For the past 3 week ends (since Valentine's day!) I've been eating either a slice of birthday cake (which I've frozen from Collin's Birthday Cake *BTW... my mother in law makes THE BEST birthday cake!) or a single Crave cupcake (which I got from Collin for Valentine's Day! Just what I wanted/ er... NEEDED, right?)
Everything was going great, until this past weekend!
We took a road trip to Edmonton to attend my BFF's son's Birthday party! (He turned ONE years old... I felt FLATTERED that she even thought of me to send me an invitation!) And I figured "I've been indulging in cake for the past 2 weekends, how will this be any different?"
"How?" I ask... Well, when there are 7 kids under 5 years old running around and there are no set meal times... a girl has got to eat SOMETHING! My BFF decided to make her son his cake... OMG, it was divine! (and I'm a birthday cake connoisseur! LOL) So I ate 2 peices!
But it was SOOO GOOD! There were even sugar cookies surrounding the cake to make it look like a crown! Check it out!
SOOOO.... needless to say, I ended up going way overboard on the food that day... and then the next day, I ate a half a tub of sour dinosaurs candies!
WTF? you may ask! ... well, that day we went to visit Collin's ailing father. And like a dummy, I had not packed any meals to take with me! I get pretty hungry every 2 or 3 hours and by lunch time, I was FAMISHED! Those dinosaurs didn't stand a chance with me and my hunger, but luckily Collin saw what I was doing and asked me to go get some lunch! I went and got a Wendy's taco salad. (I love them without the sour cream or dressing... just chili, cheese, a few taco chips and lettuce. YUM!)
NUMBERS GEEK ALERT:
here's the plot of my weight over the past 3 months... as you can see, the last week has thrown me off track slightly (circled in cyan) even though I had a pretty decent weighin today. (134.4)
My wedding goal weight (I'm loosely using this number as my "carrot" so to speak) is 132.
Moral of this story...
NO MORE CAKE FOR ME UNTIL MY WEDDING CAKE!!!
