(ONE) i am taking my measurements tomorrow. i’ll post an update tomorrow. i’m curious to see what progress (if any) i’ve made. i feel better than the first of january but the scale hasn’t moved much. i’ve been consistent this week with my food and fitness. i feel super motivated and excited right now. i feel like i did a few months ago. this is a great thing. i’m even going to do a squat challenge in february. and i’m gonna kill it!
(2) i had the opportunity to spend some time with my two best friends from school, kat and holly, this past weekend. we went to a fundraising dinner for holly’s son’s soccer team. then we went to the
house mansion of one of their rich friends until 4 am. everyone was really kind and fun. i even got to play pool on the pool table from the movie, “tombstone”. (i’m told by my guy friends that this is kind of a big deal.) i haven’t done that kind of thing in forever, but i think it was needed. although i paid for it the next day, i had a freaking blast. i love those girls!
(three) paul mccartney and ringo starr reunited for a song at the grammys. it’s no secret that i’m a fan of the beatles. it was exciting to see them perform together again even if it was just for a few minutes. they don’t do that often so i just loved it. here’s a list of my other nine thoughts on the grammys from earlier this week.
(4) i spent some time with my niece, lylli, on wednesday evening. she might be the coolest kid i know. that girl cracks me up every single time i talk to her. she’s so smart. and i’m not just saying that because she’s my niece. she really is smart. and a smart ass. my favorite kind of kid. that little dork even conned me into buying one of her pet rocks. lucky for her, i have a soft spot for googly eyes so that girl got a dollar, and “george washington” came home with me.
(FIVE) the past few weeks were really difficult for me. i was dealing with a lot of emotions swirling around in me. but this week, i decided to CHOOSE to just deal with it and to quit letting it weigh me down. i have kept running this phrase though my head… you can’t change the world – you can only change yourself. and you know what? it works! i am CHOOSING to carry the load in a positive and joyful way for my own health and happiness.
