No, this is not my body. Not yet.
Today I celebrate my 45th birthday -- happily. On balance, things are good. Good health, good friends, good job, and 41.1 lbs lighter than I was 4 months ago.
Last time my waist was this size, I was 36 years old. Almost a decade ago. I know this because for a long time, my waist was about the size of my age...30, 32, 34, 36, 38, 40, 42....Each couple of new years would see a couple more inches around the waistline. Not this year.
Have a little something sweet in my honor today, and here's to another year of great things!
Breakfast - 2 cups of coffee. Flax Oil Gel Tab
Lunch - Was taken out by co-workers to Damon's. I ordered the spinach salad because it sounded like the healthiest thing on the menu, but it was covered in bacon, blue cheese and goo. Screw it. It's my birthday. I ate it. And a piece of bread, too.
Dinner - Green tint? Must be Pier W! A delicious antipasto pizza: prosciutto, caramelized onions, grilled peppers, pepperoni and mozarella. I ate 2/3rds of this pizza.
Snack - Nothing! No cake! Can one have a birthday without cake?! Yes, it's possible.
UPDATE: Forgot to mention that my dear friends Zak, Dan, Michael and Javier decorated my cube at work with 1800 Mary Jane candies (my favorite). I ate about 10 of them today. (They're 30 calories each, fwiw.)
