Every year I write a blog post on my birthday, have done so since 2003, and sometimes they are full of hope and life and excitment, other times they are filled with dread and despair.
This year is kind of just meh for me….the only real goal I have is to lose weight…this is going to be the year I put everything I have into it. Every ounce of motivation, passion and hope. I am funnelling it all into losing weight.
I don’t really feel as if I am having a birthday, perhaps I just don’t really care much about turning 33…am I 33 already? Surely it is 32? oops, yup it is 32 😀 NICE…I added a year onto my age….that’s just WRONG!!!
I am going to be getting my bike L’s soon, as I still have a “want” to ride. I want to lose enough weight that I can buy a nice bike and not feel huge on it and I want to be able to buy leathers that don’t make me look like the S & M version of the Stay puft Marshmallow man….All in good time of course 🙂
So to sum up my last year, I left MLC (finally), I started my degree (finally), we moved to Kyneton, we got back into our religious practices, my mother finally married the man of her dreams and got married, Hubby got some of the best birthday presents this year for his birthday, we bought a new VW and got rid of the troubled mini, we finally got rid of the old couch when it collpased, we have avoided getting any new credit cards, we have stayed on top of our bills (although no savings thanks to my pay cut), we started eating better (then kind of stopped), I lost 10kgs over Xmas with some hard work and training.
Of all these things, the only thing I am disappointed in is my lack of weight loss. I wanted this last year to be the year when I could look back and admire my 70kg weight loss. Looks like this will be that year instead, so I am going to push myself and ensure it happens this year!! Next birthday I want to be able to brag and brag and brag!! 😀 Consider yourself warned.
I will be ensuring I update my weight loss/exercise blog – ponderosity.wordpress.com a fair bit more and I may add more than just my exercise for the night on there, such as PCOS weightloss challenge (which I missed this time round – so will start in August officially, and this week unofficially), food and other stuff.
Happy Birthday Onyxiia.
