Birthday recap

I really need to be more dedicated to this blog. One of the reasons why I started this was for the opportunity to write more. With school only about a month away, I really need to start writing or I'm going to feel like the dumbest person in the office.

That being said, this is going to be a void of all structure post. Hence, it's probably just going to be a list to catch myself up!

At weigh-in last week, I lost 2.4 lbs! The first thing I said was "I was so close" and the sweet old lady receptionist just shook her head and said "yup". EFF! I needed .4 more lbs to reach 190 and my 15 lbs mark. Damn, I wanted that sticker for my birthday but I was pleased with how I had done.

So it would seem as though I will hit it forsure at this week's weigh-in..umm, WRONG! Damn all that cake/cupcakes!

I'm kinda knows as little miss baker! It's a love that got passed down from my father ( when I turned 14, I got a 14 layer cake. yeah, it runs deep) but since early high school, I have always been the girl to make cupcakes for every birthday or any special occasion. Apparently, my friends/family decided to return the gesture this year.

After making 72 cupcakes myself on Thursday (for my bball team and the boys I watch play every week), my 2 bests made me a bunch of cupcakes on Friday. By Sunday (my actual birthday) some of those cupcakes were still laying around when my niece made her first cake ever, for me. I really appreciated it, but luckily I didn't eat very much of it because I shared it with everyone else at Bible Study. Also at Bible Study, I was given this...
and it was SOOOOO GOOOOD!!! Isn't it adorable?

Overall, my birthay looked like this...
Cake!+ lots of non WW food+ lots of basketball+ good friends+ chill times+ no exercise= good 20th.

I actually forgot it was birthday for most of the day, but that is kinda the way I wanted it this year.

This is a horrible post, sorry about that. I said I would include progress pics but I think I'll just make a whole other post for that. Wish me luck at Weigh in. I'm expecting a gain but I'm mentally prepared for it this time.

Grace and Peace y'all!
