Today I am 31

Today is my birthday and I am in awe by how zen I feel right now. I started this blog a few months before my 30th birthday and wow how far I have come. I just went back and read the post I wrote on my birthday last year.

Some of the differences from that post to me now...

Last year I wrote "So my birthday gift to myself, Im going to go run 30 min" - wow how far I have come! Now Im in marathon training. Tomorrow I have a 17 mile run "booked" :)

This is a picture of me this time last year...

I recently gave those pants away and donated the shirt because it was falling off of me. Im 28 lbs lighter then I was in this pic. For some reason I cant seem to find a recent pic but will add one soon - promise! See that double chin? GONE!
Regardless of recent feelings of blah and self pity - I am in the best place I have been in a long time. I am so excited about this next coming year. I am healthier now then I have been in years and years and that is just going to continue. Things at home are really good right now - my wonderful husband and I are in a good place. I have an amazing 4 year old. I am lucky to love my job. I am at peace and overall very happy.

This next year brings exciting new adventures. I will be running my first marathon next month! We hope to add to our family and this time next year be a family of four, not three. I hope to grow and advance in my role at work. I plan to continue to make myself a healthier happier person - inside and out.
