Yesterday I did 30 Sit-Ups a row. :D And the best part is I'm not sore today! :) I also did 20 push-ups. I'm working on doing some reps every evening, and that's been very good for my stomach muscles and biceps. :) I've also been riding the excercise bike faithfully and continuing my diet, which I now prefer to call my 'lifestyle'. :)


Hi everyone! :)

Just a quick update to let you know that so far I'm having a wonderful birthday! I got several sweet e-cards, birthday cards, and hugs from loving family members. :) Mama made French toast for breakfast (yum!) and we're going to make a strawberry-vanilla checkerboard cake possibly around noon. :) Hopefully, if the weather cooperates, we'll be heading up to play Ultimate Frisbee with our home-church group - such nice people! :) I hope it doesn't rain!! It's supposed to be "Stormy with large hail". ACK! Not very good frisbee weather! :(

Thank you for all the sweet comments! :) You're all so wonderful. :)


  1. Hehe, that is awesome!! I seriously need some exercise...
    Happy 18th Birthday Julia!! =D God bless you!


  2. HAPPY BIRTHDAY Dear Julia! So glad your day is off to a wonderful start! :)

    I love doing situps! I think I can get about 50 in one set! Can't do pushups tho... :P

    HUGS and LOVES!

  3. Hey, Julia! That's awesome!
    I'm going to start excercising again once I'm well *coughsniff*
    I was looking through an Athleta catalogue (everything in there is cute! Just not all of it's modest
    :( ) But anyway, I was like "I want to be in shape like THAT woman!" I don't like the bodybuilder look for girls, but I like the muscular but not anorexic look. :)

  4. Breakfast sounds delicious! French Toast is one of my favourites!
    Happy Birthday!
    I hope you have a fabulous day!


  5. Have a happy, happy, happy, happy, happy, happy, happy, happy, happy, happy, happy, Happy Birthday!!!!!!

    I hope that your year is wonderful through and through!
