2nd Day of Summer

I had a great birthday! Thank you for all the birthday wishes! I felt like a rock star from all the attention and love! I got flowers in the morning from Danielle and then Dave got me a dozen long stem roses from the same florist. One of our friends opened a floral shop recently so this is the first I have seen of her arrangements. I am impressed :) I have both bouquets at work since it is sweltering hot at home. We do NOT have A/C - just fans so it is rather stuffy. Plus I am here the majority of the time anyways so now everyone can enjoy them.

Flowers from Dave :)

Dave, my mom and I went to the Cheesecake Factory as planned. I was still full from lunch so I decided just to have a small salad and edamame and saved my calories for CHEESECAKE. I had 3 bites and a big strawberry and that was it. I shared it with mom and Dave and I was not overly stuffed like I have in the past. I actually peeked at the scale and it was a good number so keeping fingers crossed.

I recently tried this Vanilla Chai Tea from Bolthouse Farms and it was dynamite!  I have tried other soy beverages and was not particularly fond of them but this was great. This is what their web page said: Always on the go? Our Perfectly Protein® Vanilla Chai Tea will is the perfect pick-me-up. This nutritious beverage is packed with 19 grams of heart healthy soy protein (in every 450mL bottle) with a smooth vanilla chai flavor unlike anything you've tried. If you’re looking to add more vitamins to your diet, drinking Vanilla Chai Tea will also give you the added benefit of Vitamins C, B6 and B12, just to name a few.

To continue with the pampering I have been doing lately, I am going to get a Champagne Peel tonight. This is what it said on their website. Champagne Peel Facial -- The gentle nature of the champagne enzyme combined with the effective exfoliation makes this facial ideal for sensitive, congested, dull, and easily offended skin. It lasts for an hour.  It is usually $120 but I got it for $49!  I am going right after work and hope to be home by 7:00. I want to get out on my bike or walk or SOMETHING. I really want to have a loss this week and want to do what I can to make that happen. Hope you guys are having a good week! Until next time...
