Cake for Breakfast!

Friday, September 20, 2013

Yup, you read that correctly, I just had cake for breakfast! We celebrated our CEO's birthday this morning, and since I hadn't had my breakfast yet, I had a piece of cake!

Cake for breakfast? It has eggs, wheat, milk...all the important food groups! HA! Seriously though, I realize it's not a healthy breakfast. But in the past, I would have eaten my normal breakfast, had the cake for "Dessert", gone out for a fattening lunch with the girls, and then ordered take-out for dinner. (It's Friday, after all!) Oh, and exercise wouldn't even be in the equation.

What's different?

I skipped my breakfast, and had the cake instead. I logged the calories, and am planning a healthy lunch. I worked out 4 out 5 days this week, with more walking planned for the weekend. Dinner may still be take-out, but now I pick lighter options, fill up on the soup and leave the rest for my husband to take for lunch during the week.

I'm planning to eat Funnel Cake this weekend at the fair. Of course, I split it with my family, and we'll be doing a TON of walking!

So yes, I had cake for breakfast! But I'm still on track and making those ever so important lifestyle changes! I'm doing this! I'm REALLY doing this!

    You are doing great! You have learned a lot and are following through, and because of that you will succeed. Once in a while, if we plan accordingly, we can have the "not so healthy" food - in moderation. Nice job!

    Good for you. I believe you can have anything you want. Moderation is the key. The most important item I received from your blog is to be mindful of what you eat, eat what you like, but get back on track and remain within you caloric intake for the day.

    That is what is so awesome about this program! You can totally do stuff like that, plan for it, and not get off track because of it. And THAT is what makes it something that should be easy to stick with forever. I have high hopes of never gaining everything back again (like always has happened in the past!) emoticon
