i just can’t wait!

i wanted to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

i won’t be around for a while, i will be celebrating the holidays with my family and then i am heading off on a road trip!  i am SOOOO excited!

this past month there hasn’t been much to write about over here.  i’ve been rather open with my diet and not so present at the gym.
i decided not to even begin stressing about it – i have my whole life – and right now over Christmas – i am just living.
the gym will be there in the new year, and so will my new mind set.

2012 is right around the corner.  i get very excited about New Years.  It means new beginnings to me.  New Hope.  New Life.
i am very excited about a clean slate!!!

I will be conquering my Zumba fear in 2012 – and continuing my healthy life style with new motivation.
I am so excited about what the New Year will bring.  to me that is better than Christmas.

May you all have a safe and happy holiday and love your loved ones!!

I receive emails from a website called bravegirlsclub.  i love getting emails from them almost as much as i love getting them from the universe.
the one i got this morning seems very fitting.  a wonderful reminder as the New Year sweeps in.

Dear Beloved Girl,

When we have old things in our hands that we are afraid of being without, with our fists tightly clenched around those things…and we walk around fearing what will happen if we ever open our hands and let those things go…when we worry whether or not anything else will make it’s way into our lives…if we will ever have enough…if our hands will always remain empty if we open them and let the old clenched stuff go………..if we keep doing that, we will NEVER be able to grasp onto what is meant for us.

What is done is done. What is over is over. We are meant to move forward, we are meant to progress. Everything natural and beautiful and true and living was designed to constantly be renewing itself, progressing, living living living and then dying….going on to the next step of it’s life cycle. When we clench old things in our hands, we prevent new things from being able to hold hands with us. New experiences, new things to learn, new relationships, new things that we don’t even know exist yet.

Today is a great day to finally let go. It will be ok. In fact……..it will be incredible.It might hurt for a minute, just like all endings do…….but the new beginning that is just behind the ending (the ending that is long past due) is where the miracles are. Hold on to that hope…but let the rest go.

Let it go.It is time.
You are so very very very loved.

new beginnings

i went out for a breakfast date this morning.
i forgot how much i love doing that!!!
there is a place locally…that is always busy…and always good
i hadn’t been in ages, so i thought i was long over due.

there is nothing better than throwing on a baseball cap, not worrying about my hair or makeup
and just going out and enjoying some one’s company
and some yummy breakfast!!!

of course watching me eat breakfast is a joy in itself…or so i have been told lol

as you know…i am pretty “weird” when it comes to food…but eating breakfast requires alot of prep on my part lol
see…i never knew i did these things until they were pointed out to me
but over the years…i have come to accept that…i am weird.
it’s all good.

of course…none of the food can touch – this is a given
the toast can’t even be on the same plate – i don’t know why…i have no rhyme or reason
but it is what it is.

and yes…i decided on eating toast with my breakfast today – whole wheat but of course
why?

well because i got my eggs over easy.
you can’t have over easy eggs without toast.  it’s just wrong.
for over a year of my life i’ve been eating my eggs every other way but over easy because of this.
so it was time.

so yes…after i made sure none of my food was touching…
i separated all of my eggs
i always eat the egg whites and save the yokes for last.
i save one slice of bread to dip my egg yolks in…and the other slice i put jam on
lol
it can’t be eaten any other way.
if by chance my breakfast comes to me with a broken yolk..i swear i almost have a coronary.
again – i don’t know why…it’s just the way it is.

i also notice i eat my breakfast in circles.
i don’t even know if i can explain that….
i eat some egg…then i eat my bacon or sausage..and then the hash browns
then i start from the beginning.
i save my toast with jam for the end

true story.

it takes special people to love me dontcha think? lol

and so breakfast this morning was a celebration
a new beginning to a new chapter in my life
it’s a little scary..a little new…a little life altering.
those of you who know me know i am a little scared of change…
but this is a good kind of change
a moving forward kind of change

life is awesome…
and it just keeps getting awesomer.

so breakfast is going to become a regular thing…
i want to go out for breakfast more often…
celebrate more often.
celebrate the fact that life always…always works out just the way it should, the way it’s supposed to.
(i won’t always have toast with my eggs but u get where i’m going)

the new word for the day: awesomer.  you must all use it in a sentence at least twice today lol

hope your weekend rocked your socks off 🙂

there was a big celebration last night kids 🙂

i took a special someone out for a special dinner…and brought with me my camera.  we celebrated a new beginning…a new chapter…to greater things a-comin’!!

ya know, it’s nice to go out for dinner with someone who doesn’t care if you want to take a million pictures of what’s about to go in to your belly.

so allow me to make your mouth water!

i started off with….

yes, this is low carb beer…and i love it

medium rare steak with mushrooms, in a peppercorn sauce.  no worries, the baguette was for show…i didn’t eat it 🙂
