With the New Year Upon Us...

19 days late - hip-hip-hooray and Happy New Year! The holidays were super relaxing, and I spent a lot of time enjoying the new 40 inch Sony Bravia (TV) and my new Roku player. Have I mentioned how rock n’roll that player is yet? Seriously, it is. Streaming content (Netflix) straight to my TV is genius. My current marathon involves watching every episode of Kate and Alley. That show is seriously cool. Jane Curtin makes me feel better about my own neuroses and datelessness.

2009 marks my final year in my 20s, and I refuse to head into my 30s overweight. So, it’s officially been 8 weeks since I decided to live a healthier, cleaner lifestyle, and I am proud to say that it is so working. I’ve lost 8 pounds and feel fantastic. I’m eating clean and exercising 30 minutes a day. Some days I am tired or want to eat a cake, but I power through. Dropping a pants size is much more rewarding than a cookie. Part of what has helped me is Write Yourself Right Sized by Julia Cameron. It makes me want to jump back on for another round of The Artist’s Way.

Other than this, life is tame right. I’m trying to get back into the routine of non-Holiday life. In just a few weeks, we’ll be heading into perfect weather season down here, and I’ll be living spring break for a few months: sunshine, blue skies, the beach, and my lunch hours in the sun at Starbucks.
