Happy December, you little darlings!
While November was a haitus month for the blog, there was no shortage of social networking updates – which begs the question, do you LIKE me? I mean, really LIKE me? Enough to FOLLOW me? Well, then click away! Cause if you haven’t already you’ve been missing out! I just finished my 2nd annual #GratitudeProject where I took some time dig deep (or not so much) daily to acknowledge how thankful I am for all the blessings, seemingly small or big, which I have been graced with in my life. Not that one should restrict practicing gratitude to only one month, but I think you get my drift.
It’s been a crazy month, hell – it’s been a crazy year! But the good news is this: I have lost about 10lbs since this emotionally low post back in mid-October.
As of this morning’s post-Spin weigh-in, I’m down to 207.8. And I gotta tell you, I really feel like I’ve turned the corner in so many ways. I just got a promotion to a new team at the cube farm, and I could hardly be happier. (Let’s get real. Winning the lotto would be pretty sweet, but I’m talking about what’s realistic and within my control.) This means a schedule change, and more importantly, a shift in attitude and stress levels. Make no mistake, I will have plenty of stress at the new spot but it will be different. I could go on, but I won’t. I’m moving forward, and that’s what counts.
More importantly, I’m MOVING! I’ve been hitting the gym so much since the end of October and I credit two things for the happy influence: Jillian Michaels and Digifit. Most of you likely know who Jillian Michaels is, but I’ll tell you a little story about how I made her sit on my shoulder and whisper sweet nothings in my ear very shortly. I’ll also tell you about Digifit, a heart-rate monitor and top-notch fitness gadget that I’d had my eye on for a while and finally took the plunge. If you LIKE or FOLLOW me, you probably know this already.
Good stuff, you guys.
Really, really good stuff.
So here we are, December 1 of a crazy rollercoaster year and I am blissing out with life and my place in the Universe. I’m challenging myself to lose 10 lbs this month. I want to get under 200 – more specifically to 197 – by 2013. And I know I can do this.
Who am I to disagree?
Hold your head up. Keep your head up.
