Bfast: bulletproof coffee (half caff with 3T butter, 1T MCT)
Lunch: leftover stir fry, bleh! Probably some other stuff
Dinner: bleu cheese burger w/o bun (ok, I ate part), sweet potato fries, diet coke
Last night we were all snuggled up in bed and el Hubbo said, "So, your swimming class starts tomorrow?" OH SHIT, I thought it was Monday. So I had to get up and get all my crap together so I didn't have to panic in the morning. Class involved 45 minutes of shivering on the bleachers why the instructor prattled on and about 15 minutes of swimming. Why do I feel like I've written this all before, did I accidentally post this in someone else's log? There's one kid who looks like he's never swum before, but everyone else seems pretty comfortable. We swam about 200 yards altogether and I'm super-inefficient so it was a good workout
We had dinner at the pub, where we went to see "Puss in Boots". I desperately want to finish the Halloween costume I started for the Bebeh. We also saw "Apollo 18" the other day so I should finish Cattus' costume too... Right, FOOD. They used to have a good steak salad there, but last time the meat was nearly raw and it's so dark it's really a pain to eat anything that requires a knife and fork. Plus, salad tends to have slimy bits in it. Even if I can't taste them, just knowing that they lurk on my plate is enough to turn my stomach, so I had a burger. I immediately removed the bun and placed it on the table to contaminate it with greasy rag germs and the cooties from whoever sat there from the early show. I made the mistake of placing one half on the other, so I ended up eating part of it. They have these chewy crispy homemade pretzel buns [hangs head]. I did not finish all the fries. Still, I claim VICTORY!
Happy birthday, to me!
Today I am 43 [hangs head]
Bfast: bulletproof coffee (all decaf this time)
Lunch: swiss cheese, moose pate, beets
Dinner: duck, brocco/cauli/carrot sautee, salad
Dessert: ice cream
I didn't really do anything today except not work out and play more video games than usual. But we did go out to dinner. I usually get the mini rack of lamb appetizer, but decided to try duck this time. The skin was lovely and crisp, but otherwise it didn't have that nice gamey duck flavor I was hoping for. I wish someone would take me duck hunting... Anyway, I asked for extra veggies in place of the potatoes that usually come with it.
On this historic day I actually exercised self control! The restaurant serves tiny slices of fresh baguette before dinner. They are tiny slices and it's very tempting to tell yourself "just one", but I just looked away and thought about something else and then I'd forget they were there. but then I'd glance over and the temptation would start again. Finally I moved the plate over to the Hub's side of the table and forgot about it altogether.
Normally, I'd use a birthday as an excuse to go hog-wild, but the depressive episode brought on by the sugar from too many dried cherries and the bloating brought on by the Weekend of Destruction reminded me that what I really want for my birthday is not bloating, depression and fatness, but a new body. If I were more consistently good, then sure, a bday is a great excuse to relax a little and indulge in some forbidden foods. But I do that enough as it is.
That being said, there will be a rather epic cake for dessert when we go see my parents. I know because I'm baking it! I never get to bake anymore so that's the real treat. And the cake should be tasty, i won't go overboard.
