Day 19 friends and cake

Saturday, December 20, 2014

last night turned into another no snack night, probably because Larry surprised me with a birthday dinner, and had invited some friends over, so by the time they left it was late, and we just went to bed! I was not happy when I got home from my massage, and found out he was having this surprise dinner, the house was a mess, I wasn't prepared for company, and after a week of work and a relaxing massage, all I really wanted was to curl up on the couch in my pj's and relax. But they were coming, so I tidied up what I could, put on some jazzy Christmas music (the Vince Guaraldi trio Pandora station) and decided to make the best of it. Well, as it turns out, it was a delightful evening! Larry made a delicious, simple meal of rice, broccoli and grilled tuna, we enjoyed some good red wine, and after dinner there was cake! I have to confess, I was quite miffed on my birthday that there wasn't cake....and even though I could have treated myself, it didn't happen, but I was so happy that Larry actually did go out and get a nice chocolate cake decorated with raspberries, because he knows that's what I like...well it put me in a good mood!

And I sent our friends off with some of the cake and some plastic wine glasses we had sitting on a shelf we weren't going to use! Got rid of more stuff we don't need to someone who did need it! emoticon They are setting up an apartment as a vacation rental, so they were needing to furnish it, and those glasses fit the bill!

And this morning for the first time in about a week, I didn't groan when I got on that darned scale! It was actually down to a more reasonable level. I'm not taking that to mean I should eat cake more often, but I hope it's a sign that things are finally going the way I think they should with my current regimen. In any case, I'm not giving up on the plan!
