Happy Birthday to Me !!
Another year has passed and I am now 37 years young. Well actually I will be 37 as of 9:00pm tonight. My youngest brother Greg will turn 30 tomorrow. Yes, he is 7 years and 5 hours younger than me. It was a little frustrating when I wanted to have birthday parties, as Greg would have the closest Saturday to his birthday without it being Thanksgiving, and I would end up having my party up to two weeks before or after my actual birthday. Other than that it was neat having a sibling with a birth date one day later (it was almost the same day as he was born at 2:00am).
I had a few of my friends over on Saturday afternoon to celebrate. It was also a chance to show off the new home. On top of that, I was also commemorating that I am actually divorced with papers in hand. Lots of great reasons to have people over.
There is a part of me that wishes I was still closer to 30 than 40. Since I do not have a magic youth elixir, I will just have to enjoy being 37. I am looking back on the goals I set for my 36th year, here they are for a refresher: Goals for 36
Well, I slacked on the exercise. I was playing my Wii exercise games for a while. Then there was bowling on Wednesday nights. I want to check out the Terwillegar Rec Centre for an aquasize class (or the YMCA, Dani we should do this together). I have lots of room for the Wii again, so I should pull out the games.
I don't have an excuse for not recording what I eat, except laziness. The SP and WW apps are on my phone. I can also access both websites from my computers at work and home. I was doing it a bit last week, and finding places like milk in my coffee where I was being sloppy.
With my online course - I finished two sections with bootcamps. I have finished the MS section as well. I wrote two tests on the first 8 chapters of Office Procedures. I just need to continue to read and make notes while I am watching tv in the evenings.
The goal that I actually achieved was getting divorced. It feels great to be able to put all that behind me and never look back.
I will post my new goals for 37 later this week.
