Yesterday was my 54th birthday. As usually occurs on my birthday, it rains. But yesterday’s weather will be one that for years we will be talking about. None the less I wasn’t going to let the day go by without celebrating.
I was looking forward to making my birthday cake from a recipe in the Flat Belly Diet Cookbook. I chose a rich chocolate cake with maple frosting. I was pleasantly surprised that it was very good. My family agreed that it was quite yummy. Aside from a scoop of strawberry ice cream on the side, I enjoyed a guiltless birthday celebration. Imagine that!
I have been enjoying the recipes in the cookbook, and even happier that in 3 weeks I have lost 4 pounds!!! I’m on a roll now so will try to keep it going. The running hasn’t hurt either! Tomorrow I will be running my first 10k race in over 10 years. I hope all the hard work of the past few months will get me across the finish line! Wish me luck!
