Thank you all for the birthday wishes. I had a great day, exactly how I wanted it: quiet and easy. In the morning my best friend T. and her daughter came for coffee and cake. I got my usual birthday gift from here: an invitation for dinner at her house. We’re doing that in July.
In the afternoon we went to a restaurant for a high tea. My Mom and Mother in law were also invited and off course Miss Bella went with us too. It was delicious and we had a great time. We ate more than enough and didn’t have dinner last night because we both still had a full stomach.
I didn’t get any gifts because R. and I have decided that we stop doing that and we told our mothers that too. We both find it difficult to think about something we want for our birthday, that’s why we stop doing that. We’d rather spent the money on a weekend away together or something like that.
I did buy shoes by the way. Not 1 pair but 2 pairs, I couldn’t choose. Bought them online and will put a photo on my blog as soon as they arrive.
I did get a gift however this morning from my other best friend K. A lovely shower set with shower cream, body cream, body scrub and foot balm.
Today is the start of Operation Fran back to 73 kg I will do a report on how this goes, including weight loss of the week, every Saturday on my blog.
I do have a problem though: still little motivation for running/strength training/yoga. This has to stop because the longer it takes, the more difficult it is to start again. Today I skipped my run, tomorrow is my rest day but on Wednesday I really need to pick it up. I’m going to post my schedule for the week to come on my blog, starting today. Maybe this will help me to stick to the plan.
I did walk 45 minutes with Bella after dinner. It was such lovely weather and at least I got some exercise in today.
