Randomness, the Birthday Edition
-It’s my 27th birthday! At least, it is for one more hour.
– I’ve always groaned about having a birthday this close to Christmas, but I’ve gotten over that. Sure, I’d love to get presents at a different time of year instead of all at once, but it’s kind of special having a December birthday, with things decorated for the holidays and lots of fun events. Plus, when I wake up tomorrow I won’t be sad that my birthday is over because it means it’s 5 days til Christmas!
– Since it’s my birthday, I make no apologies for posting this–I always make these crazy weight loss goals for events, vacations, birthdays, etc and never reach them…but today, I reached my goal of being 127 by my 27th birthday!
I’ve lost 15 pounds since September. I don’t feel bad putting this on here because I’ve been very honest about my struggle to lose weight before and after Jack. (Just don’t judge me if I’m not that weight after Christmas, ok? Or if I have another baby!)
It’s been a tough road, but I’ve finally tapped into the right mindset for myself and realized what works for me. Now, if I’ll ever feel ready to post what I’m doing is another story…
You can see the rest of those shenanigans here.
Today, I got to sleep in since Reid’s off work.
We had a relaxing morning and went for lunch at a nearby Asian restaurant. We had the place to ourselves, except for an elderly couple.
Because it was lunch, our bill was $11!! We couldn’t eat a Chick-fil-a or McDonald’s that cheap!
Then, we walked to Publix to get a small ice cream cake, as per our tradition.
We came home and I went to work.
On my way to work, I got Starbucks and the barista winked at me. He must have known is was my birthday.
I came home late and Reid and I watched The Help.
All in all, a good birthday. Very low-key and relaxing.
We’re going to see Santa tomorrow! I’m so excited!
PS: Thank you to those that called, e-mailed, texted, and facebooked me well wishes today. It’s a good feeling. My cup is full, my friends.
