Happy New Year ladies! I'M BACK!
As I look back on 2010, it was very momentous for me. I started it off by winning the first ever challenge on this blog, then I hurt my back, pretty much gave up, gained about 20 pounds, had to leave a career/hobby I loved, had to leave sweet friends and family in VA and NC and moved to California (via a cross country drive full of fast food and Diet Dr. Pepper). There were so many happy times last year, but it was the difficult ones that kept me from being the happiest, healthiest wife that I know I can be.
I've been in my new home for one month, my back still hurts sometimes, I miss my friends all the time, but I'm doing GREAT! Despite last years trials, I'm really happy and like it here in Huntington Beach, CA. There is such a positive and active vibe here. It's contagious.
I am so STOKED for this challenge. Not just because it's a new year, but because it's a fresh start. I'm excited that I'll get to keep in touch with all of you and not just cyber stalk you as I read your motivating posts, but was too tired/sad/busy to act upon them.
It's Sunday night, and I've just baked the last of my holiday goodies...a last indulgence before the real work begins. I will have to break my holiday addiction to sweets, that will be hard, but I can do it!
I wish you all luck as we begin a new challenge. I'm not going to be so bold as to say that I will win this challenge, because I know all of you are fierce competitors, but I'm going to say...you better watch your back. :o)
All the best!!
