Birthday week: birthday + surrounding weekdays + weekends bracketing weekdays.
Birthday week weight gain so far: 3.5 pounds in 5 days.
Days remaining in birthday week: 4.
Projected weight gain for birthday week: STOP THIS CAR RIGHT NOW.
I've had enough of birthday week. I've had too much sugar and I feel cruddy. I want to keep on indulging myself, but not with food, especially not desserts.
I have one more heavy meal planned--a spaghetti dish that I haven't made in at least 5 years, and that's it. The rest of my birthday week indulgences will be things like going apple picking (hooray!) and buying giant silver hoop earrings.
Food is not the only way to celebrate.
