Birthday success!

So yesterday was my birthday… I turned 36! That makes me closer to 40 now than to 30! I feel like I really made some positive choices yesterday though so I thought I’d blog about them so I can remember that making good choices IS possible, even at celebrations!

First of all, even though I had a really busy day (PTO meeting, school conference for Sammie, teeball game for Alex, homework time) I made time for exercise! I went to the gym and did 45 minutes on the AMT machine! What better gift to give myself than a good workout?

Then we had a little get together at the bowling alley on post. I ordered what I wanted (tuna melt sandwich) but instead of fries, I asked for alternatives, and got a side salad! We bowled a game (so again, doing something active!) and then I had made the cake myself, so I knew what went in it! I actually did not even end up eating cake until we got back home, because I was full, so I waited! I had a small piece when I got home and it was perfect and yummy! Oh, I also did not drink anything but water, even though in the past I would use the reasoning that a little lemonade or soda (root beer, my fav!!) would not hurt since it was my birthday!

I had a wonderful day with my family, and many wonderful friends! I was spoiled by everyone! Especially my hubby who COMPLETELY surprised me with an iPad! I was really shocked! He even wrapped it up inside a larger box so I had NO idea it could be that! I am loving it so far (which I knew I would since I am admittedly an Apple addict!).

So today, back on track! Tracking my food, making plans (since today is another busy day). I will make this healthy lifestyle WORK for me! No excuses!

Ok here are some photos now šŸ™‚
