So I’ve been faithfully logging my food intake for well over a month now, and I decided to take today off to more fully relax and enjoy an all-day family party. I grazed all day and ate a lot of silly party food…hummus and veggies; tortilla chips, fruit salad, tofurky sausages, pasta salad, a small piece of the cheese lasagna my aunt brought, beer, cake, brownies, blondies, and then more cake. The cake and the lasagna were way, way off plan with the cheese and real buttercream icing, but I’ll survive. The company was more important that the food plan, and I had a wonderful time hanging out with my extended family. I may pay for the dairy indulgences during tomorrow’s run, but that’s ok. I would rather relax and enjoy the party than stress about every bite that goes into my mouth.
And it was some damn fine cake.
