I coordinated kitchen volunteers, and food to make a delicious menu including food from our local farms this last week. I put an extra 20 hours a week in about my usual 25 hours at the Farm and 12 hours with the EMO Kitchen Coordination work that I do. Oh lets not forget mustard and caring for my partners 4 year old son. I can't believe I made it through last week, and looking back I was mostly calm, not too stressed, and well positive. Before the final 9 hour event shift I went for a 6 mile run. This run gave me the strength and concentration to remain steady during the last meal preparation, service and clean-up. Never in my life has an event went so smoothly, never before have I been so healthy.
I have to put more effort in everyday, but the rewards keep coming and I just can't keep up. I haven't weighed myself in a week and today I lost another pound. I feel great, I look great, I love myself and I can't get over how positive my outlook remains. Sometimes I feel like I don't know who I am anymore, but I like her. I love the new me!
