Birthday time

We are back from vacation - we've been back almost a week. But I haven't been able to get back on track. My weight is hovering around 201 - today it was down a little, but I think it was my pre-TOM dip.

Last Thursday was my husband's birthday but the celebrations were drawn out from Wednesday through Monday when we finished the ice cream and cake. And my daughter's 5th birthday is Sunday but her party is on Saturday. But my hope and desire is to start C25K again on Monday. My dream is to do a Turkey Trot on Thanksgiving this year. I know I won't be able to finish C25K in the alloted 9 weeks, plus some extra weeks to practice running outside, I think I should be in fine shape. My birthday is in 2 weeks - I am hoping to buy myself a new pair of sneakers as a gift.

I've decided to eliminate my normal Lean Cuisine pizza from my lunch - it is 10 PointsPlus, which is too "expensive" from a Points perspective, and too expensive from a $ perspective, plus they stopped making my favorite kind which was only 9 points. So I decided I am going to try to actually make my lunch. A lot more time consuming, but necessary.

With the preparation of starting to work out again, I need to start going to bed earlier again. I need to get my husband in the habit as well - when he was hurt with his emergency foot surgery, he was recuperating in bed. But now he is studying a lot, but still has been studying in bed. I need to kick him out so I can go to sleep at 10:30. Then hopefully it will be a habit again when the new TV season starts in 6 weeks, so I won't stay up watching tv.

I see good on the horizon. I am definitely not where I planned on being in August of 2011 (originally my "blog" name as Fit by 41). No, I am not changing it to 'Fit by 42' - way too much pressure. Just sometime in my 40s is okay :) Though my 25 year high school reunion is in 2 years so that would be good!
