Well my mother-in-law's 90th birthday party was a big success. Everyone had a great time; especially my mother-in-law who was upset about having the party! Now I must get back on track and stop eating birthday cake on a regular basis. It all started Tuesday when we celebrated my husband's birthday. How could I not have a piece of his favorite lemon cake? Of course we didn't finish it in one day so it lingered on the kitchen counter and I couldn't resist another piece the following day. Then on to my mother-in-law's actual birthday on Friday. How could I not have a piece of MY favorite Zuppa Inglese cake which of course didn't get finished so I had a bit more on Saturday. Then there was today's celebration with her favorite from LaSalle bakery. Wouldn't it be rude of my not to have some? Well guess where the remainder of the LaSalle cake is sitting? In my refrigerator! I refuse to have another bite of cake until our next celebration (my brother-in-law celebrates in August). That is my goal until then! I'm curious to see what the scale says tomorrow morning. I have been faithfully exercising so I'm really hoping the damage isn't too bad. Wish me luck. I know I can do it!
