I wanted to wish all my readers a Happy 4th of July. July is probably my favorite month – it’s my birthday month and I think that has something to do with it. I also love the hot weather – so long as I can sleep in air conditioning.
The fact that the holiday is midweek and I am working this week will help me with eating more of the right things. No big parties to go to, just a small cookout here and I can control the food. I did splurge on some ribs that are marinating, but otherwise it will be steak and a grilled caesar salad.
I started this blog at the end of July last year, which means I am approaching a year. While I haven’t had too much success in weight loss yet, I believe that I am in a much better place than I was a year ago. I’m working out regularly; once a week with a trainer who kicks my butt each time. I am eating much better and still enjoying my life and not feeling like I am missing out. I certainly feel balanced – much more so than a year ago.
I am looking forward to the next year of Phat50chick because I feel that I’m heading in the right direction. So Happy Birthday to our Nation. Enjoy your time with friends and family and count your blessing.
