Calories don’t count on your birthday. ..I’m sure you may have heard this before, or wished it were true? As far as I’m concerned it is a day you should do whatever it is that will make you happy – and if that is smashing back cake, or eating out for breakfast, lunch & dinner then I think you should. If it is sticking to current goals and making mindful choices that will put a smile on your dial, then please, continue on…
I had a delightful breakfast with Mum, Dad & my partner at the “Naked Fig” in Swanbourne, sharing Grizzly bear pancakes and eggs on fire – the old faithfuls! I had a lot of running around to do on my birthday (including choosing a colour scheme and wool for a knitted blanket I was having made as a birthday present to myself – something only a 31 year old would be doing on their birthday?? ha ha) so lunch was going to be leftovers from dinner last night.
I had a friends engagement party that night and there was bound to be plenty of delicious finger foods which is why I had scheduled a “strike day” for today.
Dietary record for day 6:
