Today I'm a little bit tired.  We had a friends 30th birthday party last night and we didn't get home until 2.  Our son's aunt lives just around the corner from our friends and watched him until we came to pick him up and put him into the car to go home.  But, we had a blast.  It's strange; 30 is finally the milestone where I can see that all of us are growing up.  It's bittersweet.  I think it's time with the arrival of so many babies coming soon in our group (plus ours).  But, it sure is a landmark that means we really are adults (I know, lol, this should've hit me sooner...).  This was the first party where almost half of our friends did not have any beverages.  It wasn't an all night rager.  Crazy that it took until we hit 30 but wow how things have changed!  I have been that way for years not drinking very often but that's because I've been so focused on reaching/maintaining my weight plus it would just ruin me for the next day.  Usually I felt left out and bored since I was the outsider.  It sure wasn't the case last night.  I was so surprised!

I apologize, I didn't include on yesterdays blog that I had a few drinks because I wasn't planning on it.  I'm well down into the 130's and had a great weight loss this week.  I didn't think I wanted any excess calories that were going to ruin all my hard work.  However, a close friend of mine made a great point...mental health is just as important as physical.  I needed to let loose a little bit.  My husband was the responsible one and I got to enjoy myself.  I had had a shower during the day before the party and the only food that strayed me from my diet was that I ate a lot of salad, plain, with just dried cranberries and feta cheese.  I don't think I could eat salad plain unless there was some other kind of flavoring on it.  I've been consumed with this baby weight and eventually it can turn you into a boring, ugly person.  What my friend said really resonated with me.  It's so important to live life and love yourself.  I need to try not to be so hard on myself.  I'm really doing a great job and I couldn't ask for a more terrific baby, family, or great friends!  Hope all of you had a good weekend.  I'm looking forward to warmer weather...
