Yay, Me!!


So I survived my birthday. I'm 39, no big whoop. Thanks to everyone who stopped by and reassured me things would be okay. Of course, they are. PMS and birthdays probably aren't the best combination. Even though I was kind of dreading this birthday, I have to say I'm actually looking forward to my 40th. I'm going to have a good old 80's spodie. I figure if I start telling Joji now, it will sink in and might actually happen.
Something else I have decided to do for my 40th is a triathlon. My friend Holly has totally inspired me to try it. This Saturday she is doing a triathlon rely. She is doing the swimming leg. Tonight she called to see if I wanted to swim. Sure, why not. I haven't really swam, swam in a lake in a while. Sure we puttered around Lake Washington a couple of weeks ago, but this distance swimming (a half of mile or so). Holly has been training for a while now and I wasn't sure I would be able to keep up. But I did and it feel really great. This was definitely a boost to the old ego and a jump start to get back into the "healthier me" thing (again)
Yes, I watched Oprah the other day about aging. I figured this was a good time to kick it into gear. My goal is to move the big "cachunk" on the dr.'s scale two clicks to the left (I hope that makes sense) by next summer. I will never be a skinny minnie. I just want to look better. So that is my "yay, me" for today.
Thanks for letting me share :0)
