45, or Halfway to 90
Happy Birthday to me! My parents, husband, younger son and I went to Carinos tonight to celebrate...I planned this in advance and only had 2 shakes earlier in the day. Had a house salad with no dressing or croutons...squeezed some lemon juice over it and sprinkled it with pepper and it was good. Split the Rosemary Lemon Chicken (which is listed as low-fat on the menu) with my mom...had half the chicken, a decent amount of the Italian green beans, and a tiny bit of the angel hair pasta with garlic, tomatoes and spinach. It was so good! And I was satisfied! Ordered the chocolate cake for dessert (my favorite) and after I blew out the candles (!) I had one lovely, chocolate-y, super delicious bite. So yay me - I had a special meal and didn't blow the diet! It can be done!!!
