Valentine's Day Food... Mmmmmm.

What can I say?  I gave into some awesomely delicious food yesterday for Valentine's Day.  I had some candy at work and then the good stuff came when I got to my boyfriend's apartment.  He had an awesome candle lit dinner cooked and ready for me last night, which included teryaki marinated steak, grilled veggies, potatoes, a salad with my favorite dressing and croutons, and some awesome Beringer white zinfandel.  He even baked a cake for us to enjoy!  :) 

He's probably going to be embarassed that I put up this photo of the cake, but it tasted so awesome!  He said he wasn't the most artistic person in the world, but I loved his decorating skills.  :)  He put so much thought into this dinner, and I really appreciated each and every minute of it.  Plus, I loved the diamond earrings and two dozen flowers he got me, as well.  Needless to say, it was one of the best (if not the best) Valentine's Day I've ever had.  The best part, though, was being surrounded by my wonderful boyfriend, friends, and family that I love dearly.  That's what it's all about. 

I know one day isn't going to make or break you, but consistent "one days" off of the diet path will.  This isn't going to be a habit, but I will have to say that I enjoyed each and every bit of food that went into my mouth.  You know how people say that the cravings for sweets go away if you don't eat them?  Well, that isn't entirely true.  I guess I'm a sugarholic and am trying to stay "sober", but if the temptation is there on special occasions, it's difficult to turn away. 

I didn't work out this morning - fell back asleep and didn't really have time.  I'm going to try to eat correctly today, even though we're going out to lunch with the new coworker.  I've gotta imprint "salad, salad, salad" into my brain today.  Making up for the awesome food yesterday isn't too fun, but it's so worth it. 

How was everyone's Valentine's Day?  Hope it went well and that you got to enjoy being with people you love!
