Yesterday was my husband's 62nd birthday. Money has been very scarce so no party, very little in the way of presents. But one thing I could afford to do was bake him a really nice cake. Dark chocolate fudge chunk cake. With cream cheese frosting and sprinkles.
Now even under ordinary circumstances I don't eat a lot of cake. But I have been eating a lot of salads, veggies and fruit lately. I figure a treat is just what I'd like. So I helped my husband eat his cake.
It was delicious!
And you know, I don't feel guilty, I'm not beating myself up over all those calories or regretting what it may have done to my weight loss efforts.
My husband's birthday only comes around once a year, and to me birthdays are a really special day. It was very enjoyable to sit with hubby and have a cup of coffee and a big slice of cake last night while he recounted what a great day he had had, all the cards he received, phone calls from son and granddaughter.
It was well worth the calories!!
