Oh the cake. The cake, the cake, the cake.
Jude’s birthday cake is a big part of my life right now. Like, should I have some? Every time I walk by it? Well, at least I need to think about it. And swipes of frosting off the edge, as well as the less tasty stale crumbs that rest around the perimeter- those don’t have a significant enough caloric impact to worry.
This is what I’m dealing with:
It was a Skylanders party, and the cake? Excellent. Tasty. Moist. Delicious. I can tell you from personal experience.
But what I really want to talk about is not the cake, but the celebration of today! We ran today, Bradley and I! It was short- just two miles- but we actually went out in the glorious sunshine and ran. It felt good to get out and just do it. My lungs were burning but my endurance held and we weren’t even that slow. Then, two hours later, I met one of my favorite people in the world, Hannah who I used to work with before she went on maternity leave forever, and walked all over Edmonds with her while my daughter and her friend were at an artsy birthday party. It was so fun to laugh and walk with her. When we parted, we decided to meet up to move together at least once a month. I’m totally game for that. :).
It felt really good to follow through with my goals starting on day one of this week. I’m already feeling stronger. It’s funny how a little confidence can change my entire outlook on how I’m feeling about things. Cheers for a great week!>
