1/22/15 – Day 361: You’re One of the Most Thoughtful People I Know

One of my clients and his wife had twin girls in the last couple weeks.

The babies came at about 28 weeks, so they were premature, tiny, in the hospital, and facing a slight uphill battle.

I’m not saying this to pat me on the back. I’m saying it to pat you on the back.

My first thought was to get them dinner one night.

I would never have thought that were it not for you. At least, I don’t think I would have.

You have been an inspiring source of thoughtfulness to me. You remember birthdays and anniversaries. You consider opportunities to serve and give.

You are one of those awesome people who don’t love the spotlight but who can be depended on – to deliver what you say you’ll deliver, to be on time, and to keep your word.

Thank you for being an example to me and our children.


We’re on day 6 of #10DaysofTina for your 40th birthday. You said no party, so no party you get. But you do get a daily dose of ‘You’re awesome!’.

1/21/15 – Day 360: You Are Beautiful

I might have touched on this one before.

But today, I’d like to discuss a bit in detail some of the obvious and subtle ways that your beauty shines through.  We’re going to stick to the physical today. It’s part of the 10 Days of Tina for your 40th birthday.

Your freckles.

Your smile

Your laugh – it makes you light up.

Those legs.

Your style.

There are other things, but some of these things are best left between you and me. I gave you a card. You can read about ’em there.

I love you. You’re beautiful. You’re cute. You’re sexy. You’re incredible.


1/16/2015 – Day 355: I appreciate the encouragement…

We’re still keeping up with our calorie counting discipline as per the New Year. I’m 43 and must be more diligent with the midsection.

You are very good at giving me kudos via text when I show you how awesome I’m eating.

I send a healthy picture. You grant me encouragement

1/7/15 – Day 346: Droppin’ the Calories…

Bam. Look at you go.

Pounding down the calories while you throw around the iron.

I’m so impressed with your consistency. So proud of you for being so diligent and for being so self-disciplined.

You should get certified as a personal trainer. I think you’d be awesome! You would be able to relate to people and encourage them and love on ’em!  You’d be the perfect person to introduce someone new to training and to help them get their confidence.
