In case you haven’t heard, Saturday is my birthday. I’m going to be the awesome age of 25! Some people get bummed about getting older, I get excited. To me it’s another year of life I lived. I’ve already decided that my 25th year will be my best year yet. I feel like amazing things are going to happen. )
Well, I’ve declared it my birthday week this week.
Yes, I can do that.
Since declaring it my birthday week I have for some reason decided that I could throw healthy eating out the window. Well I did yesterday at least.
Breakfast went well, but then my brother called to go get lunch. This never happens, so I jumped at the opportunity. I could have ordered something more healthy, but I didn’t. I had a yummy turkey ruben sandwich and french fries.
Then there was cake in the fridge. Tuesday was my sister’s last day at Cold Stone and the day my birthday present from her arrived. So we declared it a special day. We got a cake that said: Happy Last Day and Brooke’s Bday Present Day. Well, I told myself I’d just have the slice of cake on Tuesday and wouldn’t touch it again.
Ya…didn’t happen. I ended up having a piece around 5. Not gonna lie, it was amazingly delicious.
I went to a Mary Kay party and was pampered. Came home and made myself a taco salad. A rather healthy choice for me.
Then there was the Cold Stone cupcake. My sis brought them home on her last day because they were just going to throw them out.
So I had one. Again….amazingly delicious.
Not a horrible day, but it’s only the first of a few……
Tonight I’m going out to dinner to meet the B-Fry’s parents. I’m going to try to make a healthy choice, but it’s a restaurant I’ve never been to and they don’t have a website. So, I’ll be going in there blind.
Sidenote: I’m extremely nervous to meet the B-Fry’s parents. I’ve never met a guy’s parents before. I hope I don’t vomit. Haha
Saturday is my actually birthday (woot) and the B-Fry has a whole evening planned. I have NO IDEA what is going down. I’ve been trying all week, but he’s offering nothing. Boo hiss. Things I do know, there will be dinner out involved and a birthday cake from Cold Stone. (Are you seeing that Cold Stone is the enemy?)
Sunday is my birthday dinner with the family. Burgers and chicken wings on the grill with fruit. Oh and ANOTHER cake. Red velvet this time, it’s my favorite.
As you can see there’s a lot of not so healthy eating in the immediate future. I was going to stress out about it. But why should I? As my blog says: I’m NOT on a diet. I’m allowed to live life and enjoy things I wouldn’t normally eat.
It’s my birthday week for gosh sakes!! )
So, I’m going to enjoy it this week because it does only happen once a year. I’m not going to feel guilty because in my opinion you should never feel guilty about eating food. I’m going to enjoy it now and kick my butt into gear on Monday.
For now I’m trying to avoid having cake for breakfast. )
