Next WEdnesday (21st) will be my 24th birthday. I have no plans. Last year I had a great time on my birthday, we went to Las Vegas. My hubby's bday is in April, so since I got a trip on my bday last year, he got a big hawaiian themed party. And we said that this year I would get a party and he would get a trip.
I really don't want to plan my own party. Actually there has been no mentioning of party or anything else. It almost seems hubby is not mentioning it on purpose? COuld he possibly be planing something for me? I don't know....I don't really like surprises. But if he does something for me I would freak (in excitement of course!). He is very busy and always seems to forget things. So if he did something for me it would mean he really put himself to it. But what if I'm just making things up in my head and he really is busy and not planning anything? lol...
Anyway...as some of you may know, I make cakes. Last year I didn't have a cake. I was too busy in Vegas to even think of cake. This year, I'm making a cake! I know, calories, fat...blah blah. But it's my birthday! I'll have cake on my 24th birthday and just the way I want it.
I was searching for recipes and I found the best combination! To die for chocolate cake with Peanut butter Mousse. I love chocolate cake and peanut butter. Perfect!
So...this weekend I'm heading over to the grocery store to get the stuff for my cake. Party or not, I'm having chocolate cake with peanut butter mousse. I can't wait! My mouth is watering now....
*** I'll need lots of milk!!!

I think my son's "terrible twos" are acting up. Man...it was stressful today. I'm just glad the day is almost over. I'm looking forward to Thursday.

I have to keep that in my head, always! My hubby keeps telling me this, since I've messed up a few times this past weeks. I get all guilty and upset and he reminds me that I just have to shake it up and keep going.
I messed up this weekend. It was my niece's 1st bday party. I had hot dogs and burgers. They were delicious. But the guiltiness took over me soon after.
Today is a new week, a new day, a new hour, and minute to make up for the harm done. So... I'm off to clean up my kitchen, unpack, and get my plyometrics workout done.

When I first started this journey, it was because I was in a deep desperation to bring the old me back. I had been depressed too long and neglected myself. Getting on the scale, and not to mention getting naked in front of a mirror was one of the hardest things to do. I was in HORROR to know I was 185 lbs even after close to 2 years of having my son. What had happened to me? I used to think of myself as BEAUTIFUL and CONFIDENT. I was now nothing near that image I had of myself. A trip to visit my best friend who lives in a different country now, made me change my point of view. I am strong enough to change and do what I set myself to do. I started with different dvds, took pictures, wrote down my progress, all that stuff. Just last month, I finally saw the update pics from August-December. I was FLABBERGASTED to see what I had accomplished in 4 months! I could've done this a long time ago.
So I took the challenge this year for doing the p90x workout program. I am so happy to say that my hubby is doing it with me too. These three days have been hard, I am in pain. But I am CONFIDENT I will accomplish my goal and will be super sexy and ripped by 3/28/09, along with my hubby! I don't want to see me with only a BOWTIE, I want to see him with only a BOWTIE! lol My HEART tells me, I will complete this and anything set myself to do.
