January is traditionally the month when we’re feeling extra optimistic about the year. We talk about tackling all the household projects we put off the year before, losing weight, breaking up with cigarettes and processed sugar, washing that man out of our hair– you name it, and you or somebody you know is DETERMINED to do it. And sometimes, we actually do. Last year, I lost 50 pounds with Jenny Craig. My entire life changed as a result. I’ve traveled, met several celebrities, and have even been on tv a few times during my weight loss journey. Usually once I’ve achieved a goal, I give myself a little time to bask in my accomplishment. But as 2012 drew to a close, I got a little restless, and for the last two days I’ve been asking myself “Okay, now what?”
Excellent question. As most of us do, I have my own personal drama going on. It came to a head recently, and I’ve had to push the reset button in several areas of my life. I’m not good with change. My favorite color has been the same since high school. My taste in clothes has pretty much remained the same since my early twenties. My bestie usually has to drag me kicking and screaming into switching to new gadgets and computer programs. Change intimidates me. Trying new things is not something I’m famous for (unless it involves food!) But for 2013, no dipping in my big toe. I’m gonna take a deep breath, hold my nose, and jump right in. New job, new website, (I promise!) new experiences, new me. I hope the world is ready.
Are you making any plans for a personal overhaul this year?
