Don’t forget this…Mark your calendars!!

5k run-walk-trot for my birthday

So 50 is only 8 days away. I am going to greet my new era, new age with as much gusto as I can possible muster up. The 23rd will be my first day back to work without Mike at home, it will be my first breakfast alone. It will be my first morning not to get Mike up and moving. But is will also be my first day at being 50 years old and since I can’t change any of it, the getting a bit older and Mike heading off I have got to deal with it and face it all head on and that is what I am going to do.

This 50 is going to be “the day” that my life begins. It’s my time to concentrate on me and getting me to the place in life I want to be. Life will be different and challenging and exciting and interesting and hard too but I can now take the time to make sure that I am here when Mike graduates, when Mike marries, when Mike has babies and maybe even when Mike’s babies have babies. I can be here to hold, learn to explore and relove my hubby, I can be here to just plain grow old in the healthiest body possible.

I have spent more time relosing some of the pounds I lost in the beginning but that is going to stop now. Well really I have some to still relose before I’m onto the virgin pounds that have been stuck here for way to many years but I know I did it once and I know that I can do it again. But it’ll happen.

So there, don’t forget to mark your calendars and if you’d like to join me starting April 23rd on the way to losing a few more pounds and ton up and look good then I’ll be there to cheer you on and when you have a moment or two in your lives you can stop by and tell me to more my butt and get those extra pounds off and tone up those lumps and bumps.

Take care my friends. Do have a blessed and awesome Sunday!

I know having Mike leave is going to be so hard for you. You are such a good mom. Just make sure that you take those emotions and challenges that you are facing and channel them into the positive, not the negative. All too often when I am hurt or stressed, I turn to emotional eating. We'll be here to support you. I can't wait to see what the summer holds for you!

I'm Planning on doing a walk in your honor if my leg allows for it:-) I was going to do one all on its own but I may have to combine it with another that I am registered for on Sat if the leg will only allow for 1. Happy belated birthday!!
