Nine days in already? I haven't even given the new year, or new month a moment of pause! I like to reflect on things- I'm a reflecting kind of person. But no! Flying right by it is.
I'm a contemplative soul, and I like to sit back in big chair and consider new beginnings. (Especially in big leopard chairs.) But here I am just noticing that it's a new year, a new month and that my birthday is only ONE WEEK away! Yikes! That means I should be properly preparing for my "Birthday Week", but I haven't really given it a second thought. Time to call in the forces and start some planning! Speaking of birthdays though, we celebrated my beautiful mother's 56th birthday on the 1st. Mellow dinner at my house followed by cake...
Otherwise it's been work, work, work along with meetings and trainings for work. And when I'm not at work I'm working out. My mom insisted on buying me new sneakers after I wore the same ones for the last 12 years! No idea how they didn't crumble off my feet. She was sick of looking at them. (FYI: I tend to never buy new shoes until they disintegrate.) So along with some serious workouts at the gym I've been eating well and keeping on the right track. Been feeling way better these last 3 months after cutting out 95% of sugar and most carbs.
And can you believe I watched the Biggest Loser for the first time ever the other night when the season premiered (I NEVER watch TV but happened to catch it when changing off the DVD setting that night) and the VERY NEXT DAY at the gym saw a guy fall off the treadmill next to me just like the guy in the show did!? So weird. I never saw anyone crash off a treadmill in my life and then I see it the day after the guy on the show does it! Crazy!
Ok, well enough of that random talk...time to get back to the day before it's over! Hopefully I will be back soon with something creative I've done....can't guarantee it though!
