Humiliation Diet Update: It’s my Birthday

It’s my Birthday. Do we really have to do this?

Technically my birthday is tomorrow.

But still. Do we really have to do this?

I gave the side eye to my scale this morning and it told me:

And you know what? I believe it.

I will say that I have been working out twice a day this week. Either Jillian Michaels or a portion of Tracy Anderson or a walk with Gracie in the morning, and then I put in some hardcore time at the gym in the afternoon. I sound like such a meathead. But it’s true.

I have been drinking less. Ish. And I haven’t had any cake and will not even though it is my birthday.

But really all I want for my birthday is to not do this today.

And as the ruler of this blog, I am granting that birthday wish.

See you next week!

    Hi! I’m saying enjoy your birthday! Mine was yesterday and being 9 months pregger and sudden retaining enough water to solve CA’s drought issue, I was told to cut back the sodium. Umm, last night that so didn’t happen and I still have cankles today. I figure lots of water and rest, not to mention I don’t see the man for another 6 days. So you don’t have to visit Mr. Scale for 6 more days enjoy your b-day and just put in a bit a more burn at the gym the following few days after. :)

    Happy Birthday, Bailey! I hope you have a positively fabulous birthday weekend and that all your birthday wishes come true. Treat yourself a little this weekend, playing catch up at the gym is worth it, if ONLY on your birthday.

    Happy, Happy Birthday! Birthdays are special and personal, so for that reason, you can do anything you want for your birthday. Enjoy and please don’t be so hard on yourself. You are special in your own right, Gracie told me so!

    Your birthday is four days after Valentine’s Day? That explains SO MUCH about your pink/red addiction! Happy Happy :)
