My favorite thing about Valentine’s day is…um…dessert! Yep it’s another excuse for me to have some sweet treats. Yep, I need an excuse. Don’t judge. lol! Around Christmas, let’s just say I let myself have a few tooooooooooo many desserts, which resulted in less of my clothes fitting, so I haven’t had a lot of treats in the New Year and it’s about time I splurge a little don’t ya think? I mean it’s almost February so the New Years resolutions are okay to drop right!? Hahahahaha. Just kidding. Stay strong.
You gotta give yourself grace…
Just a smidgen…
I’ve never been a dieter and never needed to be one, but the last few years I’ve (sigh) had to start watching what I eat and my portion sizes cause I can pack on the pounds pretty fast since I’m almost eeeeeek 40. And it sure is a lot harder to get them off than put them on… ya know what I’m saying!? Alas, I have an upcoming post about how I shed them though.
But until then we can splurge love… no worries.
