Na-na, na-na, na-na! Is it wrong to sing to yourself? If so, my brain is so wrong this morning!
I am officially 41. I don't feel older. I think you lose that feeling older feeling about 12 and it only comes back when you're in your 80's. I bought a watch Saturday at the QVC store in the Mall of America. It's similar to this one only no Mickey. Pete looked at it and asked why it was so big. I told him watches must be like glasses - the older you are, the bigger the glass part gets.
I started off today just like any other day - at the gym at 5am. Pete accidentally took my running shoes out of the bag so I had to get on the treadmill in my outdoor running shoes that are 2 years old. It was different and my legs noticed it. I wanted to quit, but I did it. Actually I wanted to stay in bed and listen to the rain/snow/sleet instead of going to the gym. I did my 40 minutes/2.25 miles and we headed home.
I've been working my behind off at work on a case that kind of blew up. Sorry that I can't elaborate more.
I have a nice healthy fish dinner planned with more roasted veggies. I didn't buy a cake and I don't think Pete is headed out to buy one. However, someone at work brought The 7 Pound Chocolate Cake from Costco. You can see pictures of it on the blog in the link. It's SINFUL! And I'm aiming to have a piece. I've been and intend to be good in all my other eating for the rest of the day.
As for my birthday goal of 15 pounds lost by today - I didn't make it. But you know what? I have so much muscle in my arms, back, chest and legs. My pants are loser (I can fit into regular sizes/Misses clothes) in most stores for pants and shirts. So I'm happy with my progress. While I haven't lost pounds, I can tell that I've lost fat and built muscle.
