We went and saw The Shape of Water last night. I LOVED IT. Much better than Lady Bird (although I did like that one, too.) This was a nice homage to old classic films, in a sense to Beauty and the Beast, with even a nod to old-time monster movies. (but in the best way possible.) Sally Hawkins in the lead role was spectacular! I highly recommend it!
We also went to dinner, and I had a bun free burger with guac, and a few onion rings instead of french fries.
After the movie, I suggested we go to Baskin Robbins for HIM to get some ice cream. He didn’t want to put me in a tempting situation, but I assured him I was completely fine sitting there and talking with him while he ate it, and I WAS. I had absolutely no desire for any, not even a warm brownie that you can also get without ice cream if you want it that way….and in fact, I silently felt a little proud of myself over the whole thing. No desire for any sugar whatsoever! I LOVE being back in the groove of healthy eating. It’s very good not only for the body, but for the ego/psyche as well! Instead of feeling guilty, feeling proud of how you are respecting your body! 🙂
I’m even making more of an effort to curl my hair better, and wear lipstick with the rest of my make-up; both of which I hadn’t done in a couple of years (i.e., on retrospect, stopped when I stopped eating healthy.) It’s amazing how when you start to feel a little better about yourself, it spills into other aspects of your life!
