numbers...are mostly good.

So, Sunday is my birthday. One of those days with strange and unusual numbers attached...45.
I dont really feel that age. I wonder if there is a feeling to age? I know when I turned 30, I thought it would be a tremondous let down...but, my brother had been killed in a car accident only 9 days prior. So, I didnt really have time to feel blue for myself.
But I do remember taking 31 pretty hard.
And as I recall, 44 was no walk in the park.....But then...I began to WALK IN THE PARK....and so...45 doesnt feel too bad.
I actually feel pretty good.
Even though, my goal for my birthday was to have lost 10 pounds for the month. Not a big number to ask for....and while at one point, I had actually reached that goal, with time to spare.
The last week, the scale has inched its way back up and so now with only one day left, I have missed the goal by about a pound and a half.
But I am not looking at it as I came up short, I am looking at it as I lost 8 lbs.
And I am well aware its time to really amp up my workouts. I have this friend who is an ex-green beret and I have been begging him to come work with me, to teach me some good hard core CORE and muscle toning exercises.
He wont do it. I guess he knows I am really not physically at that point and I guess he doenst want to see me kill over. haha....
But he says he can give me some to try, to learn on my own.
What would be so freakin awesome, would be if I woke up and my big fat flubby lubby wubby stomach was flat......ah, it is my birthday and I should get to have one nice moment of unreality.
So, 45 isnt a sad number, or a bad number its just a number.
Now, 45 pounds is a great number and I only have about 9 more to go to make that number a reality....maybe that will be my goal for October.
