Weee haaa.. today's my b-day (37)

It's late and I'm feeling silly so I thought I'd post a message. The birthday announce list doesn't like me so it did not put me on the birthday list, even though I have my birthday on my profile. Hm.

NO, I'm not having any b-day cake. I have plans of having some chinese veg and rice for dinner for my birthday treat though!

Hey everybody!!

Thanks.. awww.. everyone's so nice here!! :D

My big treat today for my birthday is... I'm gonna have some chinese veggies for dinner! I've been craving that for 2 weeks now!! Gonna make my own rice to go with it because I think there might be a lot of salt in the restaurant stuff.. and I would guess a lot of extra fat too.

No, not havin any cake today, and I'm not feeling tempted. So, that's a relief in itself.

Happy Birthday to "NotTheCheat" too, she tells me it was her birthday yesterday, so a big HAPPY BIRTHDAY to you too!!! (and anyone else having a birthday this month)

Happy late birthday! Mine was Saturday...lots of July babies! I have several in my family as well, and my best friend's brother. I wonder why there's soooo many July bday's in almost every family!

I ate bad on my bday!!! Not as bad as I could have, but bad. I felt guilty at first, but after talking to my hubby (as we're eating) I didn't feel so bad. We all deserve days off to eat the way we want. Before I started eating right I would have eaten 2 big plates full of awful things, but I didn't! I ate 2 not quite filled plates (I spread it all around...hehe) and a small raspberry cake thingy and some fruit. I was full, but was smart enough to stop before I was uncomfortable.

Then the next night I was able to say no to a potluck at work! They had fried chicken, wings, rice crispy treats and all that gooood stuff. I said thanks, but no thanks y'all have lots of fun! I hope I didn't seem stuck up as I'm new there, but I did explain to a few of them that I'd eaten off my diet plan the night before, so maybe they understood!

Hope you had a great birthday!

Happy belated B-day to you too then! Wow you're right, a lot of B-days this month. My sister's birthday is 2 days before mine, so there's another one. (no, obviously we're not the same age haha)

I did 'not toooo bad' this birthday eating wise. My breakfast and lunch were my usual on plan meals, and then for dinner, I went and got myself some chicken stir fry type dish from the chinese place up the road, and made my own rice to go with it. The rice is called "almost fried rice" if anyone's interested in getting the recipe. I got it from the Body for life website, the recipe page. I made it without any fat, of course. So, i saved myself a bunch of calories there. Sunday is my every week ' 1 cheat meal' day, so to go with that, I had a mars bar, which clocks in at 260 cal and 9g of fat. My total for the day was 1900 cals which is much higher than my normal 1200-1400. Body for life's program has an 'eat what you want all day' for one day a week, but I do only 1 meal. It keeps me sane and reduces my cravings for the rest of the week like you would not believe. I feel a wee bit guilty about going up to 1900 cals but I'll get over it! :D I feel good that I made the effort to make my own rice and saved myself a ton of salt and extra fat for at least half of that meal.

Oh yeah and one more thing.. re your food mentions in the message.. mmmmmm fried chicken (in homer voice).

Thank you! You mention your sister's bday, I forgot, my brother's is an exact week before mine! HEHE. We're packed full of July's, right off hand I can think of 8 in my immediate family! I have a huge family, can ya tell? LOL. My youngest daughter's bday is the 25th, so I gotta start planning for that!

That almost fried rice sounds interesting, I'll have to look that up! I'm on a half hearted search for healthy recipes, or not so healthy recipes that I can improvise on. The Chinese restaraunt (I can never spell that word right) we went to for my bday had the best cheesy crab I've ever had, so I'm gonna try it at home with fat free cream cheese and cheddar. I hope it turns out good.

I don't really have a planned cheat day, probably because I don't count calories. I've just made some changes and started eating smaller portions and it seems to be working for me. I still sneak in chocolate (3 Muskateers) and stuff like that, just be more careful elsewhere. I guess I count calories, but not in the sense that I COUNT them...does that make sense? LOL.
