Birthday - easy to be bad, hard to be good
Tuesday, April 05, 2011
My 35th birthday was last week, which is amazing to me, since I feel like I'm 22 still (and I am probably thinner now than when I actually was). I decided that I would take the day off from dieting for my birthday. Well, my fiance organized a big group dinner the night prior to my birthday, where I just decided "I'll start now" he ordered me an ice cream cake out of cookie dough ice cream and I just ate and ate. I sort of tracked, meaning I estimated using random foods, and it was safely a 2300 calorie day. Then on my birthday, I ate half a cupcake someone had given me the night before for breakfast, salad WITH dressing and sweet potato fries, and some cake for lunch and then proceeded to go out to a fancy schmancy dinner which could not have had less than 1000 calories, so here we go, another 2300+ day. So I decided that I would then go back to my regular diet, but we went to this wine tasting event on Saturday where we went from vineyard to vineyard and each had food pairings - I must have eaten about 1200 calories right then. And of course our friends ordered Thai, my favorite, for dinner so there we go - another 1800 calorie day.
Three terrible days in one week, including two with no workout, is the worst I've been for a long time. I don't want to start my 35th year (and wedding year) on a bad path so I'm back on it... man it is easy to be bad and hard to be good!
