I am watching the most amazing sunrise! Pink clouds in a baby blue sky. I am and always will be a morning person. A night owl, I am most definitely not!
My review went very well! I left feeling pumped up and totally appreciated. I got nicked for having 1 more absence in a year than allowed, but that was all. I will do better next year because I am taking such better care of myself! I have only been in that department since August, but my supervisor and department manager are pleased with what I am accomplishing and very pleased that I take on all the tasks asked of me with a smile. They asked me to keep an eye on my little area to see if there is a better way to structure the work flow. They asked me to take the initiative when I thought something needed to be done or if I need to work some OT. I am well pleased with this years review!
On a different note, I have figured out a way to be able to have nuts in my house without overeating or finishing the who lot of them!(Can you say trigger food!) I just buy mixed nuts in bulk, in their shells and that makes me have to work for them. Sometimes it is just too much work to get to the nutty goodness, so I stop after just a small amount. Hey, whatever works!
I took a morning off from dancing, I have been exhausted these last couple of days, despite the fact I a usually asleep by 9 or 9:30 every night. Body could still be getting used to getting up so early and the fact I kind of just jumped in to a half hour of dancing without working up to it. Who knows? I will take my 15 minute walk this afternoon, so I can keep my goal of at least 10 minutes of exercise a day.
Let's make this a FAB day! We can do it! Remember ...you are loved!

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!
