Everyday Spectacular

Imperfections. Ramblings. Life to the Full.

Resolutions

So, Happy belated 2013 to you all! Did you make your resolutions yet? Did you write them down? Did you know that goals written down have something like a bazillion-ish more chance of happening than those just in your head?

Now, I don’t tell you that so that you’ll start thinking I’m some sort of life coach or expert list-maker and goal-achiever. No, I actually told you so that I could brag a bit. And, to give you a bit of hope that dreams, er, resolutions, really can come true.

Yep. See, I had this little resolution in my head to lose some weight this year, say 5ish pounds to start. (Anybody with me on this?)

NOW, YOU SHOULD KNOW, I DID NOT WRITE THIS DOWN. I DID NOT TELL ANYONE. IT WAS GONNA BE A SECRET RESOLUTION.

YOU SHOULD ALSO KNOW THAT I WAS SIMULTANEOUSLY PLANNING ON CANCELLING MY GYM MEMBERSHIP ( IF I COULD REMEMBER WHERE SAID GYM WAS, OF COURSE.) THUS, THIS WAS ALSO GOING TO BE A MAGIC RESOLUTION.

And, I am pleased to report,  it’s already happened. My secret, magic resolution. I did it! I lost 5 pounds!

How????

I got the flu!

Now, let me talk you through this. I could not get out of my bed for 3 days. I could not care for my children. I could not go to my husband’s grandmother’s funeral. I shook with chills. I sweated.

I honestly thought I might be dying. I am ashamed to admit I was going over my life insurance policy in my head, reassuring myself everyone would be ok if I did die. 

The flu made me a crazy person. I was having a one-woman party in crazy town.

But when it was over and I stepped on the scale, over 5 pounds lighter, and I thought… “Hmmm, that just might have been worth it.”

But, now that my resolution is checked off my secret mental list, what am I gonna do the rest of the year?
