I woke up this morning thinking about my birthday that is coming up tomorrow. We're celebrating today, but it's tomorrow. Anyway. I was just thinking about this past year and all the changes that have happened. I haven't stuck with my weight loss plan perfectly, but I have lost some weight. And I thought ahead to this next year. I'll have to sit and write down some goals for this coming year. Goals for home and family and for myself.
But overall, I think this past year has gone well. My son turned 4, which was fun. And my husband and I celebrated six years of marriage in May. We have managed to stay in one apartment for nearly two years now, which is an accomplishment for us. No joke, in the 6 years Rich and I have been married, we have moved 5 times. One of them being totally unplanned due to a water pipe that had burst.
Anyway, as I was getting dressed for birthday dinner I had one of the best non scale victories! Best birthday present! I had picked out a top that I like, but only wear once in a while because the sleeves can be kind of tight. Well, I put it on and...it was too big! So then I tried another top...also too loose! Which made me both super happy and kind of anxious. Cause that means I'll need to go shopping! I love shopping, but I feel like I rarely go anymore because I need someone to watch the Bug for me. Trying to take him shopping with me makes things difficult. And hubby gets up for work at 1:30 in the a.m. so by the time he gets home, he's tuckered. But I'll have to work it out and what a fun excuse to buy some new stuff! What a fun birthday present!

I have really slacked this past few weeks with all of my weight loss goals. So I decided today that I just need to get back into it. I'm starting with my Fast-Break goals, the plan to meet those goals every day this week. My other goal is to make sure that I track everything I eat because I've gotten very lax on my tracking. I had caught myself feeling bummed about my weight and I don't know why, but it seems so easy to forget that I am the one in charge of myself. So yeah, I feel like getting those Fast Break goals going is really going to help.
I've also been having a tough time with sugar cravings, and I'm considering picking up the Tame Your Sweet Tooth challenge. My only concern is all the birthdays this month. Including mine. I don't know, part of me feels like I just really need to get this under control. And I will.

Yesterday was Mother's Day, and important day to me because I am Mommy to 4 year old Dillon! He's one of the best things I've done with my life. So super proud of that guy! And on top of that, it was my hubby and I's 6th wedding anniversary! Two great guys in my life. I'm so lucky!
We started off the day going to church where pastor delivered a great message geared towards the ladies titled Victorious Secrets. :) And there was a photo booth set up so that we could do family pictures for Mother's Day.
After that, we spent a little time at my Mom and Dad's to wish my mom Happy Mother's Day. Dillon was acting super tired so we thought he might take a nap. Mom offered to let him take a nap at her place while Rich and I went to check out the new Lush store that just set up in our local mall.
They are awesome! All handmade and all natural bath stuff and cosmetics.
Dillon ended up not taking a nap and we hung out at Mom's house a little longer after this before taking Dillon to his Pop Pop's house. Pop Pop had offered to watch Dillon so that Rich and I could go out to eat on our own.
We went to this great local restaurant called The Social.
I had started out the day trying to stay within calorie limit but I had decided by dinner time that I really wanted to just indulge and celebrate. I had a delicious duck leg with a pear and frisee salad, which probably wasn't too bad as far as nutritionals go. But I also had 2 glasses of sangria and Rich and I shared a pumpkin spice crème brulee! Soooo good!
I really enjoyed my day, and I did also get some walking in. And while I enjoyed it, I took the time to think ahead to next month. June is celebration crazy. Everybody's birthday is in June, including mine, plus Father's Day and my parents wedding anniversary. So I chose to relax and enjoy this one, but realize I'm going to still have fun, but maybe take it a little easy. We'll see. :)
