Happy Birthday to me!

Happy Birthday to me

Hey everyone today is my 45th Birthday.  It’s so hard to believe that I am 45. I don’t feel old at all but I just can’t get over how quickly time passes. I feel like was 25 just yesterday, that means soon I’ll be 65!  Just kidding, but I think you know what I mean.

So, I have to say I was very proud of myself today. I was going to start my day with a shake but my milk was bad. So I got an omelet for breakfast (onions & peppers) and was planning my shake for lunch. A friend of mine called and asked if I wanted to go out for lunch (which we never do at work) and I said no I was going to have my shake!

What??? Me saying no to going out to lunch? She even said “really?”

But I have lost 5.5 pounds in 11 days! I was going to wait and weigh myself on Saturday after the 12 days of the Shakeology but I couldn’t wait. So, I am now hovering at 140 -139… I knew I was probably going out to dinner tonight and wanted to eat my calories then.

For exercise the “crew” walked in the dog park in the rain! It wasn’t misting, it was really raining. But we geared up and headed off for our 2.5 miles. It was very muggy and uncomfortable but we didn’t even do the cut off and take the shorter route, we did the whole way. The dogs and owners were a wet mop when we finished but we all had fun.

Dan and I dried off and headed out for dinner. I was dying for pizza and beer so we went to a local place, The Bull Run, and I had a Mediterranean pizza with olives, feta, artichokes, spinach and mushrooms. I really wanted a gooey pepperoni and cheese but I went with the healthier pizza instead. I had a Sam Adam’s summer ale which was very good.

Thank you to everyone who wished me a Happy Birthday. Here is to a healthy and happy next year!
