First day of the New Year...started w/a thud....

.....but she rallied!!  OMG, I can't believe what I ate today not to mention, I feel sick now.  It started with Hoppin John (this year couldn't pass up the oppty for luck and money) then a bag of chinese noodles (the crispy fried ones) courtesy of my bro's chinese restaurant, pistachio nuts (what the &^%$# were they doing in my house) with a couple WW choco bar chasers.  All while watching Julia & Julie.  I loved the movie AND it was the inspiration I needed.  Perfect timing!   So after my nap (I'm a great napper) I went to the gym for an hour workout. 

The bottom line this year and every year is we all fall off the "program" occasionally and when we do, sometimes we have to LOOK for inspiration to get us back on track.  We are lucky when inspiration finds its way to us but if not, go looking for it.  Today I was re-energized by Julia & Julie.  They were both so committed to their passions that in spite of obstacles and their personal meltdowns, they rallied and kept on going.  Never giving up!  Julia Child even had the support and encouragement of someone she didn't know and only kept in touch with as a pen pal (for those too young to know what that is, google it). 

Inspiration, motivation and energy is often in places you'd never have guessed so be open to it and if it doesn't come when you need it, go find it.  It's there for you, just email me! 

I hope the New Year brings you good health, great times and meaningful relationships.  Happy New Year!
