Birthday Weekend / Self Care

Posted by Susan on January 3, 2009


This weekend is my annual Birthday Weekend. I gift it to myseld every year. This year it works out as 4 dayer. This year I ended up with a cold for birthday weekend…..Yahoo ! (NOT!) Oh well…..what can you do?

I decided to spend the day in bed and try to sleep it off. I gathered supplies, magazines, books , meds, tea, TV remote, phone………..I ended up sleeping a good 5 hours and plan on taking a shower , eating dinner and crawling right back into bed.

I find rest to always be the best way to heal so when I feel crappy I try to sleep as much as I can. I hope tomorrow I will feel better so I can resume my weekend and have some fun.

The plan is kind of fuzzy so far. I deinately want to see a movie, and go out to dinner, but other than that nothing is planned. This is the big 45 and I have so many mixed feelings about it. I just can’t seem to wrap my brain around that number. I don’t know where time went and I definately don’t feel that number….but what should it feel like anyway? I am sort of half depressed and half determined not to let it get to me……weird huh?

Anyway I am going to have a good weekend regardless. Monday is my first “offical” TT workout and I am excited for that. We also got food shopping in this morning before I set up camp in the bedroom. I bought all kinds of good things and wrote out a new menu for the week too.

So aside from a few sniffles, all is well….

A New Day, A New Year

Posted by Susan on January 1, 2009

The first day of the 2009 and I have what has been brewing now since the day after Christmas………….a cold. Oh well, I am just resting today, staying warm. I am not using it as an excuse to eat badly though. I am eating my 6 small meals and trying to keep them as clean as I can. I need to go food shopping tomorrow so I am running low on stuff.

I plan to “Officialy” start TT on Sunday, I know with enough rest and meds I will be fine by then. For today I am just relaxing , drinking tea, catch up on some reading and just get this cold out of my system.

I am looking forward to working out hard next week though, and getting to work on accomplishing some of my many many goals for 2009 !
