Well, maybe I should clarify? I miss food that's been prepared for me. This whole healthy lifestyle is manageable, but I'm a believer in moderation. Frank's been so gun-ho over our weightloss efforts we've been pretty strict in maintaining our healthy habits.
When we originally agreed to the "get fit" plan, I'd make six dinners a week, with one day off. We've only had two dinners out, Villa Locale and Aranya Thai Bistro. Every other meal I've eaten has been prepared at home (or microwaved at work). Frank did make me a breakfast sandwich (whole grain english muffin, egg whites, cheddar and turkey bacon) on Saturday, that was nice. Still, going from a few meals out a week (sometimes, two a day), to this, is tough. Not only is it a change in diet, but a change in lifestyle. It's the lifestyle aspect that I'm having a hard time settling into. I truly enjoy dining out. I miss the conversation while waiting for the meal, digging into a dish I didn't prepare, and having someone wait on and clean up after me. These days I prep, cook, and clean. Rinse. Lather. Repeat.
I certainly don't want to break our stride. We're making great progress (21 lbs for him, 9 lbs for me). I was spoiled, and now I'm being pouty. When I do get a good meal out, I'll enjoy it that much more -- that's for sure.
