Last night was a blast! We, myself and 5 other people, decided to go see Iron Man 3 last night. Our original plan was to go see the 7:00 show and go eat afterwards but by the time 6:30 came around I was getting pretty hungry. Instead we went ahead and decided to eat before the show and switched our show time to 9:00. The consensus was that we would go to Applebee's. I'll admit this was my first time going to a restaurant since I've been on a diet that didn't serve something other than salad. To say that I was a bit wary is an understatement. I did excellent however. I ordered their California shrimp salad with no dressing. It came with avocado and bacon on it however so I picked that off and gave it to my mother. She, by the way, had their bourbon black and blue cheeseburger. It was smothered in cheese and bacon and all around tasty goodness and she ate it right next to me. (She gained this morning and I didn't so it was worth not eating that crap.) Surprisingly I wasn't too tempted by her burger. My salad was tasty and it filled me up. After dinner we went to the show and it was excellent. I'll refrain from giving out any spoilers but I will tell you that after the movie and the credits there is a little video clip. I'll leave it up to you if you choose to stay and watch it. It felt like the credits were 30 minutes long and the video clip at the end really wasn't worth the wait to me.
Tomorrow is Mother's day and our first day of maintenance. I'm looking forward to celebrating my mother and the huge accomplishment of completing phase 2 of my diet. I really didn't expect to make it this far so I'm pretty proud that we've done it.
