What a nice day it was Saturday! Here is a picture of the card Jim gave me, with a photo of a Chocolate Lab puppy. Inside it said:
"Nothing like a
to celebrate your birthday.
Hope your day is sweet!"
And he included a piece of sugar-free chocolate covered toffee.
Did you see my birthday tat??!! Got it at the Sharpie Tattoo Parlor. ;-)
And here is the birthday present I bought for myself, a GymBoss timer. I've been struggling to keep track of the dual timings needed for doing Tabata type exercises on my rebounder. Research has shown that type of interval exercise is super effective, getting superior results in a shorter amount of time.
Here's a LINK, for the curious. About halfway down it explains why Tabata is actually superior to High Intensity Interval Training. Not that MY levels of anything are that intense, yet. But, it gives me a goal. :-)
We enjoyed watching a DVD movie together, and had pizza made by Papa Murphy that is called a DeLite version. They make a super thin crispy crust, and that cuts out a bazillion calories and carbs. Well, and the fact that I didn't EAT the whole thing myself, like in my past! LOL! We stuck to 2 very thin pieces each, and had sugar-free pie for dessert. Very yummy, and enough.
Just to cover myself, since it WAS a tastey pizza... I told Jim I would not eat any more after he went to sleep (my old pattern). I guess I didn't want to even risk it! And speaking it out loud in a promise felt "safe", ya know??
Some day, I expect to reach the place where I will know, 1000 percent, that there is no way I would sneak back and eat more. Some day...
