Here it is the start of a new month, and for me that means an upcoming birthday, too, so I figure it can really be the start of a new me. Actually, I think the new me started on January 1st, when I got serious here on Sparkpeople, but now I am recommitting to making THIS month a good one as well. Right now I can barely eat because of this nasty "bug," but I know that once this has passed I will be back at the Y exercising - because I actually miss it right now!!! I realized that I have eaten only 2 cookies since the first of January (a major accomplishment for me) and I don't feel deprived. I will have to plan things so that I can enjoy a slice of birthday cake when the time comes, but I know that is possible. I am thinking that I will ask my hsuband to get an ice cream cake to share with our family here in Maine, because any left-overs will not call to me the way a regular cake would, even though I will enjoy the slice i plan to have. Well, this blog has turned into a stream of consciousness. so I will stop right now.
