Meeting up with friends for coffee is one of my favorite things to do. When you choose coffee, the focus is really on the conversation… not necessarily the food or the wine. Isn’t life really about the conversations anyway?
I feel like so much has been going on in my world these days, that we need a coffee date. We just do. I need time to catch you up on my crazy life, and I really look forward to hearing how you’re doing. Now, I know I have a tendency to ramble on and on… so you’ll have to stop me from time to time.
So… my world has been a bit of a whirlwind. I’m a Capricorn, so I naturally like to work. I throw a lot of my heart and soul into my professional life and my new job has really given me the opportunity to use more of my skills.
Amongst that, I’ve had the opportunity to travel a whole lot more than I have in years! This year, I’ve been to Orange County (a few times!), Milwaukee, Indianapolis, Salt Lake City, and Austin to name a few… No. I haven’t really had time to sight-see. When I’m on the road, it’s mostly about work and with my larger team traveling with me, we tend to work long days.
I’m glad you asked how I’m doing with my healthy eating plan. Honestly, it’s hard. Large dinners with (sometimes) pre-set dinner menus and bottles of wine on the table. It’s really hard to stay on track when I’m on the road. Most weeks, I’m only gone 2-3 days… so I really focus on making the best possible choices on the road and then eating well when I’m home. Thank goodness I have the Jenny Craig program when I’m home. It’s made things super-simple when I’m not on the road.
Speaking of Jenny Craig, I actually have some big news to share. Remember how I traveled to NYC with Jenny Craig last summer to promote their Simple Inspirations recipe contest?
Well, we’re teaming up again… I’m heading to California to visit the Jenny Craig team and to work on a new project that should really be a lot of fun! And, because I know you “get” me, I’ll tell you… this project has helped me re-focus on my weight loss process. I really feel like my head is back in the game for the first time in forever. And, it feels amazing!
OMG… I can’t believe we’ve been sitting here this long without talking about my latest home improvement project! Did I mention, I’m giving my home office a makeover??
I’m so excited about the initial changes I’ve made. I haven’t changed much about my place in years. The new office… It’s so bright, fresh, and happy… just what I need right now. Also, it makes things so much more comfortable working from home. I worked in there last week… and it was amazing! Yes, I’ll post pictures when it’s done. I promise.
Speaking of which… which one of these file cabinets do you like better? I need a side table for my printer and things… I’m leaning to the one on the left. Thoughts?
It’s funny you ask about upcoming vacation… because I do have a personal trip coming up this spring! My brother and sister-in-law suggested a trip to Vegas at the end of April and got me all excited about a fun getaway. When their plans changed, my “vacation brain” couldn’t be shut down… and so, my friend Donna and I are taking off for the desert in a few weeks to our favorite place.
I can’t wait to get there and to catch up with my friend Donna. So excited!
So… that in a nutshell is what’s going on in my world. So glad we had a chance to catch up. So, so good to have the time to share with you… let’s do this again soon!
