Good morning to all. It has been so hectic here and Rascal woke me up at 4 am. My husband and I both lost weight so shopping for my birthday dinner for something new to wear took up our week. He lost 16 lbs and I have lost 30, (20 since I started this). It has been a long haul but worth the wait. I am going to lose at least 30 more in 2014.

My plan was to avoid buying clothes, except work out and yoga clothes, but that has become inconvenient. I needed to shop, and I bought a fabulous wrap dress that is very retro and a little sexy. I feel great but I am not yet where I need to be. So much more hard work to be done, but I am trying not to beat myself up with thoughts of not being thin enough. That damn devil on my shoulder has reappeared just in time for my birthday tomorrow, and making me feel a little less than I should be. I need to own where I am now, and enjoy my Birthday and this journey.

I have decided to switch my weigh in back to Tuesdays. I do not like to weigh in before the weekend, it seems when I weigh in early in the week it starts my week off to a great start. I know I ate more salt than usual the last week, and I am splurging on Christmas a little. I bought some amazing cookies and I plan to indulge in them.

Tomorrow morning I am going to attend Richard Simmons holiday class, it should be a healthy and fun way to kick my birthday in. The toy drive is in full swing, and this weekend I am buying my toys for Alexandria House. We are delivering them on Monday.

Off for now, more of the same hectic energy today after work. Wishing you a sun filled day on the second shortest day of the year.
