The Birthday Stretch

My daughter officially turned 7 yesterday.  Cannot believe it!  She was a bit confused that after 2 parties, one with the family and one with friends, that she turned 7 on a day with no celebration.  😉  We did give her our gifts and sang to her with a leftover cupcake from her friend party, but  her actual birthday was definitely much lower key than earlier in the week.  I look at her and see how much she is like me when I was her age.  She is beginning to get into music, loves writing and just got her first diary.   Though it is bittersweet watching her grow up, it is definitely a blessing and a wonderful journey.

weekly update

I am finally feeling better…yay!  I was able to get back into a more normal lifting and cardio routine this week.  I have survived 2 Christmas parties since last weekly update and I am still at my 20.4 BMI.  While my goal is taking longer than I initially intended…I am excited that I am still remaining the same or slowly losing, especially in light of all the food around these days.  😉  We will have Christmas and then Christmas #2 and hopefully I won’t have as much food temptation after that.  Be back next week.
