    Default Went a little overboard for my birthday - Oops

    Hello everyone!
    Well, yesterday was my birthday. I turned exactly one day older than the day before. I had a wonderful birthday. I got off work early and planned to lay in the sun and swim but since it was 103 degrees outside, we opted to stay inside and watch Black Panther and the ID Channel instead. I'm addicted to the ID Channel.
    I'm happy to say I got to change my ticker down another pound yesterday and down yet another pound today which makes my total loss in 8 days 6lbs. I'm just over the moon about it. I can't tell you how many times I "recommitted" only to gain weight instead of losing. No matter what I did I could not get that scale to budge anywhere but up. This time is so different. I think it's because I'm staying on this board and staying accountable.
    That said, I had an oopsie yesterday. My friend brought me a little container of cheesecake she got from a vegan restaurant. No processed carbs, no added sugars, no dairy, all vegan. It was SO rich and sweet. I was only able to eat half of it. I was full to the point of discomfort which means I totally overate but I didn't mean to. That cheesecake was just so thick and rich and by the time it all went down it sat in my belly like a rock. It took a long time for that uncomfortable feeling to go away. I totally did NOT mean to overeat. I hate the way that feels. Well, that little slice of heaven cost me a lot more than I realized. When I went to put it in MFP it had a whopping 57g of carbs!!! I had NO IDEA! I can only guess it's because of the fruit in it. That taught me a lesson about putting something in my body I'm not sure of. Just because it says vegan does not mean it's healthy for my plan. Damn!! I just hope it didn't kick me out of ketosis. I was down a pound this morning so I'm going to assume it didn't.
    I had half a rib eye steak (6oz) for dinner with a salad and homemade Atkins Flan. That Flan was pretty good! My sweet hubby made it for me because he knows how much I love flan and everyone needs a sweet treat on their birthday. I'm going to make sure to keep that recipe handy. It was SO easy to make and only has 2.5 grams of carbs and 265 calories. That's not TOO bad considering it's dessert. When I really want something sweet I can work it into my daily plan. But, because of that vegan delight, I went over by calorie allotment by 300 calories. I probably needed that though because I've only had about 800 for the past week.
    I did not workout yesterday. I took a rest day. I was supposed to get up at 5 this morning to workout but I just could not pry myself from the warmth of my sheets and hubby laying next to me. I slept until the very last minute and got ready for work in about 15 minutes. It usually takes me 45 so I was a speed demon this morning.
    I don't feel bad about yesterday at all. I had a fantastic birthday and didn't go too far off track. I lost a pound even after going over my calorie count and WAY over my carb count but I really think my body needed it. I'm still on track toward my goal and feel great about everything. No guilt at all.
    So, onward!! I've gotten to change my ticker three times already this week and I feel super fantastic even though I took a rest day yesterday and didn't workout this morning. I'm 2lbs from my first goal. I'll find a way to workout after work. And if I don't, it's not the end of the world. I can just do it tomorrow. No OCD. 2 days in a row aren't going to kill me. I'm SO looking forward to changing my goal weight to my next mini-goal. I hope to do it this week!!
    I hope everyone has a great day!!

    Happy belated birthday!
    "No OCD", that sounds great!
    "No bad feeling", even greater.
    "Onward", you totally rock!

    I learn a lot from you, thank you!
    English is not my first language anymore, so I may and do make mistakes in my spelling, or say things oddly. Please ask me, if you want any clarifications.

    Thank you for the birthday wishes. I had a great day yesterday. I got off work at 1:30 and came home to spend time with my kids and husband who also took half a day off to be with me. I got lots of hugs and kisses and presents! My husband bought me a new laptop and a Michael Kors smart watch I've been wanting for about 2 years but wouldn't buy for myself. My daughter, the future makeup artist, got me a killer Morphe eyeshadow palette. She's only 14 and does makeup like a professional. And my son got me a pair of Michael Kors shoes I've been wanting forever but wouldn't buy myself until I lost some weight. Well, I've lost some weight and who doesn't love shoes? So I FINALLY got them.
    I usually have sucky birthdays but yesterday was awesome and I really think this new journey is part of why. I've got a new commitment and a new year. When I got sleeved it was a decision I made on my 40th birthday. I decided I'd waited long enough. I had to do something to change my life but didn't know what. Then, a few months later I found out insurance covered the sleeve - finally - so that was the life change I was searching. Now, 5 years later I am recommitting on my 45th. This year will be another year of changes for a better me. I will not accept failure. I will not allow myself to feel hopeless any longer. This year I am going to take care of myself again. Yesterday was the perfect start.
