Goodness, I am feeling a bit hungover this morning. Kind of amazing since I didn’t let one drop of alcohol hit my lips last night. Nope, instead I am feeling hungover from indulging a bit too much in delicious food.
Ahhhhh, I tell ya, my will power sucks at times!!!!
Last night, we went to Chris and Brandi’s house for his
21st, errr 41st birthday celebration. I made him practice some before and after shots!!
Before drinking his Texas sized bottle of Tequila:
As always, there was lots of good food served last night. Chris and Brandi have never been known for serving too little food and last night was no exception. I went in with a plan to have one, maybe two pieces of pizza and a bite of cake. Ha…..yeah right!!!!
This is just a sample of the many pizzas. There was sure to be something for everyone, a true pizza buffet!! They had combination, pepperoni, cheese, ham and pineapple, meat lovers, and an onion and mushroom. Yum!!!
My pizza choices: The works and mushroom and onion. So good!!!
I did manage to stick with two pieces of pizza but only because I had plucked a couple boxes of Milk Duds out of this bowl beforehand.
Milk Duds are my FAVORITE and I would be in big trouble if I kept a big ol’ bowl like this around me all the time. Seriously, I have no willpower when it comes to candy so I just cannot have it in the house. You can guarantee I will not buy Halloween candy until a couple days before because if I did there would be little left for the trick or treaters.
Thankfully, there was a little time between the pizza and dessert to let my stomach settle. Not that it would have mattered. I am sure I would of dug in anyway ;-).
Maddi, Chris and Brandi’s 15 year old daughter was in charge of making the cake and she did a fabulous jobs!!! Check out the three tier Oreo cake!!!
Yes, it tasted just as good as it looked!!! The chocolate cake was nice and moist and while the icing was delicious, it was also super rich!! I was informed that it contained TWO pounds of confectioners sugar and 25 Oreos. OH MY!!!!
But that wasn’t all. There was also an assortment of cheesecake!! No way could I pass on a piece of that!!!
Choosing between the two desserts was like picking a favorite child(I couldn’t do it!!!) so I did what any smart person would do and grabbed a bit of both!!! I did manage to keep my pieces small, even halving the cheesecake and like I said, the Oreo cake was rich so I wasn’t able to finish all the frosting.
I know it looks like all I did was eat but I promise, there was more to the night than that!! There was a little talking, dancing and picture taking going on, too :-)!! We were the lame-o’s who left the party first but hey, we had a set of sleepy kids AND the hubs had to be up early for work this morning so we called it a pretty early night.
Just to keep you updated on the running schedule, here is what yesterday’s workout looked like:
Total: 30 minutes
- Run 13 minutes
- Walk one minute
- Run 13 minutes
- Walk 3 minutes to cool down
What is your favorite dessert? Would you have chosen the Oreo cake or the cheesecake?
What is one food you cannot keep in the house due to temptation?
