The littlest fur ball woke me up at 5:50 a.m. to play, but how can I be mad at a purring, loving ball of fluff - I can't. The scale was unkind today. Bloat! After a hot, nutritious breakfast including 6 glasses of water I slipped on my earphones - Usher and I walked to work. I took 877 steps to arrive at my office chair. The mist covered my coat and the fresh air filled my lungs - I took a deep breathe. Yes, it is another day, another dollar but today is mine and I will embrace it for all it's worth!

Breath deep, blink, breath deep, blink ... repeat. If you were in my head this morning as I walked to work and then to the bank that's what you would have heard. It played on a continual tape. The sadness and emptiness swallowed me whole this morning and it was all I could not to break down in tears as I went about my business. Don't get me wrong, I love a good cry but I love that cry to be in a private location and not on display for the world to see or react to. I'm not sure where it's all coming from so I'll ride the wave and see what comes up for me. Something has triggered me but I don't know what the trigger was or what was actually triggered. For the love of all emotions I'll feel what I feel and stay present.
I've already created my fitness goals for 2011, which I did while on the elliptical yesterday.
So far I've come up with the following:
March, 5K run
June, 5K run
November, 10K run
Friday night a young man (half my age) told me that I was "hot" and he liked that I was "thick." I smiled. Yes, I'll take the compliment!
Saturday the Mr and I bought our Christmas tree. Fun times!
Sunday we went shopping and I bought a few sweaters from Old Navy. I was surprised to find out that I fit into a Large. Woo Hoo.

Old man winter has finally found my little corner of the world and it's chilly outside. We don't run the heater much, too cheap to pay for it, and we can generally get warm and cozy with a simple pair of socks and a sweatshirt. That's of course when we are at home.
Over the long holiday weekend I took the time to clean out and up the place. I took out 2 trunk loads of stuff to either sell, donate or trash - Amazing. It takes a lot to let go but my mind finally reached the point of, "it's just stuff, it's not who you are." There are of course sacred items from family that will live with me for my lifetime. I'm still not done with this process, my deadline to finish is Friday at 11:00 a.m.
I didn't get to my clothes closet, yet. It's time! It's amazing how my body can shift, tighten, tone and even drop a few pounds but some of those clothes are still ill fitting. The first skirt I pulled out fit like a sausage casing. Sexy. It's now in a ball on the floor. Frustrating. It's time to clean out the closet and figure out what fits, what makes me feel beautiful and what really needs to go. Hanging onto something because it's pretty but doesn't make you feel pretty is just wrong on so many levels. If I let it go, someone else can benefit and I can move on with my life.
