Slow Go9:42 AM
Today is the first day of “Dump Your Pump”, a health & weight-loss challenge my work is encouraging it’s employees to join. I did join, even though I would have preferred this challenge to have started weeks ago, BEFORE my wedding, but still.
I have been known to be a person always armed with a plethora of projects and goals, and I have also been known for my snail-like pace at getting things done. Sometime this works to my advantage, I secretly adore the shocked look on the face of someone close to me when they discover I actually accomplished something I set out to do, be it months, or years ago.
My determination to finish school came at a surprise when I finally got my ass in gear sometime back in 2009; actually setting a wedding date was an even bigger one after being engaged to Kyle for 5+ years. The smaller things are what really shock Kyle at times, like learning how to jar food after spontaneously picking up a jarring book at Costco. Or teaching myself little crafts like making wreaths and random decorations for the wedding, better yet, planning the entire wedding.
Maintaining a healthy weight and cooking healthy meals is something I can do, with a lot of determination, but it helps to have a place to check into each week (work). So yeah, I guess my days of sitting in front of the TV, stuffing my face with triscuts, cream cheese, & BBQ sauce are over (yeah, I am gross but that is a delicious combination, even if it eventually makes me sick). WORD.
