Merry Christmas, all! Today is the day after and it’s the start of my staycation… ahhhh! I love being home!! The holiday was very nice and we didn’t go crazy. I’m not very materialistic and I have given up stressing over all of the shopping and wrapping and obligations and craziness years ago. I like a nice quiet Christmas Day in PJs and that’s just what we had. Christmas Eve is the big night with Al’s family and then Christmas Day is spent at home. This year, my brother, niece, nephew and my Dad came by for lunch and it was nice and low key. I’m off work until January 5th and I’m got a nice To Do list going. Of course, there’s IEPs to write, Alternate Assessment to plan and some playing around and learning with the Chrome Book that all of the students will be getting when we go back to school, but there will be plenty of time to exercise, read, knit, crochet and spend time with my girlies. It feels so good to not set the alarm; oh how I can’t wait to retire!!
I’m doing great with my healthy lifestyle and my involvement with AdvoCare. It’s been an awesome fit for me and I’m looking forward to helping others have success with it as well. My progress has been great! So far, I’ve lost 25 pounds and my cholesterol is down 48 points. My energy is through the roof and I am helping others change their lives. There’s a national 24 Day Challenge kicking off on January 7th and I’ve got a nice team of family and friends who will be doing it with me.
