Updates, Birthday Fun, and Recent Eats (Pictures!)

Updates:

All right, so I think I am back on track. My weight at home is showing 224 morning weight up to 226-227 evening weight now. I also went shopping in my closet and found my old(er) jeans fit, and a pair of capris I haven’t been able to wear in a long time (unfortunately it’s now fall and darn cold, so those aren’t much good to me).

My Birthday!

Yesterday was my 25th birthday, and while I had some emotional moments, it was wonderful. My husband had little pity for my moping over my 25th milestone, as he is 30+. However, my most awesome husband got the wife of a friend of his to make me a homemade chocolate cake with … A PENGUIN ON IT! I’ve collected penguins for years, and yet in all of our 7+ years together, he never thought to get a penguin cake. LOL

For dinner he asked if we could have, ‘fat food’ (a joke, of course) so I had nachos with cheese, green pepper, and green onion and salsa, and he had loaded nachos with pepperoni, etc. Of course, making them yourself at home and controlling the cheese and number of chips REALLY helps keep calories in check at the very least. I managed to keep a nice big plate of nachos surprisingly close to my 500 calorie mark for dinner. I DID however, forget to take a picture. Rest assured, they looked delicious, though had way less cheese than I would have put on 2 months ago. Even still, I never was one for too much cheese on nachos because it makes them too greasy and soggy. My husband, however, ahs a different theory on nachos. *laughs*

My beautiful birthday cake.... oh so sinfully delicious. Worth every calorie, I swear!

Light Caesar Salad, Grilled Cheese and Tomato Soup. With a bit of care, this was a surprisingly low calorie dinner. Well under the 500 mark.

Not my lowest calorie meal, but I was lazy. A spring roll, and pita pizza. Portion controlled though.

    Holy YUM! It all looks great! Hope you had a great birthday! You and your cake look delicious! πŸ™‚

  2. Wonderful pic of you and the cake! That’s so cute with the penguin πŸ™‚ Funny, at-home nachos is one of the first foods I choose when I decide on a “fat food” for a special occasions. It’s what I made Chris for his birthday this year (his side loaded with twice the cheese of course πŸ˜› )

    Happy belated b-day!
