Still holding on

This week was busy again.
I haven't sparked at all. Gave up on tracking water, fitness minutes and my other goals. I haven't even recorded my weight.
What I did was morning exercise, then work 10+ hours, spend a little time with my family (on 3 days by phone as I was out of town) and go to bed.
But it was not a bad week.
I made very good progress on my business trip, and ran about 30 minutes around the lake every morning. I was feeling tired and slow, but to my surprise my pace was 9:35 in the first morning, and 9:31 and 9:34 in the next two.
My 5K PB was 9:15 last October, so this is quite good : )
Eating went well. Getting off work after 9 pm when all the shops are closed with the only available food option healthy packed dinner definitely helps to avoid evening overeating.
I also got back to my goal weight.
Monday is my 45th birthday.
When I was young, I thought I would be hopelessly old and probably fat too at the age of 45.
I'm not : ))
I feel better than ever, age means nothing to me.
And I look better than anytime in the past 20 years, at least my husband tells me so.
I'm too tired to cook or go out, all I wish is staying at home and spending some quiet time with my kids and husband.
And my birthday is on Monday when I have to give a very important training, and will be out of town all day.
So we will celebrate on Sunday, ordering some thai food (I'll add a lot of steamed vegetables) and my daughter will bake a cake.
I planned not to work at all during the weekend, but I feel I'm not so well prepared for the Monday training as I normally do, and have some ideas to improve my presentation and training material... So I will have to. But I'm enjoying it, and do my best to get enough rest.
I slept well in most nights and I'm not stressed out, so I guess I'll be OK.
