This is going to be a short post today my darlings. Today I walked, i worked, and I am leaving my desk early because today is also my BabyDoll’s birthday.
We have a couple of fun things planned and at his request I am making fudgy brownies as his birthday cake and Beef Stroganoff for tonight’s dinner. It will have the homemade egg noodles. And boatloads of sour cream and butter. There is no getting around this. It is not a light meal and even if it is made light, it would not be my babydoll’s requested birthday dinner.
As the last time I made this was last January, I can’t say it is something I make often. So it is his birthday, I will try to keep the portion size I consume low but for tonight it is forget the calories. Or at least don’t mention them.
I will probably regret it when I step on the scale in the morning for my weekly weigh in. Pata and mounds of dairy do not lend themselves to a happy morning weigh in, but I will survive it.
And on the plus side, his birthday is the last of the birthdays I will celebrate until June. There are a couple of Jan 15th birthdays. For some reason January 15th was a popular day to be born in my family. We have five actually born on that day. However, the celebrations will be video based and therefore less caloric than traditional family gatherings. So tonight’s big meal is the last of the indulgences until Easter. I can live with that, even if I complain about the scale in the morning.
I may try to get an extra walk in, but for now, I have pasta to make. I’ll see you bright and early to see what my holiday indulgences did to the scale. I know I gained, there is no getting around that. There was too much food and too little exercise.But I am confident that whatever I put on, I can take right back off again as I continue on my weight loss journey.
