I wrote this post with the intention of it posting on Wednesday, but someone (me!) forgot to the “publish” button. I digress….
Today (6/8/2011): 192.9
Difference of 2.6 pounds!
Foreword: Today’s post might cause a bit of controversy, which I am OK with since I am just being real with you. I still have not been able to exercise as normal because of my foot. For the last two weeks my exercise has been limited to one 5K, 18 holes of putt, and 2 days in a row of bowling. And, I have been eating cake!
Just by looking at my blog title, before even opening the post, you should have guess that I like to eat my cake! That’s no lie! Birthday cake, cheesecake, chocolate cake, wedding cake, cupcake, and even crumb cake.
I am on this journey to lose weight and find the healthier me, but I am still a real person. I celebrate the birthdays, holidays, and other happy occasions through out the year. More often than not those occasions will have cake, probably some not so healthy food choices too. How do we get through the year while trying to be healthy and lose weight, but also have our cake too?
Moderation is going to have to be my key to success. I haven’t been terribly successfully in losing weight, but I wasn’t always eating in moderation. If you read my last post, Memorial Weekend Birthday Vacation, you saw that I certainly “enjoyed” my weekend.
(There was one more dessert from dinner out, that I also shared, but I did not get a picture of it.)
This girl can certainly eat her dessert. Going forward, I am going to have my cake and eat it too! If I can eat in moderation, and sort of plan it into my day, then why can’t I enjoy the sweeter things in life?
No matter where I am in my journey the “cakes” of life will always be there. Sometimes I will turn my back, but most of the time I am going to grab the nearest fork. I can’t envision myself never being allowed to have the cake if I want it.
My thought (and this might not be true for everyone) is that I need to learn how to circumnavigate the dessert table NOW, so in the future I will always be able to eat in moderation.
I hope you will all still love and support this cake loving girl! 🙂
