day 1895 – tiramisu mousse

the guilt of eating the mom’s tiramisu birthday cake is strong, but what’s in my stomach is already inside and can’t be changed. this cake eating was necessary to celebrate the most important woman in my world. the cake was so delicious i even had an extra half a slice. i’ll make this an exception and stay clean for the next stretch. just have to work harder to burn it all off

day 1893 – western lake

it’s always a special occasion when the best mom i know is celebrating her birthday. together, we celebrated at western lake restaurant with some chinese food. as the years pass by, the amount of time i spend with her lessens and is sporadic at times. my schedule is horrendously packed on a regular basis, but i do what i can to set aside time for family. for that reason, having everyone together like tonight is important. i’ll continue to re-evaluate my priorities to see how i can better manage everything else on my plate

day 1164 – mom’s birthday

mom’s birthday means getting the family together and usually defaults to chinese restaurant. i did not survive the dinner and cake too well. i regret touching half the food that i had; i feel heavy and slowed for drop in hockey and the scale confirms that. eating was poor today but special occasions like this is sometimes unavoidable. i will gladly get back on it and undo the damage. enjoyed celebrating the birthday of the woman who brought me to earth

day 800 – birthday mom

celebrating one of the many special days of the year, but the person i celebrate it for and with doesn’t get any more important. happy birthday to my dearest mom, who works tirelessly to make each and every one of my day as smooth as it could be. a lot of times i overlook the little expressions and actions that could go a long way to making you realize how much you mean to me. do know that i appreciate every little thing you do for me and every moment spent together is quality time i cherish. and sometimes i just fail to express how i love you so. here’s to another great year ahead and many more to come. perfect way to make it my blog’s 800th day post. i have had a lot of pleasure writing all my posts and revisiting my posts to see where i have been and where i have come

it’s a special day as we have a mini celebration for the best mom i could possibly ask for. wish my mom nothing but the best from the bottom of my heart, because no one does it better than her. another year has gone by in the blink of an eye. we are preparing to chow down on some strawberry mousse cake. so much for cutting out some junk and sweets and trying to maintain a balanced eating regime
