True Confessions – The Shrinking Jeans of Nancy


January 24, 2012 By Nancy

Yesterday was my husband’s 60th birthday. That is one of those milestone birthdays. It was a whole weekend extravaganza of parties and fun.

I did my best to be good and I think I did pretty well. I watched what I ate with one small exception. Saturday we went to Chili’s for lunch. I ordered the avocado burger because it sounded really good. It came on a wheat bun and everything. It tasted awesome. I thought it was the healthier of the burger choices. Boy…was I ever wrong. When I went to enter my food in My Fitness Pal that night, that little burger and her french fry companions were a whopping 1540 calories. What the hell?!?!

Yesterday morning, I had every intention of going to zumba that night. Hubby was okay with my leaving, so I was going. A half hour before zumba, some of our very best friends showed up with wine, beer and cake. I had a small piece of cake and a half glass of wine and didn’t go to zumba. You know what? I didn’t feel guilty at all. I was totally okay with not going. I had a wonderful time with our friends and zumba will still be there next week.

Sometimes, you just have to relax and let things happen for the best. 60 only comes around once and people love my hubby and wanted to celebrate with us. Who am I to say no? A little cake, a little wine and missing one night of exercise won’t kill me.

There you have it. My confessions. How about you? Anything you need to get off your chest?
