It's my BIRTHDAY!!!

Tuesday, January 06, 2009

Hello to all my Spark People friends. I was surprised and delighted by all of the birthday wishes I found whenI logged on! Thank you to all. This is just the icing on the cake for my 40th birthday. And, no, I didn't have any cake!

My family and I will be going to a local steak house to celebrate my birthday next Sunday. I plan to enjoy my dinner, but not TOO much! Having my celebratory dinner on Sunday gives me time to work out a little extra beforehand to offset the celebrations!

Snow!

Dang! I am ready for summer! Left work today at 5:00. Got home at 7:15. Granted, had to stop to get a prescription, but still! A two-hour commute that is normally 35 minutes! I guess the important thing is that I made it home safely. Bonus - my husband had shoveled the walk and drive before I got home! Yay!

So, didn't make it to the gym, but I did do the Boot Camp Video for Day 2 and I did some arm strength training here at home. I'll make it to the gym tomorrow for sure!

Whew!

What a busy day!! Started by going out to breakfast at JB's. I did not do the breakfast buffet, because buffets are challenges to me! Had a sourdough breakfast sandwich instead. Very yummy.

Came home, did the Boot Camp Day 1 video and then headed to the gym. After I got home, I made candy and cookies (while doing laundry) and then made dinner. Oh, and had a stew in the crock pot lunches. Finally, everything is done and I can sit and just watch TV.

Busy day

My goals for today were to work out, finish the kids' bathroom, hang my son's door, and clean out the master closet. Amazingly, I got all of those things done! I even tried a new arm workout that was in my Self magazine, I think the September issue. The instructions say to use a 3 pound weight. I thought 3 pounds isn't much, but since it's the first time, I'll follow the rules. I can always do more next time, right? WRONG!!! Three pounds killed me! I really hope the new moves will add some definition to my arms. Three days from the big 4-0 and I don't like my old lady arms. emoticon

For the kids' bathroom, all that was left was hanging the towel hangers. Each kid got to say where there towel rack was placed. This should help prevent my youngest from having to hang on it and pull it out of the wall. I hope!

My son's door to his bedroom has been off for about six months. He used it as a swing and pulled it out of the wall. I glued wooden matchsticks together and stuffed them in the holes in both the door and the wall. Then, my hubby and I put new screws in. Not perfect, but he has a door!

For the master closet, I asked DH if I could get rid of some of his clothes. He told me no. So, I mostly just reorganized his portion of the closet. I must admit that I did throw away a few things that were soooo holey that he couldn't (shouldn't) wear them anymore and some socks that were all stretched out. I don't think he'll miss them. If he does, I'll find out soon!

Tomorrow I'm going to make cookies and candy. Most of it will go to work with me on Monday. I'm actually looking forward to going back to work! Two weeks off with no real trips and two kids out of school is just a little bit too long.

Later!
