Christmas is in just 3 days and it feels surreal. Somehow when you’re sick it’s like time stops. Ya know? I missed 2 weeks of running around etc. and I can’t believe the end of the year is fast approaching. I’m not ready!
It snowed here in the burbs – just a little dusting and frankly – I’m fine with that amount of snow. 🙂
I don’t ski or snowshoe or snowboard…so really snow is just a hindrance of fun plans and a pain in the ass to drive in. Of course, driving my little faux-sportscar in New England is my own fault but, I digress!
I am clear of coughing and think it’s safe to say I’m not sick anymore. I have a bit of wheezing here and there; but I’m 10000% better from where I was. Woo!
I’m looking forward to getting back to the gym tomorrow and fully prepared for it to hurt like HELL. But, no pain no gain I guess!
During the time I’ve been sick I haven’t been exercising like I mentioned – but I also haven’t been eating badly. No snacks (just not hungry), no coffee and no alcohol. So, I’m feeling good. I’m also noticing that my “fat jeans” are too big – even straight from the dryer they are baggy. Yes! So, I’m confident that I have lost weight this month. I guess getting sick was a weird blessing in disguise I missed out on parties….but I avoided eating foods I might have cheated on!
I found an entry in my LiveJournal from this time last year – and I said “God I wish I could just get a handle on my eating and exercise again in 2010. I feel so hopeless!”.
I’m happy to say I defintely don’t feel hopeless anymore! I might not have hit my goal for the year (100 pounds) – but since I’ve been actively working at this for 6-7 months…I’m OK with that. I defintely lost at least 80 pounds and that rocks! I rejoined the gym. I forgave myself for quitting my job and failing at a big move. I focused on my dancing, and actually performed 9 times this year! I traveled. I met new friends and reconnected with old ones – overall I’d call 2010 a success. I think I’ve grown as a person and I’m ready to take on the challenges 2011 brings!
Oh I’m still crafting my perfect resolutions so I’m not ready to post them yet – but soon! I also want to do this exercise I saw on my friend Pamela’s blog.
A letter to your future self – and one to your past self. It sounds like a great idea, right?! 🙂
