Tomorrow I will be 34. Birthdays for some people are such a drag, another year older, aging blablabla.. To me it's totally a celebration, it always has been. In my family growing up my parents would always ask what I wanted for dinner. Sometimes they would cook it, or we would go out. My response as a child 90% of the time was lobster! Making me feel so special that day was/is memorable. Also, I loved my birthday being so close to Christmas.. Whatever Santa didn't bring I asked for (still do). As a parent I will always make their day so special.
Now as an adult I look back on all the birthday partying that took place. Probably from 20-30. Where are we getting a table in NYC ?!!! Oh my how things have changed. Not that I wouldn't love doing that, but a nice quite family dinner is a bit more my speed. Plus 34 is such a weird number.
I want to give a lot of credit to my love of #crossfit for being so confident in my age. I am definitely new to the brand, and I don't think I will ever leave. I've been exercising since I'm 20, regularly. It has been a part of my lifestyle and that will never change. I take rest days,I eat what I want, I drink. I have done every kind of activity you name it... but something about Crossfit has made me more excited than ever before (I get up at 4:15 am) I better love it. I love that I did it until I was 29 weeks pregnant. I was back after 8 weeks of having a cesarean birth! The community is awesome, and it feels good to feel good.
Shoutout to an amazing Coach! #bemorecapable
Reflecting on this Birthday eve has been really nice. I'll tell you one thing, I'm exactly where I want to be for my age. I've never felt better in my life. I thought getting older was suppose to be harder, and it's a lot easier than I ever imagined. Working on my mental health, and physical body I think is what got me to this beautiful place in life.
Cheers to 34, and being happy, and healthy. This year is going to be even more amazing than last :)
