Springy Journal - Joy

Well, today is my birthday...I´ve turned 51 young years!!! As a life long tradition, we eat at my Mom and Dad´s house and she makes home-made strawberry shortcake (so blessed to have been born in March - strawberry season in Spain : ) . I usually have 2 servings with 2 large biscuits in each serving, strawberries and fresh whipped cream.
Well, since this year I am on my fitness journey (for life!!) I decided to cut the biscuits in half and add more strawberries and less whipped cream. So I had 2 servings but only 2 biscuits instead of 4. Delicious, not stuffed and cut back on the calories big time. Yeah for the new birthday tradition I´ve started today.
Tomorrow it will be back to serious fitness as usual.

What a great life choice! I will have to remember it when I have my angel food with strawberries and whipped cream cake for my birthday in May! How fun that we have the "same" tradiditon!

I'm so glad that you were able to continue your birthday tradition, yet start a new with lower calories. We had strawberries today too, but no shortcake or whipped cream. The berries were delicious! :-) Happy Birthday! :-)

Love, Kathryn :-)

Awesome job, Joy! Happy Birthday!!

Strawberries are a great great food choice. I noticed when i had them without sugar (sugar substite stevia instead) with a sugar free cookie, I actually lost weight! They are incredible. Sweet yet healthy!!

Now I want some strawberries! jeje

Big Birthday hugs,
