Finished my Trick or Treating night with the anticipation of my 44th year. Thought about my Mom as she had just finished the Halloween rounds with my 3 older sisters some short 44 years ago and then took a casual drive to the hospital to have me. I arrived sometime early on the 1st of November - for sure not a trick, more of a treat for many!! I really do try not to tell my age or even say my age out loud, but sometimes you just have to be honest and put it out there.
In celebration of my 44th year, I had a bit of inspiration from a college friend who is a personal trainer in the Seattle area, so decided to start my day with:
- 44 Minutes of a Punching Bag Workout....
- 44 Arm Curls
- 44 Overhead Arm Lifts
- 44 Front Arm Lifts
- 44 Side Arm Lifts
- 44 Calf Lifts
- 44 Push ups
- 44 Balance Ball Stomach Curls (OK, sit ups, but used the balance ball as a "helper" today)
- 44 Leg Lunges
Therefore, in this, my 44th year of my life, I WILL lose 44 more pounds!!!
For the month of November I will work out each day for 44 minutes (including Thanksgiving - wonder which 5K run/walk I will do this year).
Once a week I will take 44 minutes of quiet time for myself - think, dream, breath, just relax - no TV, no distractions, can walk during that time, but walk on my own - this will be for me.
Another year has come and gone for me!!! I have a good plan and ready for another 44 years. How will you celebrate your birthday this coming year???
