|Bacon cupcakes: Last year’s Birthday fare|
Whee! I am now on Day Seven of Induction! And I am seriously excited because I can have a Birthday dessert today that is induction friendly! I made them and they’re in the fridge now. I am going to share these recipes and pictures with you very soon.
Thank you so much for your well wishes and your Birthday wishes. I am starting to definitely feel human again–as opposed to, say, a venus fly trap. Those are super cool, but I tend to kill them even when I feed them grass fed beef. That and it’s hard to be friends with a plant that would digest you if it had the chance.
What has this first week taught me?
That I can be sick, addicted and positively miserable and survive. And I can even be sick on my Birthday (of all days), and it is no excuse for going off plan.
What can you do even if you’re a little bit blargy on your special day? Make an event of the day anyway. This is about celebration and loved ones and not about food. Get one of those little tingaling bells and have people service you and bring you things. Like bacon. And presents. And more bacon. And bacon. Ask them to rub that funny little spot on your foot. If you really want to be funny, you might write something there like, “Help me! Some weirdo is touching my foot!”
It’s as fun as an event as you want to make it, and I have decided I am always going to make the best of it. Good or bad, dressed like Iman and serving me tea or clad in sparkly leg warmers and doing the Cabbage Patch on my stomach, it’s still mine, right? The choice is yours, too.
Make it your best one yet,
Your Lighter Side
PS. Tomorrow is my first official weigh-in for one week of induction.
