Weigh in and BIRTHDAY
Happy Birthday to ME!
Nope, I don't mind saying it!
I have to tell you how special this weekend was. My husband did an AWFUL lot of work to make my pre-birthday weekend special. I went to the SPA - got a massage, Reiki session, mani and pedi! THEN we had the rest of the afternoon and evening to totally relax together. THEN I walked into my mothers house (since the boys stayed with her on Saturday night) to my family there for a surprise party!!
I felt so overwhelmed and blessed by the attention lavished on me this weekend.
My birthday for the past few years has been a little overlooked - because Thing 1's b-day is very close to mine, so we are normally concentrating on that. I think hubby decided to make a change this year!
Now, needless to say - my diet suffered a little. I had pre-planned my Saturday birthday Starbucks and I knew would would go have a burger at our favorite burger joint. I figured those things in, logged them and everything.
I was NOT expecting a party on Sunday!
And no, I was NOT going to "not eat" at my surprise party!
But that's life, right? What a joy it was to have all my family there. Everyone made food and everyone enjoyed themselves. My kids helped a LOT making some birthday cupcakes, and YES I had one of those too!
I didn't go nuts, but my diet was carb-heavy this weekend.
I'm totally back on track today. My co-workers brought in "birthday bagels" and I declined. It was sweet of them! THEN there was a cake, pasta salad and strawberries! I helped myself to a spoonful of strawberries and that's all. I know the cake will be enjoyed by everyone else, so I'm not worried!
I got in 2 intense workouts this weekend, and I DID weigh in on Saturday -- DOWN 2 MORE!
Total of 7 lbs gone!
Today, food back on track, workout planned. Yes, even though it's my ACTUAL birthday today - I think I have done my fair share of celebrating!
That's all for today guys --
Keep Moving Forward!!
