It’s official….. I’m 43!!! Yesterday (June 8th) was my birthday. Who has a birthday on a MONDAY? 😉. I started the day with a date….DREADmill.
It wasn’t a lot, but it was something! I had planned on doing another run AFTER work, but my meeting let out earlier than I thought and my buddy, Leslie couldn’t meet up.
It’s interesting…. the OLDER I get, the LESS I want to make a big deal about birthdays. I think birthdays are special still but I don’t need the fanfare (you know…big dinner, gifts galore, etc.). WAIT…I still like the GIFTS!! 😉. I came home early, changed my clothes, and watched TV (in my ROOM!) while the boys were busy elsewhere. To me, having some “veg” time is by far the BEST gift!! I caught up on some magazines, watched some mindless TV (old 90s sitcoms, I’d like to say) and waited for hubs to come home. He greeted me with a cocktail…vodka on the rocks with a lime (my FAVORITE!!). He made me a nice dinner with steak and asparagus with snow peas. (sorry no pic…because I SCARFED it down!!)
I figured (before my birthday) that my diet still needs to change. You think 40 is hard, wait until you are IN your 40s! #ugh. I’m stuck with this 10 pounds that seems to have made a permanent home on my body!!! I found the book from Christmas Abbott, one of my favorite CrossFit Athletes. It was just recently published and released and I was anxious to get my hands on it.
I need a super charge, so I’m willing to try something new. I will keep you posted, as I read along. I’m excited!! If you don’t know about Christmas, check out her site or follow her on IG and Twitter.
All in all, it was a great day….
PS..I also heard June 8th was National Best Friend Day! I hope all you BFFs had a great day!!
Tell me about your BFF! Me? I don’t have one. I’m what you’d consider a “butterfly” when it comes to friends. I’m friends with EVERYONE! I don’t think I ever really had a BFF. (That really isn’t as as SAD as it sounds!!😉). I LOVE all the friends I have and I treat them like they are ALLmy BFF!!❤️
