I just got home from the birthday party I had to go to today and as you can see I didn't do that bad with my eating.  I'm not going to eat dinner because its already so late but I may have a snack in alittle while.

I'm taking the night off from exercising but I was very active today at the birthday party, walking around talking to everyone, riding a horse and riding a four wheeler.  I really had a great day.


  1. Parties are one of the biggest dieting obstacles for me. Kudos for overcoming them and eating well!

  2. mmmm birthday cake... kudos for self control, I would have totally cheated

  3. I always find that pre-planning is the key, and it sounds like you did a good job with that and stuck to your plan. Good for you! It's nice when we make that switch to celebrating with people and events and nature rather than focusing on the food.

  4. Thank you iamgoingdown and 1girl1dress1year, you have no idea how much I wanted more of that birthday cake, it was so good but I forced myself to throw my plate away and distracted myself by taking more pictures.

    Hi Charlotte, yea its something I'm having to learn, my family celebrates everything with food so I have alot more of these events coming up in the next couple months.

  5. I hope you made it through that party okay. What I do is always take along a snack to eat at any family event with food. That way I am not hungry. Planning helps me. Michele

  6. Hi Michele yea the party was great and I ate better than I had planned. One more victory I can add to my list.
