Well, Happy Birthday to me. In the past, I would have made an excuse to eat like there was no tomorrow on my birthday- because it is criminal to deny yourself a tasty treat or a tasty meal- no matter how fattening it is on your special day? Right?
I still think that you should have a tasty treat and a tasty meal that you enjoy on your birthday. However, the difference is, because my birthday this year happens to fall on a Monday- a non-cheat day, I am not going to go over 1500 calories.
If it was on a Saturday, which is my designated cheat day, then hell yes. I would indulge. And, I did have an early birthday dinner at a Chinese buffet this past Saturday. However, today, I still wanted to have a treat, so I went to Starbucks and got myself the perfect birthday treat- the Birthday Cake cake pop which is only 170 calories. How can you go wrong with that? And, it was good.
Because I have lost over 30 lbs since January, I am not going to make any excuses to indulge more than once a week (except for the week I was on vacation, but I was a lot more active than usual so I, for the most part, evened out). So, instead, I had a small indulgence today that will not cause me to go over my daily budget. It’s amazing how much my view has changed about that.
Now, onto other stuff. Because Mercury is in retrograde right now, along with five other planets, I am not going to start anything so drastic. However, there will be some changes happening soon with this blog that I want to note.
You see, the new category My Two Cents that I recently created (before the retrograde started)? This category is for the topics that I plan to write about that may be considered somewhat controversial, or maybe extremely controversial. Well, it’s called My Two Cents for a reason. And, I already have a post idea that is brewing my in my mind which I know will ruffle some people’s feathers- but I also know that the majority would agree with what I will be talking about. So, stay tuned for that!
I am also planning to start branching out as far as writing within other niches and not just within the parenting niche. I will also be focusing on my astrological studies again. So yep, changes are happening.
My birthday marks the ending of one era, and the beginning of a new one to come. Stay tuned for all of it.
