WOW yesterday was my birthday and I did NOT want to blow my diet for even one day! If I'm going to live a healthy lifestyle then to me that means EVERY day. If I take a day off for MY birthday then next week is my son's birthday so I would use that excuse to take that day off too. And then on and one. SO....instead of going out for Mexican food like we normally would have done, we stayed in and my bf made Mexican food for the 7 of us! Everyone got to eat their favorites and since he made the taco meat with extra lean meat I had a taco salad with just a bit of meat, a touch of 2% cheese and used home made pico de Gallo for my dressing. Also added a tbs of fat free sour cream. It was delish! Everyone else pigged out on fajitas, quisadillas, enchilladas and tacos, and chips and salsa. I also had some baked tostitos with some of the pico on them. Everyone thought it was better than going out and cheaper too! No one could even tell I was on a diet as they were too busy pigging out!
My family got me water exercise equipment for my pool time and new sneakers for my walking!
My son and his wife got me a Macy's gift card to buy new clothes when I am ready!
I am so blessed to have people that care about me so much that I will NOT LET THEM DOWN! I will also not let myself down!
All in all I stayed under my calories for the day and actually got in most of my exercise that I normally would do. Only thing lacking was the dog walking as I was exhausted by the time we got cleaned up and sat down. Still managed to burn 800 calories or so earlier in the day!
Have a great Saturday everyone and remember:
FAILURE IS NOT AN OPTION!!
