It was my birthday yesterday.

Wednesday, September 19, 2012

Don't get all excited...it was really a non-event sort of day, except I got presents. :) My fiance had made me a vegan German chocolate cake for my birthday over the weekend--so tasty, although I have discovered as a result of this yummy cake that too much sugar makes me crazy congested. Of the post-nasal drip variety. In the old days, that cake would have been inhaled and devoured within 24 hours...here it is four days later and there's still half a cake. That's with both of us eating it--it's really too sweet. My palate has really changed since changing my diet...apples are too sweet for me now.

It was also icky rainy stormy weather yesterday, but we're rewarded with cooler, overcast weather today, so I've already decided to go for a short walk at lunch today. I went for my first short walk last Thursday after being cleared to exercise by the orthopedist--less than a mile, and very slow. I'm hoping today to maybe go a little bit farther, and maybe a little bit faster too. I need to not only regain fitness, but also not re-injure my foot. Especially since I need to make sure it's feeling good before hitting serious training for next year's Flying Pirate half marathon. And I want to start a walk/run program...I know, one thing at a time. So the walk at lunch will have to do.

I don't feel any older. Last year was a milestone birthday, so it felt like a bigger deal. This year, it was just another workday (and I'm working two jobs still). I'm okay with that...I'm still around, and that's the important thing.

    Thanks for sharing. Mine was Monday. The best people are born in September!! I have a life threatening health issue so consequently I cherish every birthday even if I don't do anything other than feel good I made it another year. I also have a great husband that reminds me how important each uneventful day truly is.
