41 backbends

Today I turned 41. I am the healthiest and probably the happiest I have ever been in my entire 41 years of living. My day will be spent teaching a cycling class this morning, then some sort of yummy lunch, followed by a massage and then dinner out with Curt and friends at our favorite restaurant, […]


Being 40 is awesome

Friends, today I turned 40. I have no issues with being 40. In fact, I am excited about it. I have looked forward to this day for many years. I have always looked much younger than I actually am. So I like shocking people with my true age. Just the other day someone told me […]


Please say thank you

Thank you for reading my blog. Please keep reading it. Simple manners are so easy and quite appreciated. This weekend I have the task of writing thank-you notes for my birthday gifts. It used to be a joke with friends that within a week of my birthday a thank-you card would arrive. I am not […]


Longing for regular, healthy routine

So the Go Fit Girl! October Monthly Challenge has been really tough for me. (Click here to take you to the Facebook event.) I am having a hard time for a variety of reasons: birthday; Oakland A’s playoff games; many dinners eating out; travel; Charlotte; work conference where vendors and law firms wine and dine. […]


Having an unhealthy good time

Please note: This post was meant to go up last night. But I was having some technical difficulties getting my photos. So you get it this morning. I used to be a very unhealthy person. Now I consider myself fairly healthy. The past couple of weeks I have ditched the healthy lifestyle because of travel, […]


Birthday card humor

Tonight’s post will be brief as I am doing laundry and packing for a business trip later this week. If the A’s win tonight I will likely be going to Game 5 tomorrow, which is supposed to be my night to pack. Since Game 4 is still going (and a rather exciting game), which The […]


Giving to others is the best gift

Remember when you were a little kid and you would be so excited about your birthday? As an adult I wait for that feeling and well, it doesn’t happen. I guess that is just part of getting older. Don’t get me wrong, I have no issues with getting older. In fact, I love it. I […]


Accountability=successful weight loss

At one point over the summer I realized I needed accountability with my food and drink intake. Even though I worked out almost every day I wasn’t monitoring my food intake and I wasn’t losing weight even though I wanted to get back to my goal weight. I needed accountability with food tracking. In the […]


Health and wellness birthday gifts

For my birthday my in-laws gave me an REI gift card. I plan to use it toward a new yoga mat.I think Curt and I are going to go shopping this weekend. I also got some cash from Grandma so that will go toward the yoga mat or a yoga block/brick. (Before each yoga class […]


It’s my birthday … not really … party anyway

Years ago I was doing a puzzle with my youngest nephew. He was and is awesome at puzzles especially at the age he was, which I think was 4 or 5. He got a difficult piece in an adult puzzle and I kinda sang, Go, Jackson. It’s your birthday. He looked at me and said, […]
