Miss me? Yeah, I’d like to miss some of me too

Yeah I’m talking about being overweight again. It’s my blog. I can do what I want. Actually, I’m only going to talk about it for a second. Let me tell you that I was on a roll with Kickboxing for Dummies. I was kicking, sweating and punching to my heart’s content. Then I got sick; then that time of the month came. Can you say motivation over?!

I must admit, I’ve missed the chipper lady that encourages me to punch and kick to the best of my abilities. Now, if only I could get the encouragement to get up in the morning and pop the DVD in. That’s the beauty/beast of working at home. My day is quite flexible, but that means didlysquat if I don’t schedule my time correctly. If I get up too early, I’m going to need a nap. If I try to push past a nap, I’m going to either crash unexpectedly or have to go to bed earlier than expected.

I’m not going to lie to you or myself. I’m not doing a stitch of exercise or changing my eating habits for the remainder of the month. My first reason is because it makes a hell of a New Year’s resolution, and my second reason is because I’m currently too hormonal to commit and mean it. Yes, I just bought a cherry pie today. Yes, it will be gone before January 1st.My husband and I will tear it down. That is a fact.

In all seriousness though, I can honestly say that I am ready to make a few changes in my life. My work habits and my health are my primary focus. I don’t expect everyday to be smooth sailing. I expect some days to be better than others. In the new year, I want to miss some things about me-the less than positive things. I don’t want to miss them as in year for them. I want to miss them as in be able to recognize that I have moved beyond them. Maybe it’s me moving past my quarterlife qualms, or maybe it’s embracing them and taking them for what they are: Life.
