So I’ve been in Madison, WI since mid-September, 2012. I’ve found that overall I think Madison is a wonderful town. Everyday I walk to work and even when it’s freezing cold, I feel grateful that I’m walking through a beautiful downtown, to a job that I’m passionate about, and that I work with people whom are equally passionate about their jobs. We spend so much time at our place of employment that it’s very important to me we like our co-workers and that we enjoy our time at our jobs. I’m grateful to have found this perfect combination.
I’m enjoying living downtown although I’m a little under-whelmed at my current apartment. I think I’m paying too much for a living space that although is ideally situated, it’s not modernized and the setup is a little odd. I expect I’ll be moving this summer. I’ve already started looking.
My last post I talked about how 2012 was not a good year for me and how towards the end of 2012 I had started taking steps to create more a happy life. I’ve continued those same steps and I’m excited for what 2013 has in store.
So far in January I’ve kept a pretty low profile. I’ve spent this month working on myself. I’ve lost 15 of the 20 pounds that I had gained (this has been SO hard and definitely not happened overnight, I actually started in December). I’ve done this using Medifast and a combination of playing on my Wii and walking. I’m starting to be able to fit into some of my clothes and I’m feeling much better with my overall health.
I’ve been spoiling myself a bit too. I’ve been getting facials and I’ve found a wonderful hairdresser. I’ve also been making plans for this year. Starting next month I’m traveling to see friends I haven’t seen in quite a while and I’m doing a lot of fun things! You’ll be hearing about it on the blog (and seeing it too through pics!). I’m getting really excited for 2013!!!! It all begins when I head back to Iowa next weekend and Dallas, TX later in the month for work, Las Vegas in March….and more!
So that’s my update for now. I’ve got some really great things coming this year and for the first time in a long time, I’m excited.
Oh, and don’t forget the big one…I turn 40 this year. We are going to make this year ROCK! More to come…
