|Ground turkey cookey!|
I pulled myself together for my birthday dinner at a local Risotteria. That means the main item on the menu is risotto. I finally got to try pumpkin risotto & fell in love with it!

Instead, the big finish was Meringata, which is a type of meringue cake. It wasn't made in a traditional way (layered with a creamy center), but I still enjoyed it. And there was a candle to blow out!

I had a wonderful night with wonderful friends. It can be difficult to celebrate anything when your husband is deployed. My friends are awesome!
And finally, this morning. The beginning of my clean eating streak. As promised, I did a formal weigh-in. And a weekend of indulgence, then a birthday dinner, definitely took its toll.
I'm not worried, though. I know the streak is going to take this right back down. I've started off great & haven't had any issues today. I even logged some lunch time track miles. My 34th year is off to a fantastic & positive start!
