where has the past year gone?

Sunday, March 13, 2011

...tomorrow I will be 41 - this time last year I was having a lovely birthday weekend. My hubby and I stayed in Stratford on Avon for the weekend in a lovely hotel and went to see Romeo and Juliet at the RSC theatre. We had our dinner at an italian restaurant. My boys were staying at Matts parents for the weekend and we had a lovely sunday lunch there as well before returning home.

My hubbie has got this week off as annual leave from work - going to be doing some diy jobs around the house.

For my birthday tomorrow we are going out for lunch to a local pub.

I am popping up to my sisters on Thursday for the day then going to stay at my friends house before we set off for a weekend in Barcelona - my friend is getting married at the end of April and 12 of us are going on a hen weekend there which will be great fun.

I was just looking at my blog for 13th March last year - my goal at that time had been to reach 140 lbs - looking at the tracker I was about 155lbs.
I have not reached that magic 140lbs for this birthday but am now at 146lbs which is still good going. I think that I am going to try and maintain where I am now as I have not managed to get lower than 142lbs - and that didn't last long!!

Well that was a bit of a ramble.

Hope everyone has a great week. emoticon emoticon

    It was a nice ramble about happy things. Hope you have a lovely birthday and a great trip to Barcelona. I'm sure that city has been chosen for its cultural interest!

41 is a number that crops up for me this year as well. It's our 41st wedding anniversary on Monday.

    Hope that you have a lovely day tomorrow Julia.

To be honest, what it says on the scale isn't as important as how you feel. If you have more energy, less stress (or more able to cope with any that you do have) and generally feel better, then that is worth 10lbs on the scale!

You are looking great anyway, and I would never have guessed your weight, so don't worry about it.
