Day 67. Birthday Dinner. Morning Run.

Yesterday was my brother-in-laws 40ish-something birthday. And 19 people showed up to celebrate — all immediate family; sisters, brothers, kids, parents. And that wasn’t even all of us. I see a reality show in the works here!

So with birthdays, comes eating. And with all birthday celebrations, we usually choose one of the family favorites … last night’s selection was Roma’s Pizzeria. So what to do — it would be rude not to eat at least 5 slices, right? It is equivalent to not slurping your ramen soup in Japan. It’s insulting to the host. So, I didn’t want to be rude.

The good news is that yesterday’s weight was 170.5 and this morning’s weight, drumroll please … 5 slices of wonderfully delicious veggie and cheese pizza and nearly 1500 calories just for dinner later, I gained a whopping 0.5 pounds. Why?

Morning weight 171

Life lesson #67 – Plan your day for the day. If you know you’re going to enjoy a family feast, that is just one meal. You have plenty of opportunities before that to make choices that do not throw you off track and off goal.
