Happy Birthday to Me
Monday, March 16, 2009
So today is my official Birthday.. I am 43 years old. I don't know what happened, it seemed like yesterday that I was in my twenties. Time is marching on.
I started the Diet Doc's program yesterday. It is a program that helps raise your metabolism. God knows I could use help in that department. It is eating 6 small meals a day. High in protein lower in fat and carbs, but not Atkins low. And the book simply describes the chemistry of your body. I have read it once and am re reading it again. I am very excited about trying this and seeing how it works.
I had a great day with Amy yesterday shopping. My " girls" needed some help so she brought me bra shopping. Bra shopping can be way overwhelming. Too many styles, colors and shapes. Geez. I just wanted to run out of the store. Amy got me to buy two. My favorite comment by her was, "Maybe next time we go bra shopping we can try different shades." Yep, it brought me back to middle school shopping with my mom. I went to put my favorite kind on and Aims told me it made me look pointy. LOL She was right. I was going for old familiar. Gosh, I am not a shopper. I am a buyer. I run in, buy and run out.
I am not sure what i am doing for my Birthday. I wanted to go to the gym, but I did a lot of raking already and I need to go grocery shopping. I think I will just play it by ear.
I got some great presents from my family, a new food scale that i picked out from one brother. An olive oil misto and a calorie counter book from my other brother and sister in law, and my sister in law gave me whey protein mix. How supportive they all are. I am so lucky.
