Hey Kids!!

I have about 15 minutes to blog at you, so I’ma do this fast. 🙂

I had my goal of .2 pounds in my mind when I went to my Weight Watchers weigh in on Saturday morning, and I’m happy to report that I had a loss of 3.4 pounds! I was really happy with that. My current weight is 193.6. Not a bad start if I do say so myself!

Okay, let’s talk about cake. My son’s birthday party was also on Saturday and I had arranged for my neighbor to bake a special cake for my son (my neighbors have started decorating cakes as a hobby and I wanted to support them), so when they brought it over Saturday afternoon, I was surprised at how HUGE this thing was. Seriously this cake could probably feed 40 people – we had 6 kids over for the party. Even though I gave the kids huge slices (most of which went uneaten), there was still a ton of cake leftover.

[Let me interrupt with an important side story here: my husband has a cold with a nasty dry cough and congestion. He’s miserable, but so am I since he COUGHS AND SNORES all night. This has been going on for 3 nights (I have the option of sleeping on the couch, but I don’t sleep well there either) so I was super tired on Sunday (yesterday).]

Being tired is a big trigger for me, so when you couple being tired and cranky with lots of leftover birthday cake…well let’s just say the cake was a problem for me yesterday. I got busted several times trying to sneak a bite here and there and finally decided it was ridiculous and that I was over it. It wasn’t making me any less tired, so I finally went and took a short nap and then I was (mostly) fine. But I struggled with that cake most of the day, and I really think that if I hadn’t been so freaking tired, I would have been able to keep my guard up a little better. But what’s done is done, and tonight I’m going to cut off a few small pieces for the kids and then freeze the rest (after I cut the kids’ pieces, we’ll still have half a cake left). I can pull it out for the next big family gathering and let everyone else enjoy it.

So that was my weekend – a good weigh in, then a fight to the death with cake. I’m back on track today and bound and determine to make the rest of the week a good one.

Over and out,
