I’m feeling decidedly optimistic today, yes, it hasn’t been my favourite week, but good memories have been and will still be made before it is out. I can’t be 100% sure if the mood is due to the Anadin’s or to Jeffery. Either way I’m going to revel in this feeling while it is still here. And that means I can blog.
So what are the good things that have come out of this week? For one I told my boss/ex husband that I will be looking for other work from the beginning of February. This has taken a huge amount of stress off my shoulders and also means that I will starting afresh and beginning a new career path soon, I’m also looking forward to better pay and benefits.
I’m pretty sure that I’ve lost a considerable amount of weight due to my almost non existant eating habits of late, which is awesome due to the fact that I did pick up an extra few kilo’s during the Christmas period. I have yet to go to the gym this year, but I have had my daughter most of the time. Next week its time to klap the gym heavy charna! Also due to the fact that it is January and I am pretty much broke I am on a strict diet of chicken and vegies.
Do I have any fitness goals this year, other than stirring the pot, driving everyone insane and talking in circles? Well my main goal is to get my ass perkier than a porn stars.
Also on my priority list is to involve myself in at least one “extreme” sport a month, starting with Bungee jumping. This is me starting to check items off my bucket list slowly but surely. There are obviously other things on the list, but let face it, I’m not 20 years old anymore and God knows whether Ill be able to do kloofing, diving, skydiving, whitewater rafting, sandboarding, etc in 10 years time.
And then of course, I’ll be speeding loads of time with friends and family, quiet times, good times party times. I’m also trying to resolve to be a littler “nicer” this year. Perhaps ease back on the attitude and the sarcasm…I’m not promising anything here…so don’t get all excited yet. And you now what they say: ”A Nice Romy is a boring Romy”.
In the old end its about putting as much as I can into this year. And what am I taking from last year? Well I’m not compromising myself for anyone else. It’s a lesson I will take to the grave with me(well there goes the being “nice” resolution). But this means more importantly not settling for anything less than you deserve.
And to end off, a quotation from Emerson:
“Be not the slave of your own past. Plunge into the sublime seas, dive deep and swim far, so you shall come back with self-respect, with new power, with an advanced experience that shall explain and overlook the old.”
