Oh yes, that's right a diet AND a birthday party. That sounds brilliant to me too.
I am dieting because my wedding dress is a tad tight. And by a tad tight I mean it doesn't want to zip. Of course this is without the corset that I will be wearing but still. It is a problem. A BIG problem. And so I'm dieting and excercising. And so, here's my day's calorie total (because you might care)........1,115
That means, I get a snack tonight. Heck yeah. I just have to decide between a pudding cup, popcorn or being naughty and having an easter cake. Hmmmm.
So, as shown by todays food (that includes 3 meals, I promise) I can enjoy a birthday party while dieting.
But I have to decide what I want to make for her birthday cake. She is very into spelling and writing and coloring so I'm thinking about making a white cake with white frosting that I do a tye dye affect to (put drops of food coloring on the frosting, use a toothpick to swirl). But I don't know for sure. Sigh.
And packing. Oh joy of joys I know. But I want to get some stuff moved over to Jaimes this weekend and I want to get most of the toys and clothes packed and I would love to be down to what I need to survive for a few weeks.
Oh and let me show you what my next 2 months look like.
