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!
