Alas, I know what at least one culprit is: restaurant meals. I've already had a few this week and there's more to come — lots of fun events planned for the weekend!
- Tonight, Mrs. Cynicletary is joining me for dinner and a show! We're dining at Summer Shack (I will lean toward salad and grilled fish) beforehand, then seeing my baby star in You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown.
- Tomorrow, Brunie is meeting me and Husband at Legal Sea Foods (salad, grilled fish), and we're going together to Li'l Martini's final performance. I am such a stage mama, I know, but he is so good in this part, I love this show and the score, I need to see it at least two more times. So proud of my cherub!!
- Sunday, I'm meeting some Betsy-Tacy pals at the Concord Museum to see an exhibit of vintage clothing, similar to what Meg, Jo, Beth, and Amy might have worn, then we're heading to — can you guess? — a restaurant for dinner! I'm less familiar with the menu at Merchant's Row, I'll have to peruse it ahead of time and plan a good meal.
I love restaurants so much, particularly in the summer when it's hot and I'm too cranky to cook. Can a girl enjoy restaurants and still lose weight? I will do my best this weekend.
Mindfulness. That will be my key. Wish me luck!
