I survived 2008

It's hard to believe that 2008 is over. Last year has had it's challenges but it has been a great year. There are a few things that stick out when I thing about the last year:

  1. I met the love of my life, Chad, and his kids. We are beyond happy and having a lot of fun building our future together.

  2. I've lost over 50 pounds since January 2008...I'm very proud of that.

  3. I completed not one but two half marathons. I never thought I'd complete one much less two.

As I look towards 2009, I am very excited. There are so many things to look forward to. I hope 2009 is your best year ever!!!

Weight Loss Update

Just a quick update. Over the last couple of months, I've hit a plateau. I go up and down in about a 2 pound range. I know the holidays will be challenging but as busy as I am, I'm hoping I burn enough calories as I'm on-the-go! I want to keep on plan and maybe lose a little over the holidays. My goal is to stay on plan and still leave room for a few extra treats! Total weight loss to date is over 52 pounds since January 21st. I'm VERY happy about that!!!

Who needs sleep???

Working, shopping, singing at Disney, family, moving...who has time to sleep?

Yes, the holidays are in full swing. Last year at this time I was training for my first half marathon on top of the normal daily routine, singing at Disney and other holiday fun. This year, I have a wonderful man in my life who has three great kids AND I'm in the process of moving. OH, and I have a part-time job that gets me up at 4 or 5AM 2-3 days a week. Am I insane? Don't answer that! LOL

I was supposed to be doing the Disney Marathon in January, but I have decided not to do it...I haven't done the training. So, I will be a cheerleader for my friends. At least it's one thing off the to-do list for now.

Here's the latest update. I started a new job on December 1st...the other one I got didn't work out. It was good thing...I'm going to be much happier here. I'm still selling insurance and working to build my own client list.

Chad and I decided it was time to give up my apartment...I'm never there anyway. So, I'm in the process of moving into my new home. We've been moving things slowly but will have to pick up the pace a little after Christmas. I love walking into the house and seeing my stuff there...it makes it feel more like home to me. It's really exciting!

As usual, I'm singing at Disney. I've been there at least twice a week since Thanksgiving and will be there Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday next week. Anyone have a helicopter I could borrow?

Last night after singing at Disney, I went out on a mission to get most of my Christmas shopping done. I had a list and got everything I planned except one thing (only because I couldn't find it). I have only three things left and I'll pick them up this weekend. That is a huge load off my shoulders. Now, onto the wrapping!

Life is hectic right now but I thrive on that! I am lucky to have a great family, great friends and this year I have the love of my life (and his kids) to share the holidays with. I'm going to enjoy every moment. So, like I said, who needs sleep?
