Long day, yesterday! Andrew got sick at school and I had to bring him home and then race back to work. After work, we had a staff meeting/training, and then I just stayed at school until the ROTC meeting yesterday evening. Got home around 7:00, ate half a Subway veggie burger, watched American Idol, and then scrounged around the medicine cabinet until I found an Advil PM and hit the bed. I slept like a newborn! No aches or pains this morning. Maybe another birthday is just what I needed.

Weight is down 3 pounds this morning from when I totally freaked out Monday morning.  Even so, I’m making Mr. Scale beg for mercy at 180.5.  That’s bad enough but imagine Monday morning when I stepped on him and saw 183.5!!!  Still feeling gently motivated and doing what I can.  I’ve passed the word…absolutely NO birthday cakes around here!

8:00 a.m. – So much for my resolve…got to work and there’s a gorgeous vase of flowers on my desk from Phyllissann, a strawberry shortcake birthday cake from ? and HOMEMADE carrot cake from Phyllissann.  Okay…one piece… Really, how can you not eat at least one piece when someone makes it especially for your birthday?

1:00 – Okay, I skipped my yogurt for breakfast and had strawberry shortcake with real whipped cream.  Then I skipped my Lean Cuisine and had lucious carrot cake with cream cheese frosting.  I think it all comes out about the same….

It’s your birthday, girl. Live it up. Just eat cake all day and nothing else. 1500 calories of cake. That’ll work, right? HAP-HAP-HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

Happy Birthday Patty. Sorry I’m so late to this! Our birthdays are just a few days apart – mine was on the 11th! Way to go on the weightloss – unfortunately, I know where your lost weight went… it has a new home here on my ass!
