Birthdays, Burritos, Calories, Bridesmaids, and Tea!!!


YESTERDAY WAS MY 24th BIRTHDAY!!! Last year, I wrote up a whole thing on my birthday, but this year the birthday was much more relaxed. Plus, I had to work so that threw a bit of a damper on the day. Nonetheless, a lot happened and it was an all around good day.

Also, I had a burrito from Qdoba for lunch! YUM! However, I have been watching my calorie count for the last month, and intend to continue to do so so that I will look good in my bridesmaid dress that I have the wear in August. I am alloted at a very reasonable 2,005 calories per day, and I keep track of my calories using the "Lose it!" App. VERY COOL! So, I really, REALLY wanted a burrito, but I knew it would be a lot of calories. With everything on it, the burrito stands right around 1,500 calores (not including queso cheese, which is delicious. :( So, I improvised and got pinto beans instead of black (-100 calories), no cheese (-220), no guacamole (-100), and tore off about 1/3 of the tortilla (-80). It turned my burrito into a 1,000 calorie burrito and it still tasted fabulous. I had the lime cilantro rice, pinto beads, shredded beef, pico de gallo salsa, lettuce, and sour cream!

Nevertheless, I still went over my calorie count because the parents got pizza and made cheese cake for my birthday, but heck, it was my birthday :).

The bridesmaids dresses arrived yesterday as well and I got to try mine on in the correct size for the first time. The other girls were having a few troubles with their dresses, all the straps were too long, and the busts did not fit, but mine fit perfectly! YEAH!

Finally, the whole day was topped off with a good cup of tea. I've recently become obsessed with tea. I love Twining's Black Tea, particularly the Blackcurrent Breeze flavor. It has caffeine though. Recently, I discovered Mighty Leaf. I got the Herbal Infusion Variety Pack. The little packages are beautiful, like little silk pouches and all the ingredients are real leaves, citrus, flowers, etc. A really nice combo of things. I'm drinking at least 2 cups a day not and I don't even crave pop like I used too!!!

So, that was yesterday! Hoe was everyone elses' yesterdays?

  1. First of all, happy birthday (even though it is a bit belated)! 24 was a pretty crazy (but good) year for me--I hope you have lots of fun and tons of opportunities to achieve the things you want to do.

    Secondly, I LOVE the purple script theme. So pretty!

    And finally, a burrito has 1000 calories in it?!?!?! And that's WITHOUT the cheese. Yowza. Good luck with your diet!

  4. Natalie...Thank you for both the birthday wishes and for the compliment on the new layout. It really has grown on me and I am going to try and fix the side buttons today.

    I don't know if all burittos are that bad. This is a giant burrito. You don't need anything else with it and most of the time, I don't even finish it, but I ate the whole thing the other day.

    Matt...Thank you, just trying to be conscious.

    Sarah...Thank you. The dress is really nice. It's a very light teal color and very flattering.
