Here we are… my birthday.
For me, my birthday is essentially a version of Jan. 1. I make all kinds of resolutions/plans since I’m rehashing the past year anyway. Resolutions isn’t exactly a fair word since I’ve given these up a few years ago. But still, it makes me think about what I want for my year. And this helps define my purpose for the next 365 days.
Yesterday (my actual birthday) was a really busy day at work. We gave tours to perspective students and I worked a table from noon-4 pm. The highlight of this was the caf offers these oh so delicious cookies. Seriously, they are my absolute favorite. They are filled to the brim with gluten and sugar but I decided to throw that aside for my birthday treat. I’m sure I’ll pay for it but LOOK
The frosting is perfect – the fondant W? Nope – that hits the wayside. For dinner, I was off to Red Robin. I’ve been craving a burger and fries and they have the best fries ever! I also really like their gluten-free hamburger buns. I got silly full with french fries, campfire sauce and a birthday beverage. I’m not kidding – I brought home 3/4 of my burger and more fries. AND 3 containers of campfire sauce <–totally addicted.
Work out update, I ran/walked 3 miles on Monday. I didn’t get right up and get on the tready, I lazed around for the day, watched some Parks and Rec, Super Natural and ate an undercooked waffle. Seriously, snow days are MEANT to be enjoyed no matter that was a partial work day. I still got them miles done (along with some cleaning) because I have this dandy renewed sense of motivation. The miles were a struggle, I’m guessing it was from the 4th day in a row on the treadmill. Most likely not a lot for many but since I’m still in the “getting back into it” phase, I was feeling a bit shin splinty.
Anyway, it was a better birthday than I anticipated. Not because I thought it would be a bad day per say, my friends and family are/were wonderful. But I thought I would have the birthday blues. However, I realized I DIDN’T feel as down in the dumps about being a year older (mostly – I mean, c’mon, it still freaks me out somewhat) rather I have a good feeling about the year…
