Gosh when I write you down 2010, you look so futuristic and daunting.
It was only your second month in that my life changed inside and out with the arrival of our sweet Miss Laurie, and it was only six weeks after that I was glazed over watching Ellen Degeneres do that awkward thing over the coffee table when out of nowhere, I had a revelation that I don’t want to spend my twenties worried about fitting my post baby chubb into my favourite pair of jeans, or about what bits need to be tucked in and which tops consealed it all best.
After I put the Tim Tam down – I found a God given determination to make a complete lifestyle change of losing the “inbetweens” (being inbetween sizes) and just focus on living, being happy, being healthy, being a great Wife and raising my baby with a clear idea of where I want to be in life and a real knowing of who I am. Overweight isn’t who I am.
So 2010, we’re officially in your second half – a truckload of hardwork and discipline brings me 13.5kgs into my 18kg goal, and I’ve armed myself with a new determination to continue our lifestyle upheaval with new ideas, heights and rewards.
Rabbit food and being sugarfree doesn’t suck as much as sucky sucks anymore – but seeing how far we – Mr Gadget and I – the Oscar worthy procrastinators have come, recharges me to finish you off 2010… and with a bang.
So, with a cold and a teething four month old, here I am, bringing my home a step closer to the more organised, creative and clutterfree ideal I’m trying to mirror in lifestyle.
One dressing table at a time.
