We rarely go out to eat for dinner, as my honey loves to cook and always wants to eat healthy. (Curse those studies that have shown that eating home cooked meals is healthier than eating out!) But eating out at lunch is fun, more relaxed, not to mention cheaper. I'm convinced that a simple change of place can give you a change of pace.
Plus, it's a six mile bike ride to get there, which gets me out and about and takes care of my aerobic exercise for the day.
We usually walk to the restaurants, so we get a good dose of Vitamin D, and if it works, we eat outside to enjoy the fall weather while it's here.
It's a good goal, and it's here to stay for the rest of the year.
