Happy birthday to me, hehe!
(Where did those 33 years go?)
I weighed in this AM at 142.8 lbs, which was a nice surprise since I haven’t been this low since early December. Apparently not ALL of the gain over the holidays can be explained away as water retention.
:: blushes ::
Anyhow, I’m feeling and looking leaner after two weeks back on the warpath, and with all of these challenges (not to mention four male co-workers ready to give me $#@% if I slack off) to motivate me, I am looking forward to rocking my skinny Pants-o-Meter AG jeans in 10 more weeks.
When I crawled into bed last night, I found that DH had put a wrapped package under the covers. It turned out to be a copy of The New Rules of Lifting for Women by Lou Schuler, Alwyn Cosgrove, and Cassandra Forsythe. I’ve had the original (men’s/unisex) version of the book checked out from the library on the serial renewal plan (e.g. nobody else wants it, so I keep renewing it online) for the past 4 months, and I’m eager to see what the differences are between the two books. WOO!
I took today off and will be spending my birthday working out, sewing a cute party dress, reading, posting the final details about the PDB/JSF cruise, and possibly catching Sweeney Todd. Dinner will be homecooked food at my parents’ house, including snow crab legs and tons of fresh oranges and papaya from my dad’s garden no doubt. I’ll try to control the portions as I am due for 2 week progress pics and measurements on Sunday.
