Hi Everyone! I know I didn’t blog yesterday and I apologize. It has been extremely busy, I really haven’t had very many minutes to spare during work and after. So, it’s been awhile since we’ve spoken. I guess this blog will be mostly to update you on my weekend and such. I posted some pictures below of the concert and my birthday cake.
As you can see, the concert was HOT but it was SO much fun! I love Lady Antebellum and Tim McGraw was really awesome too. I used to love listening to him when I was a kid so it was great. It was a really long day because we drove to and from Atlanta in one day but it was SO worth it. The cake was red velvet and it was VERY yummy! I can’t thank my friends and family enough for my awesome birthday. Everyone was so sweet to me with dinners, cakes and gifts and I had a great time. I am so undeserving of a whole birthday week but that’s pretty much what I got. I got much needed money and then some fun gift cards...it was great! It almost made me forget that I am now closer to 30 than 20...almost.
As I predicted, the past couple of days have been pretty tough. I have a serious case of diet rage going on. No meal I’ve had has seemed like enough food and I have been thinking about my next meal even more than usual. I have to be strong though because I weighed and I pretty much put on 5 pounds last week. It’s SO unfair...4 days of eating food I want and I gain 5 pounds that will take me at LEAST 2-3 weeks to recover from. That doesn’t even make any good sense. Oh well...I have stuck to it so far...even if I have only been back on the wagon for a day and a half. Plus, it’s an eye opener of how fast it can be put back on and I don’t want to be headed in that direction. In the spirit of making sure I get back in line, I DID cook yesterday. I made a turkey sausage, broccoli, garlic, Italian bread & cheese casserole. It was very good...I really enjoyed it but it was 5 points PER serving and one serving was a pretty tiny square. Naturally, I ate more than one serving but I did count it. I think when I have it for leftovers, I will cook up some green beans to go with it to make it more complete. I posted a picture below, not that you can see much but I was proud. I already have my recipe for next week and I will report back on that. Just email me or comment if you guys ever want any of the recipes! Enjoy your night! I will be back tomorrow!
