Made my calories today but only did 85 minutes of cardio but I did 12 minutes of strengthening.
This is really a depressing winter. It started snowing @ 4 am but didnt start laying until about 9 pm. But our school system around here is so screwed up that they canceled school & so also no school tomorrow. I really can't wait for this all to melt away . . . I WANT TO RIDE MY BIKE TO CURVES.
Thank you all again for all the birthday wishes goodies & emails. I belong to some awesome teams.
I turned 42 yesterday. Growing up I only had 1 birthday party when I was 12 with a Wonder Woman cake & my party got ruined by my stepfather showing up @ my dad's house & dragged his kids out of the party. Then every year since then it seemed like something always was going on to make it a not so good day. So I dont celebrate @ all anymore.
Last yr I had the flu & the kids I taught peace skills to showed up @ my house with a cake that they made for me in their cooking class (last yr the school was only 9th grade wit 8 students).
This year I actually planned to go out to eat with friends and a get together BUT like every year it all fell apart then the babys school was closed fro in-service; the food bank didnt deliver our food when they were suppose to the other day but called yesterday morning to say they would be @ the church in 5 mins & then I couldn't get a hold of most of the ppl who help to move all the boxes so it was 4 of us & I pulled my back. Then I spent most of the day sitting by myself in a room then the baby got up from her nap n I had to go to Walmart to get dad's meds take a cab there they only have half of them ready so then I take 2 buses home. To spend the rest of hte evening feelign sorry for myself. I guess what they this b-day so hard for me is that my hubby is in a program (let me call it wat it is a rehab) & @ this point in his treatment he is not allowed to have any contact with anyone.
So now I've shared why I m so thankful 4 Sparkpeople & the wonderful support of the teams that I am on
