


  1. Where is dinner out? Yes everything we do is complusive! But YOU can do this! Happy dining! I actually get sick of eating out and enjoy eating at home at times! Everything in moderation

  2. This coming from a woman who has lived on egg whites, chicken breast and sweet potatoes!! :) We are going to da Capo in Avon...new restaurant, very good.
