So, I loved my birthday.
-The Dunkin iced coffee was actually on Monday (the day before my birthday), but I pulled the sticker off and won a free one! I counted that as an early birthday gift haha.
-One of the birthday gifts my boyfriend got me was a year’s subscription to Runner’s World magazine! The issues pictured are for November and December. I was so shocked and thought it was a really creative and wonderful gift idea. Running is my favorite source of exercise and I love that magazine :’)
-Speaking of running, I went to the gym and had an amazing birthday work out! I pushed myself so hard on the treadmill. I felt so good after that work out. I was head to toe drenched in sweat (as pictured), and I just felt a sense of accomplishment afterward. It was much needed.
-I didn’t have work on my birthday, but I did have class so I went to school and then my boyfriend took me out to dinner!
-We went to my favorite place to eat, and I got the salmon salad. It was delish! I also got a side of sweet potato fries (not pictured) and usually they give you a small side of them, but the waiter brought me out a huge basket hahaha. Needless to say, I have about 5-6 servings of sweet potato fries in my fridge right now. I ain’t mad.
-We then went out for dessert and got frozen yogurt. I got a mix of coconut flavor and snickerdoodle with sugar-free chocolate chips and granola. It definitely hit the spot!
It’s funny, we got to the frozen yogurt place and they were having a special where you get your yogurt, weigh it and pay for it, then after you pay for it go get as many unlimited toppings as you want. Usually you put the toppings on and then pay, but that day in particular it was all unlimited toppings haha. I didn’t really take advantage of this, but my boyfriend sure did haha.
Funny how I won a free iced coffee, got a huge basket full of sweet potato fries, and free unlimited toppings all during my birthday haha.
I also love how I still ate healthy AND worked out on my birthday. It’s one of the many reasons I know I’ve made this a lifestyle change. I enjoy working out. I love the food I eat. If I didn’t, I would use my birthday as an “excuse” to take a day off from working out or go pig out on junk. And yet, effortlessly, I did the opposite.
Overall, my birthday was just so good. I wasn’t expecting anything special at all this year. I was really just going to treat it as any other day, but it turned out to be both productive and fun. I felt really loved and it was hands down one of the best birthdays I’ve ever had.
