I am 49 Years Old!

This week I celebrate my 49th birthday! I can’t believe it! This is the LAST year in my 40’s and you’d think I’d be depressed or sad. Nope, I’m looking forward to 50!

I remember being very sad when I hit 40. But back then, I was unhealthy, out of shape, and didn’t eat right.

I’m now eating healthier than I’ve ever ate in my whole life, and my weight is about the same (maybe even lower) than it was in my 20’s! I feel wonderful! Who could ask for a better 49th year than that!?

I’m 49 and life is good!

Birthday Dinner

Well tomorrow is my 47th birthday. sigh. I have decided not to get too depressed about it. I figure that I have 3 more years until I am 50 and if I can get healthy and reach my goals by then, well I will have nothing to be upset about!

But I am giving into temptations tonight. I ordered the Meat Lovers Pasta (sausage, pepperoni, bacon with marinara sauce & pasta) at a local Italian restaurant, that comes with a salad and chocolate cake for dessert. Since I won’t be getting a birthday cake (I told my husband NO) I figure that I am owed at least one cheat every once in awhile, and tonight is it!

I did good all day today, and I have over 800 calories left tonight. I am sure I will be going over, but it’s fine! I can’t deprive myself all the time, right? Yeah, keep talking yourself into it! LOL

ETA: OMG, it was fantastic. I was purring with the first bite of pasta. It was salty, fatty and delicious. OMG. I was full halfway through my meal, but I couldn’t stop myself from eating more. BAAAAD. It was just so tasty, I just wanted to keep eating, and I did. I finished almost all of it, and ended up throwing the rest out. I knew if I didn’t I would end up eating it tomorrow.

Am I disappointed in myself? Sort of. I feel heavy, bloated and full right now, but I can’t do anything about it. I just have to move on and know that there are going to be days like this. It’s not the end of the world, and I will be back on track tomorrow!

Hmm, now what to do about the chocolate cake dessert. oooh noooo!
