Goodbye 2011! I'm so ready to move on to a new year and new plans. But first, some of last year's accomplishments should be shared and celebrated!
~In April, Mini got a job at one of the 'Big-Box' stores! She's done really well and is on management's radar. November brought a promotion to a different position and a pay raise. It also brought a new, 4 AM start time, which we are slowly adjusting to.
~Last January I set out to lose 30 pounds, thru a change in life-style habits. Christmas Day I weighed in 33 pounds lighter and several sizes smaller than I was at the start of the year! It's amazing and a huge accomplishment. The reward is looking and feeling so much better. Being able to wear cute and stylish clothes that fit. No more 'fat-sucking garments' needed to be able to fit into a dress! And I found a love of power-walking in the process! Bonus after bonus!
Yesterday Mini and I found ourselves on a walk and ended up at a coffee shop nearby. Just a casual and low-key start to the year. We shared soup and a grilled 4-cheese sandwich that was so, so good! And snapped a few pics to remember the day. One of my plans for this year~to take more pictures. To keep a better record of the year, both with photos and writing.
And my wish for the New Year? That we all have a year filled with love, laughter and good health.
Happy New Year!
