birthday and more

Tuesday, July 16, 2013

Well I've enter my 47 th year! I'm hoping this will be my healthiest,fittest happiest year yet!
My hubby got me a lounge chair, two new bird feeders, Lancome perfume and the goody bag they give away,three bath and body works body sprays and five pairs of victorias secret undies. Those undies are way too minimal so we will be going back to see if they have something other than bikinis. Bless his heart I never have worn bikinis, those are for skinny chics:-) how lucky am I he thi ks I could wear them!
So here we are headed to Bonefish Grill and then to see the Lone Ranger.

Here I am in my birthday finery

I was happy to have a chance to wear that dress, I'd bought it nearly a year ago when we were suppose to go to Vegas!
So I'm spending my days in the patio pool, getting a bit of sun each day. It's so important to soak up vitamin D. Our country is so lacking due to the suncreen usage. Get ten minutes a day with no sunscreen on. Better to get it naturally than a pill! Since I don't absorb vitamins from pills I get from the sun and still my levels aren't high enough.
I've bought one swimsuit a few weeks ago at Kohls. Then I went to Woman Within online and tried size 16 tops and 14 bottoms and 16 one piece. I feel sort of ok in them:-) I'm thrilled the tops have great built in support. My legs are my worst attribute. Losing weight made them worse, like you deflated them and now the skin is saggy. The classical stretch workouts are building muscles but slowly!
I'm getting more confident though. Consider I haven't even owned a bathing suit in 12 years! So getting a tan is helping the pale fat legs look a bit better!
So here is the first meal I've cooked in awhile!
Chicken and vegetable skewers with coconut sauce-not pictured- served with pad thai ginger noodles and vegetables

Hope everyone is doing great and having a super summer!

    Whoa... you look FANTASTIC! How wonderful you finally had a reason to put on that beautiful dress, it looks GREAT on you. Very nice.

    Your hubby sounds like a good guy... buying you undies was probably his way of saying you'd look nice in something ... smaller.
    A word on vitamin D: I have taken 15,000 UI daily for more than 3 years. My D level was at 36 at the middle of those 3 years and remained there the entire time. I'm not sure what it was prior to taking vitamin D. In March of this year I quit taking vitamin D supplements and resorted to the real stuff (sunshine) on most days. (I have never used sunblock in my life.) In June I had my D level checked again and 3 months it went from 36 to 65.5. So you are absolutely right, nothing beats the real thing!
