It was a VERY indulgent weekend. Gifts, cards, food, spirits, wine and cigars…uuurgh I paid for it yesterday. I had a fabulous birthday thanks to the generosity of friends and family, but now it’s time to begin my 44th year with some healthier choices. I just signed up for the Atlanta Half Marathon on Thanksgiving Day. I’ve done it a couple of times before and it is great fun, a lovely way to earn your Thanksgiving dinner. Only problem is 13 miles seems an awfully long way right now. I need to get my training plan written – oh and then actually execute the plan 🙂 I have a while to contemplate it, before I start adding the miles to my little 2 mile jog with the dog.
My birthday started with a run – I was well impressed! Then I was drinking prosecco and eating red velvet cake by 10.30am! We headed out for lunch to one of our favorite spots – Nuevo Laredo – where I ate way too much and was surprised with a birthday shot. Yep you read right – no cupcakes here – a shot of tequila with a cherry on top at 2pm. I had to drink it all in one while the rest of the restaurant sang Happy Birthday. Fun times…
The Yazmines are high but really comfortable given the block heel.
Today we’re being covered by cloud and it really feels quite Fall like here.
I’m off out with the girls tonight to continue some celebrations – yeah that health kick might wait till tomorrow.
