Happy Valentine's Day to each of you! I hope all of you had as good of a day as I did! Despite still not feeling the greatest, I wasn't about to call in sick on my first day in my new job. Still with the same company, just a different role. I like change. And, I like new experiences. And, given the changes I have made over the last year, a change in my job seemed only appropriate.
I came home to a "heart" healthy meal that Lori had prepared. No dining out tonight. Lori wanted pizza Saturday night and because I was intent on getting back on the food wagon today, I made a deal with her to have our Valentine's Day exception on Saturday. It was good. But, tonight's meal was far healthier and I enjoyed it even more than the pizza. The meal was accompanied by a beautiful card that Lori had handmade... from her "heart". My gift was perfect as well... a "heart" rate monitor... something I had been eyeing over the last several weeks. And, despite knowing that Lori really didn't feel like going to the club, I dragged her along to exercise our "hearts" and continue to increase our chances of many more Valentine's Days to come. Sorry Lori, I know you think I am a little obsessive. But, in the end, I do all of this for the right reasons... that is the best gift I could ever imagine giving you.
Happy Valentine's Day!
