Okay here are just a few of the things I will and won’t do today…
Work out – this will enter my mind at least 14.3 x’s today – But I am guessing after buying a white chocolate mocha (iced) this will not happen. I totally blame my child for this – he ASKED for a chocolate milk after preschool drop off…what was I to do?
Laundry – this will be something I do today/everyday – but today… probably won’t finish because, I will get side tracked with thinking about not doing exercise, and decide to pluck my eyebrows, research others blogs, someone will cry, wash my bike (that I don’t own)… you know any excuse. PLUS last night, I pulled T’s soccer shorts from the dryer and they were damp (slightly more than damp). He went to soccer but before he left “BEST shorts Ever mom – in 80 degrees, they are damp and cool!” so – hence, why finish this load either? It is going to be 80 again. I figure that if my kids smell like mildew – well? They will just have to stick together since no one else will play with them.
Talk to the people I should and firm up dates – ie: dentist for my rotting teeth, summer plans etc…well this will not happen because a) it is nice out. And b) when I open my calendar on my computer – I will no doubt end up looking up things that matter like how to get firm without exercise, how to redecorate my house for 8 dollars…you know the important things at the moment.
Make a list for dinners this week – this won’t happen because well…just don’t feel like it…and if it does it will be a list of the healthiest food ever and of course I am already drinking a mocha…so I have blown the healthy aspect today. I should just start again tomorrow.
SO…now that I have shared a small portion of my NOT do’s off my list…and proscranited by writing this blog…what I will do is tell you –
THAT my BIRTHDAY is in 76 days and I will be 40. (July 27th)
Why is this great? Well, let me tell you – anyone that knew/knows me knows that my past was no indication of where I would be today. (Other then my great parents who did not sell me, but I am sure tried to). They also know that I think birthday are the BEES kNeEs. That I ALWAYS do a count down and I am behind this year. That I thought 2010 would be the year of Jen – not so much. (but 2011 has promise.) I think that 40 is going to be the new 20 for me. The confidence, the ME in ME, the fitness (heck Oprah did not start working out til ? 50, so she said or was it 40? – (and yes I know what she looks like today) but still give me a chance to start.
WhEw the way I see it – telling you my birthday was a HUGE check off the ol’ list today! Enjoy your day…and PLEASE tell me you’re doing something unhealthy too 🙂
