Whooshing and buzzing

Hey guys!

I typically go through my day and several times I think “oh I need to remember to blog about that” and then I get busy and I forget and before I know it, two weeks have gone by and I haven’t posted anything at all. Then when I do finally remember to sit down and post something, everything in my brain goes WHOOOSH and I can’t remember anything that I wanted to write about.

Today is one of those days. So I’m just going to start typing and see what happens. Fun!

I’m still doing great with my food and exercise –  getting up early to work out most days and paying attention to what I’m eating. Lately, I’m all about walking videos like Leslie Sansone’s videos. If you look for “20-minute walking videos” on youtube, lots of options pop up, and that’s mainly what I’ve been doing. I love it! I actually really enjoy it and I have so much more energy now. I can definitely tell a difference in the days I workout and the days I don’t. If I miss a workout, I don’t worry about it, I just try to get one in the next day. No big deal.  Food is pretty much the same way – I’m still not dieting but I’m eating better now than I probably ever have before and there is no shame or guilt when I eat. I don’t have any kind of label for the way I’m eating – I’m just eating. I hardly ever overeat to the point of uncomfortable but if I do, I tend to not eat much for the rest of the day, not because I think I don’t deserve it, but because I honestly just don’t want to. It’s such a world away from where I was for the past 20 years. I know there are those of you who still struggle with the “crazy food voices” and I just want to say that if I can get to this place, then you can too. I promise. It takes a little work, but if my stubborn ass can find peace with food, I’m pretty sure you can too.

Did you ever think of a project that you wanted to do, but you can’t get your thoughts organized enough to even know where to begin? I’m currently at that place. I have an idea for something that I’d really like to do  – and the thought of it won’t leave me alone – but I’m not sure that A) I’m  actually ready to do it and B) I have no idea how to begin. But it’s one of those things that keeps buzzing around in my brain and if I don’t take some kind of action on it soon, I fear the buzzing will just get louder and louder until my head pops off. It’s a project that is very exciting to me but I’m not sure what form it should take. I know this all makes zero sense to you but if and when I get moving on it, you guys will be the first to know. 🙂

In other less vague and mysterious news, I have a new boss! My old boss stepped down (it was a move that was sorely needed) and he was replaced by one of my coworkers. I think this will be a very good move. When the announcement was made, I was weirdly euphoric and so looking forward to the changes that will be made here – things have been very loosey-goosey and slidey for a long time. When the boss doesn’t care about the work, it makes it hard for anyone else to care either, and I think my coworkers and I all got into a funk that has lasted far too long. New boss’s first day is today and he’s already hit the ground running and breathed some fresh air into this place. I’m actually looking forward to seeing how things progress. I may change my mind later on down the road, but honestly, I think this is going to be a great change.

So what’s going on with you? Have any good news that has happened lately? Share it below and spread some good stuff around, I think we all would love to hear it!

  1. Just FYI, I get your posts in my email, and most often, for some reason, they arrive as I get to the gym, so I read them on my iPhone. But I don’t like to make comments on my phone, so sometimes I forget to come back and make a comment!

    Anyway, I was very glad to hear from you. And yes, almost every project I do (quilt-wise) I think I have the idea, but then I doubt myself, or I can’t figure out exactly how to do what I see in my mind, etc. I’ll tell you what I”ve been telling myself lately–JUST TRY.

    Glad to hear about the new boss, and that he seems to have some good energy going there. Having a bad boss for so long can be very de-motivating.

  2. Wonderful news about your peace with food. Good job! Hope to be there one day too…I`ve been struggling for 20 years now, it`s horrbile. post is very optimistic good for you

  3. Hey Jill, as usual we are on the same wavelength about food. I just posted wiping ‘crazy food voices’ from our brains, and I seem to aim for the part of the journey that you have now reached! I’m getting there too, but yes it is stubbornness and work, and I have refreshed this determination in the last few weeks and am moving forward.

    I’ve also got a new project on the horizon that I’m just not willing to jump into, it seems like fear of starting it down the wrong path is getting in the way. I think we both have to take the plunge!
