I did not eat well on the trip. I had glimpses of healthy eating, but I also have vague remembrances of eating 2 slices of double chocolate birthday cake. But really, it wasn't the eating (a lot of the time I didn't eat enough), it was the tons of alcohol that went through my body over 3 days. I kicked my ass. Oh Lord, did it kick my ass. I got home from the trip about 7 last night and went straight to bed. I didn't get up until noon today. I slept nearly straight through to 7 this morning and got the boys off to school. One I got back home, I went right to bed again. I slept for a while, and then just laid there like I'd been hit by a truck. I'm finally up and showered (you can probably appreciate that even through the computer screen. I feel great now. It was a fun few days, but it's so good to get back to reality.
So, I've apparently changed since turning 40. It's weird. Such a quick turnaround. This is what people heard from me the past 21 years when trying to buy me a shot, "Please don't. I don't drink hard alcohol. No, really. If you buy it, I'll seriously give it away." After 40, this is what they hear, "Fuck yeah! What kind? I don't care. Surprise me."
Turning 40, has also made me less of a germaphobe. Oh wait, maybe that was alcohol related.
And last but not least, although I've always known that I have the most amazing set of friends, in my 40's this knowledge has touched my heart in a way I didn't know possible. I feel blessed beyond compare, and I never want to forget this feeling of overall love. "Friends make the world go 'round." Oh shit, who said that? Apparently turning 40, also makes you totally gay.
So, here I am back on track. I'm scared shitless for the weigh in on Wed., but it's also not the end of the road. This is just the first 6 weeks. The next 6 will be even better.
