It was a good day as 62nd birthdays go. I got up in time to do all my exercises.
Breakfast was OJ and a banana/blueberry/spinach smoothie. Break was my next to last organic orange.
Interspersed throughout the day, I got a gift from my staff, phone calls from my sons and oldest sister, e-cards from two of my sisters and my daughter, and paper cards from two other sisters. I also talked to one of my daughters-in-law and one of my granddaughters.
For most of my birthdays since my husband hasn’t been around, I have been depressed but it was different this year. My state of mind is much better. I can’t say that I was overjoyed not to be able to see family but I haven’t shed any tears, either. I’ve thought about my mother a lot today and how she used to try to make it a special day for me. And if I don’t get off that subject, I will be sitting here in a puddle.
When I got home, I had OJ and strawberries but not together. I think the berries would have been better blended up in the OJ, though. Then I had a small bowl of tomatoes and they were good. Later, I blended up some really raw cashews with some lemon, onion powder, sea salt, and water and had that with some sugar snap peas and green Vidalia onion.
I’m not going to have time to log my food on fitday tonight. I’ll do that tomorrow.
My daughter thought that I should take today off work and relax. I did nod to the day being different by not doing my time on the house for today.
Frederic has another teleseminar coming up Thursday night and I’m going to try to make that one. He’s not sure he will record it so if I’m going to hear it, I’ll have to make the effort.
Better get ready for bed. I’m older now, you know, so I need my sleep.
