Yesterday was a pretty normal day. I ate my usual Paleo foods (getting easier) and went to UFX class for 40 mins. I left early to go on a second date with a guy I met last week. This guy is sweet, genuinue and extrememly funny. I didn't really realize how endearing it is to have someone make you laugh all the time. That sounds so cliche but there is something about him that I like. He's interesting and has some amazing stories. Things are moving slow and I like that as I have learned in recent experiences, moving too fast never works out. Its just the change I need. I think its keeping me level headed and I just want to get to know him and see how things pan out!
So I have a funny story about our dinner and I am only being honest because I need to be, this is the place right? It was an honest mistake and Its life it happens sometimes. So last night I 100% accidently ate cheese! For starters we went to a place and I thought ok I'll get lettuce wraps for dinner. They always had this chicken, with Lettuce and 3 salsas. Of course they took that off the menu so I was like crap, what do I get? This is a place that is appitizer and sandwich heavy. Finally I spotted a taco salad that usually comes in a taco shell bowl. I asked the waiter to bring it to me without dressing and without the shell bowl. I scanned the ingredients somehow missing the shredded cheese. I will also add that I picked a cider with the lowest sugar content (gluten free!). I am seriously trying to do this right! So we get our food and start eating. I then realize there is shredded cheese in my salad! I am silently saing "NOOO, crap crap crap". If I was with friends I totally would have sent it back but picture this, I am on a date. I don't want to come off as a compelte psycho. Obviously if I continue seeing him, I will also talk about what I am doing, I just don't want it to be a big deal for now. So I picked around it the best I could but I honestly lost my appitite. I was so dissapointed, I barely wanted to eat it. It seems so silly but I am trying so hard. This is just an example of what life will be like if I continue eating Paleo. Since this was a total mistake I am trying not to beat myself up over it. Its not like I was craving it and totally went wild, in fact I really havent been at all. Technically we all get one "open" meal a week. It was just a you messed up after a week moment, how are you going to last? But I will! I digress...
