I thought I might have some issues with my birthday this year... I'm crossing over from "40" into "The 40's", lol. But I'm ok with it. In fact, I'm better than ok with it. I feel really good about where I'm at. Over the last year, I had knee surgery (didn't gain weight during recovery), attended the Arnold Sports Festival as an Eat Clean Diet Ambassador, became a Champion Nutrition sponsored athlete, I trained for, competed in, and brought home trophies from my first Figure Competition, got a writing contract with World Physique Women magazine, and am now working with my mentor and best friend to launch our own business - which has grown out of my journey.Oh! And I am celebrating THREE years of weight loss maintenance, to boot! Schweet! :-) I'm pretty darn pleased with this last year, my 40th, and look forward to what's coming.
I actually began celebrating early. Last night after work, Tab and I hit the nail salon for pedicures. Two words, people... foot massage. Ahhhhhh! Tab and I worked on your applications while we had our feet done (seriously, you guys make this hard!). We meant to get a photo, but forgot :-( It was funny though, the two of us in those big chairs with our toes being painted while we're poring over these giant notebooks in our laps with neon stickies everywhere. LOL!
My toes are now a sparkly neon green (ha!), and then I had fakes put on for Halloween... I went long (goes better with the costume) and they're an awesome shade of red... it's called, "I'm not really a waitress". ROFL! I will not be keeping the length after the party, but the green toes? I might have to keep those awhile :-)
|Yes, I do have midget toes. Whatever.|
We actually had a bet going on how long it would take me to injure myself with the new claws... Tab had me at 10 minutes. I win! I made it 2 1/2 hours. Ok, so it's not really a win (hello, injury), but still! :-) And no, I'm not going to talk about how I injured myself. It's mortifying.
Back home after that it was dinner - Taco salad. I ate while working on more applications - Bill watched UFC. I enjoy it, too, but have to say... those guys are more than a little nuts.
Which brings me current :-) Here's to an awesome weekend! Song for the day... Rihanna "Cheers"
