Boy, it's been a long weekend. A full and good weekend filled with parties and time with family, but God, am I exhausted. And yeah...Valentine's Day and parties for Aubrey do not mean eating well. Lots of dessert. Oh, lots of dessert. T and I had our Buca di Beppo, which was heavenly though bad for us. Chicken Parmesan, pasta, tiriamisu, Chianti. And then homemade birthday cake for Aubrey on Friday. And then her birthday party on Saturday, which meant more cake and then pizza for dinner because we were too exhausted to even consider cooking. I think I ate more dessert this past weekend than I have in a month or two. It tasted pretty damn good, though.
I did manage to exercise in the midst of my gluttony, but this week I would definitely like to get back on track. Sure, I didn't gain all of the weight back by any means, but it's weird...now that I have lost some weight, when I eat a lot I really feel it. I feel super stuffed, and it's really uncomfortable. And the same goes for eating badly. I just feel....icky. But damn, that cake was good. And the tiramisu? Ah-mazing. But don't think I didn't feel the effects of it later.
So I'm going to try my best to work out each day this week and I'm definitely going to get back to eating low carb, low fat this week. As much I as I love my sweets and definitely enjoyed them this weekend, I'm just going to have to resist!
