This week definitely was a bit of a challenge. How do you eat healthy at a birthday party?! Answer: you don’t eat. You spend months planning a surprise for your boyfriend’s 30th and are such a ball of nerves the day of the event that it’s all of a sudden 11pm and whoops, you forgot to eat!
I suppose there are a few cookies, an alcoholic beverage, and several forkfuls of salad that can prove that untrue. But no cake, no pizza, no meatballs, no lasagna, no ice cream, and NO CAKE. I think I did well.
I also went to Trader Joe’s early in the week and came home with the healthiest haul of groceries I had ever put in my fridge. I think my fridge was probably so confused that it spent the night Googling “are grapes poisonous? is spinach a bad word?”
We went out for breakfast the day after the party and instead of my usual pancakes or french toast (which usually resemble rafts in a syrup lake), I stuck with cottage cheese and wheat toast. I was dragged kicking and screaming to get ice cream the next night (ugh, my life is awful) and I picked a low fat frozen yogurt and ordered the smallest size.
So I’m happy with my choices this week, and while I most likely will continue to bring fruit and yogurt for snacks at work, and order smaller and healthier portions when eating out, I am most definitely not restraining from ice cream all summer long. It’s practically a food pyramid requirement from June – September.
Oh, also. I didn’t put my last blog post on Facebook this Sunday because I felt like I had already reached my self-imposed posting limit for the day with San Francisco pictures, Dan’s party pictures, and statuses (statii?).
