No champagne on New Year’s Eve…say what? This is actually horrible news. The worst. But I think it’ll be symbolic of a healthy lifestyle change. And if it works, I’ll be drinking my ass off next year. #nodoubtaboutit.
My first year of no divorce or deaths has almost come to an end. While it wasn’t the year I expected to be, it had its perks. First, I got a new job. After the SAP acquisition, my goal was to have a new job by the end of the year. I had one by June! And I’m really loving it at Socrata. Great work and people. Second, I got a new car. Thanks to George’s mad negotiation skills, my ride is now an Audi A3 with the newest technology. It’s a much better size for city living. Third, I had several fun trips: Santa Fe, Nashville, Whistler and San Diego.
The best part of the year was spending time with friends and family. When I think about the people in my life—namely you—it gives me pause. I’m really one of the luckiest people on the planet!
Okay—enough sap. Onward and upward.
Tomorrow I’m starting a 3 day cleanse. It’s a series of juices loaded with probiotics, fiber and nutrients. The goal is to get rid of all the crap and reset your body—not weight loss. It’s also one that a lot of celebrities use. You can learn more about it on the Kimberly Snyder site.
Of course, I didn’t think through the timing—doing this cleanse Wednesday through Friday. Wah wah.
The bigger commitment is Whole 30. Have you done this before? This is supposedly a great way to give your body a break from taxing digestive work. My friend (and colleague) Amy is going to be my partner in crime. We’re going to share meals and support one another as we go through sugar and carb withdrawal. Tomorrow I’m going to pick up the Whole 30 cookbook!
The biggest obstacle will be my 4 day trip to San Francisco in the middle of the month. I’m going to do my very best!
Anyone else want to join? Check out the Whole 30 site. Let me know so we can check in with one another!
Wishing you and your loved ones a very happy new year!
