I had written a whole entry about my trepidation towards turning 29 – how I felt that I wasn’t living up to the expectations I had set for myself….how disappointed I was – blah blah.
I scraped that entry. Today is my birthday. I am officially 29. I might not be exactly where I want to be in life ~ but honestly, who is?! I’m on the track to being the person I want to be and just for today I am not going to dwell on my missteps. I’m going to celebrate my amazing life (chock full of friends who sing “Love Shack” at karaoke with me! an amazing family and a wealth of opportunity). Just for today I am going to let myself have cake (and a breakfast sandwich from Bagel World…mmmm) but force myself to do some cardio, Life is about balance, and if I want my birthday cheats, I have to work for them! Weeding through old entries I remember this one and realized that even on my birthday I’m not going hog-wild into a food coma. I’ve come a long way! 🙂
Here’s picture proof… (haha!)
Here’s a snapshot from my birthday last night. That cake was AMAZING….and I only had a small slice! I swear!
Birthdays are special and I’m lucky enough to be celebrating for the whole weekend; but I’m keeping in mind my goals when making food choices – I’m not falling off the wagon (like I usually do on birthdays, lol). I’m also going to plan some interesting workouts for the next week – if I plan ahead I will be more willing to get changed and workout! 🙂
Oh and I had my first WW weigh-in – down 3 pounds! I’ll take it. We didn’t stay for the meeting, because the topic was the same (our meeting was on Sunday and this was Saturday – so it was the same week). But, we’ve picked a new meeting time with a new leader to start attending.
I have one more day of b-day celebrating w/ my good friend Sharon tomorrow – then I’m onto 7 days of clean eating, and my hardcore workout plan. Goal: capris by spring! (aka Operation Cankle Be Gone). 😉
Thank you to everyone who sent me birthday wishes – I’m truly a lucky (sparkly!) lady!
