Happy Birthday to Me!

Today is October 7, and I'm like, super stinking fat now.

I am also super stinking old.

These things are not un-related.

Yesterday was my 29th birthday, or, I suppose, we can call it my 29th birthday Version 1.0.  I'm reserving the right to celebrate version 2.0 next year.

The day before my 29th birthday, my itty bitty little girl turned 3.  Terrifying.  Now she is a grown up woman-child who got mad at me the other day and told me to "Stick it in my shell" because she watches Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and apparently, they have given some new words to her tiny tiny rage.

Here is us at the zoo yesterday, celebrating our lives:

Best Friends <3

I promise the kids weren't as cranky all day as they look right here.

Tiny Lil' Momma's boy :-D

So precious... I, I might just pass out.

We also fed the giraffe (a MUST DO experience for each zoo trip, it seems, even after our trip from May when the giraffe sneezed on my daughter and sent her into a blind state of panic), and got to check out the new Sea Lion Cove, which was very beautiful but also very lacking in sea lions.

Hey look, there's one over there to the... no, that's a rock.
Anyway, I'm in the 144-145 range, and seeing as I had been all the way down to 141.6 (you're impressed, I know), I feel super chubbso right now, and on top of being outrageously busy and celebratory-y, feeling heavier makes me not want to blog here.  This was a planned diet-break, so it's nothing to freak out about.  And as of today, it's diet time again.  Woo hoo!!! Back on that wagon!


  1. Happy Birthday! And, what a cute family you have!

  2. Happy birthday to you! You have a beautiful family!! And the weight is just water weight I'm sure, just think about how you're still smaller than you were before, so the difference of a couple pounds is nothing in comparison. It'll come right back off. I'm so jealous of your trip to the zoo, I can't wait until my baby is old enough to enjoy something like that!!

  3. Happy birthday, old lady!! Couldn't resist. Your kids are absolutely adoooorable!!

  4. Thanks all, we had an AWESOME time. Also: OUCH for the Old Lady comment ;-) It seems that even though I gained like, 3 pounds in 3 days when I first went off my diet (almost a week and a half ago), but since then I've maintained that same weight. I'm guessing this is just the "plateau" my body felt comfortable with, but as of yesterday, I'm finally back on the weight loss train!

  5. I just wanted to give you a little perspective - from a fellow 29yo mom. Treasure you're super skinny sexy body, the one you have TODAY!
    Two years ago I got down to 144, and I felt FAT! I knew I had about 15lbs to lose before I hit goal. I didn't take one day to look in the mirror and enjoy- be proud - of the 20 lbs I'd lost! I never felt thin. I still had flaws.
    Fast forward two years, today, I really am fat - on the border of obese! - at 183lbs. What the heck did I do to myself! WTF?! But I'm running again, and I know that when I hit 150, I'll take a look in the mirror, and enjoy it fully. I'll still be chasing 130, but I will not take a 150lb body for granted, ever again!!! Love it girl!
    PS. Can I do 29 version 2.0 too?

    1. I know where you're coming from. I'm not near goal yet, but when I look in the mirror these days, I see "me" again. Not the almost 200 pound fat suit I'd be wearing for years there :-) I'm enjoying getting to recognizing my own reflection again! Good luck lady, we can do this! And we can be 29 however the heck long we want to ;-)
