Well, I fell off the face of the earth and now I am back, I was hoping I would come out of the gates like a race horse but I guess anger and spite got the best of me. Winter is the hardest time for me anyway, so the added disappointment didn’t help. I have to say after my last posting I was surprised how quickly everyone came to my support. I received emails, texts and even an old friend dropped back into my life for a moment of support.
So here I am now looking at the finish line that has approached so soon, that I was really frustrated that I couldn’t go back and do it again. All I can say is yes ladies and gentles I made it to my goal. Of course I have to use the handicap I set for myself, but at this point I will take it as a win! So I will have to roll into 2012 with a plan to finish my goal.
Let’s recap in this past year of ups and downs shall we? I stared off realizing that I was shaped like a starfish, and that I not only needed to lose weight but I need to “bring my sexy back” by incorporating a Mantra, that didn’t stick very well. I found out that “Nancy” (typically I hate people that refer to themselves in the third person, but in this situation I am totally okay with it) very much resembles a sumo wrestler in a white thong; so we have made the switch to boy shorts. We have come to the conclusion that the “balls to the wall” is not the best policy for me to follow. Also; that my son has a touch of diarrhea mouth and has no filter.
Through this past year it has been a crazy journey and I have to say that I have made so many changes in my life that I have to look back and be proud of what I have done. I rededicated my life to me and my family ( even though it was not hugely successful, it is the fact that I tried) I restructured my work and gained new help. I started a kick ass Man Hating club that meets once and month and is filled with some of the most amazing women; which more detail will be coming. Not to mention the weight is better, and my health is better than it has even been. I also made a promise to myself to take care for my entire debit in the next few years, and take that stress off my plate. So here is to me….the fantastic fabulous, well dressed, charismatic, top shelf, individual I know.
Now for setting the new goal, of course it will be to finish what I started, but I think I am going to through a twist on it. This time it is for me, solely me. I want to be able to look into the mirror; I want to be comfortable in my own skin again. And if someone follows, so be it, and if he doesn’t so be that too! I will be requiring some help from you all of course. Like a new Mantra, something to inspire me day after day. Something I can scream from the roof top. So I am taking suggestions, post them on my blog, send them to me, and write them on my wall.
Here is to road we traveled in 2011, and the mountain we will climb in 2012!
