Around 11:00 we packed the kids up, and headed out to Matt's parent's house to drop the kids off so we could go out to eat and then to the Temple. Matt chose a Chinese place that his family is partial to called JPs over by where his parents live. Since today was Matt's birthday I wasn't exactly worried about what I was eating. I ordered the Moo Goo Gai Pan, which is a little better than getting something fried (but it still came with an egg roll and a crab cheese wonton which I ate so I am sure there were plenty of calories in those to make up for it).
After lunch Matt and I went to the Temple
After the temple we went back to Matt's parent's house and played with the girls in the pool. I wasn't sure about letting them in the pool since they are both sick with colds, but the water was warm and they both wanted to go so badly. I just hope they don't get any sicker because of it. I need to get a new swim suit since the only one I own is from my pregnancy and it is literally falling off. It was falling off while I was walking around in the pool with Chloe!
After pool time is when I really did the most damage to my diet. I knew it was coming but I still feel I could have eaten better. We had mashed potatoes, with BBQ beef and some asparagus for dinner and I ate way too much beef and potatoes. I should have put more asparagus on my plate and eaten half the potatoes and beef I did. But the real damage didn't come until dessert! Thunder Thigh cake, so called because it gives you thunder thighs if you eat it! (I am sure I can blame at least 10 pounds of my weight on this cake). It's a German Chocolate cake baked and then you poke holes in it with the back of a spatula, pour a can of sweetened condensed milk on top and then half to 3/4 a bottle Hershey's chocolate syrup on it. Then put Cool Whip on the top and sprinkle crushed Heath bars on top of that. Matt's family calls it "the other woman"
I surprised Matt by bringing the gifts I bought for him to his parents house. He was very surprised and excited to be opening them :) Here is a picture of his main gift we got him:
It's a shadow box that says Dad on it and I got the plaque engraved to say "Love, Lily and Chloe 2014"

So today I am planning on eating light. I have been weighing in at 148.8 all week and I would like to stay that for the weigh in tomorrow. I am going to start a new challenge for myself and see how many days I can go without eating sugar (translation: desserts and candy). Hopefully I can make it through today and today will be day 1.
