Happy Birthday to Me
Saturday, February 11, 2017
Today is my birthday. Time to begin my thirty-sixth trip around the sun. I got out the scales this morning, and if the metal monster is to be believed, I am at 84 KGS, or 180.8 lbs. A loss of 6 KGS or 13.2 lbs. I don't feel it, or see it yet.
I haven't been blogging because of an internet credit/money shortage but I have been plugging along, following my eating plan pretty well most days. I haven't been eating any wheat or sugar, except to sweeten my morning cup of tea. Overall I have been low carb, whole foods, gluten free with a few slips here and there. I haven't done as much exercising as i had intended. This last week I did get out in the garden and yesterday I took Bruno the dog for a walk. He HATED it. He was so offended by the leash, he kept trying to lay down and quit at every shady spot. I tried to bribe him with a cake from the shop on the way and he refused! I have never in my life seen this dog refuse food! Finally we came to a little stream and I stopped for him to have a drink. He drank, had a roll in the water, then he laid down in the middle of the stream and refused to budge! I have a pic of it on my phone, but I can't seem to get photos from my phone on to spark people. It was hilarious! I am pretty sure the next time he sees me with the leash he is going to run away.
This birthday year my goal is to learn to love myself and to take care of me. I know that sounds selfish, but its about time. I have spent all of my energy taking care of the various men in my life since I was sixteen, and not a single one of them ever reciprocated. Now its my turn.
