Every year the company I work for has an employee recognition lunch and today was the day! We always go to Olive Garden, which is one of my favorite places to eat. Since I don't eat out much, I hadn't been there since before my surgery. I was a little nervous about eating there. You just never know how things are going to go down, especially when you're talking about restaurant food.
I ordered the soup and salad and had a few bites of each. I also had TWO (yes TWO) bread sticks and about three tablespoons of Alfredo sauce to dip them in. You can see where my food priorities are when it comes to Olive Garden. All in all it was a completely satisfying meal that I enjoyed 100%.
I am often surprised by how much I enjoy the way I eat these days. I like eating slowly and especially eating all I want to eat at each meal. I feel satisfied when I eat. It is weird that I seldom felt satisfied before, even when I was Thanksgiving-dinner STUFFED! I always wanted to eat more, more, more, even when I chose not to eat more.
Life is so much better these days!
Hey, look at me! Two posts in one day!
