Good morning! Well, December is finally acting like winter at a nippy 40 degrees out at the moment. Love it! Went to bed early last night and was up at 4:30 again with 37 minutes of dancing! No snooze button hitting for me since I started! Yay me! *LOL I slept well last night, but am very sleepy this morning. It may be the cold.
Today is my annual review, and for the first time in years I'm not freaking out over it. I always dreaded it with my last boss. Last year, it almost ruined my new year. She can be so negative, despite the fact I worked my tush off just to get a nod. It all comes down to two polar opposite personalities.
My new boss is much quieter and more relaxed than my last one. She has acknowledged my work any number of times and makes me feel as if I am part of the team. HUGE difference. I look forward to going to work and people notice how much more outgoing I am, how happy and cheerful I am. Thank the Universe for arranging things to make me happier and much more productive!
Well, breakfast time and then need to get dressed and head out the door. It is a great day!
Make healthy choices today, and if you get a chance, listen to Lily and Karen over on Spark Radio. They will help keep you on the right track!
Have a splendiferous day!

I decided that today is a rest day. It is a jammies and hot chocolate day. It is a delicious nap taking, Christmas movie watching, couple of loads of laundry, Sunday.
That is all.

This weekend my whole routine was thrown off by my company holiday party. I was at the grocery store at 5:30 yesterday morning to get my shopping done and had everything put away by 7:30. Had a small breakfast, loved on my cat, spent a few minutes on line, then took a 4 hour nap! I meant to only take an hour and half, because I knew I was going to be up late.
The party was nice, it was great seeing friends from my old office I hadn't seen in a year. I had one drink and ate a reasonable dinner, including a decadent dessert. We eat way later than I normally do at home and even if I hadn't eaten lightly throughout the day, I would have been hungry. I didn't dance this year, I felt a bit standoffish since both of the friends I was hanging with left early. Not to mention, as our company has grown over the last 23 years, I know fewer and fewer people at these shindigs. I left and made it home, but was wound up, so I didn't get to bed until after midnight. (I'm usually in bed between 8 & 9)
I didn't get up til 7 and I am feeling really draggy. I am definitely needing to dance today and get my schedule back in line. I hope I ditch this feeling of, well, not melancholy, as such, but I don't know, whatever it is, it is just not normal for me. It's amazing the difference one off day can make!
Today I am back on track, going to have some breakfast, do a little cleaning and laundry, dance, and shake myself out of this feeling, whatever it is. Time to put on some wiggling, giggling, shake my hips music and GO!

"Every day do something that will inch you closer to a better tomorrow."
Woohoo! What a way to start the weekend! 3 pounds down since I started with my new calorie range and choice to dance last Saturday. I know I was going to wait and weigh myself monthly, but I had to see if I was making any progress with this new program!
I think I may have hit upon my formula, but I may weight myself weekly until January to make sure. After that, I will go to monthly. Gee, a little tweaking and experimenting can make all the difference. It all comes down to What Works for You!
That being said, I woke up with a sharp headache this morning, so I didn't dance. I'm waiting until I can eat breakfast so I can take some meds. (I have to wait about an hour after taking my thyroid medication before I can eat and there is no way I am taking headache meds on an empty stomach) Anyway, I will do my afternoon walk, and plan on dancing later today if my headaches recedes.
We are being treated to a pizza party at work today and I have already planned on one piece and lots of salad. Tomorrow night is our Holiday party, so I will eat lightly today and through the day tomorrow and make smart choices tomorrow night. Maybe I'll dance!
The sky is beginning to lighten into another beautiful morning. It has been a stressful week at work, and as I know it will straighten itself out, I am trying to be patient. I am so grateful I have this job and I am in a place that I actually enjoy going to work each day. Having my job is always at the top of my gratitude list. However, that doesn't mean I can't vent a little about the occasional stress.
Wishing every one a beautiful day! Be sure to do at least one thing today tat brings you joy!
