Wow, can I just say that it is nearly NOON and I just realized it is Wednesday!? Does that give you any indication of how my week is going? After yesterday’s news I woke up this morning kind of in a daze. I feel SO much better than I did yesterday, thank you for ALL of the kind words you have sent as I muddle through my emotions about it all.
I wasn’t real thrilled with also finding out I have SHRUNK in the last few years, probably making my BMI even WORSE than I had thought before, but the doc actually assured me that after the surgery, losing weight should be much much easier. Since I miss no less than 10 days a month exercising as it is (how can you create a “habit” when you have to take a 10 day hiatus all the time?!) due to my girl “issues” I am very much looking forward to THAT not being an issue anymore. However, I ate like a skinny person yesterday. Have I mentioned I am an emotional eater?
I am not going to beat myself up about the weight or eating or whatever today though – because I am TOO excited about what is going on in my worklife! Last week I was invited to be a Speaker and Panelist at Tory Johnson’s Spark and Hustle event in Orlando Florida!!!! ME!!!!!!!!! Little Ole ME!!!!!!!!!!!!! I could NOT be more excited. I am driving down next Wednesday with my friend Jeannie, and meeting a handful of my Divas for three days of networking, learning, and friendships.
I have also done much better this week with curbing my work-a-holic-ness, spending more time with my family and less time at my computer. You know I am really cursed with loving my job to the point that I have to MAKE myself not work 24/7. I agree it is a good problem to have, but a problem nonetheless. Halle Joy is just growing by leaps and bounds, and I am still so enjoying being a part of that growth. It is like watching a baby learn to walk – scary, exciting, joyful, nerve wracking – but awesome to be “in the trenches” with it and seeing it grow every step. I am excited about our new Fall Line that is being ordered this week, and look forward to a really amazing season.
Seems like I am getting a serious dose of perspective here in my thirtieth year. Very excited about what is to come.
How is YOUR week going!?
