Yesterday was my birthday 7/23/12. I'm a LIONESS (LEO), can't you tell?? I will upload some pictures later, but it was a fabulous day. I had to work the (entire) 24 hours before my birthday but decided to skip a much needed nap and make the most of the day. I had a delicious brunch prepared by my neighbors because they knew I had to work all night... HOW AMAZING WAS THAT? Then picked up my pup from the doggy hotel- he was happy to see me! I took a quick hour nap then headed to a baseball game. After the game we got a delicious dinner and I ate it ALL because I was starving and hadn't eaten since brunch! They even gave me a FREE brownie sundae (my favorite dessert... and I don't even really like sweets) and I shared it with my friend. Over all, this was an amazing birthday even though I was exhausted, had to change my plans at the last minute, and didn't go out of town.
Today I was surprised with an edible bouquet AT WORK! How sweet!! :-) I only ate ONE chocolate covered strawberry and left the rest in the fridge to enjoy tomorrow. I'm gonna spread this celebration out! :-)
I was exhausted at 7 pm so I decided to lay down and go to sleep. Then, I figured it was too early. So I pulled out a book I wanted to finish and guess what, I read for 3 hours and FINISHED the book. I read the last hour on the spin bike so I got a WORKOUT (630+ cals) and finished my book. Double bomb.com for that! :-D LOL
And now, I am going to takea bath and drink some tea before bed. I am feeling amazing and starting my 27th year off with a bang. I finally see my beauty and worth and it's an amazing feeling to be able to celebrate yourself. Thank God he took the time to make me! :-)
Here's to a healthy happy year and reaching my fitness/nutrition goals!
