If you don’t already know I have TMD which is emporomandibular disorders. The dentist discovered it earlier this year when I was in South Carolina and had to have dental surgery. TMD is where the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) is the hinge joint that connects the lower jaw (mandible) to the temporal bone of the skull, which is immediately in front of the ear on each side of your head is damaged.
This week’s Trash Can Bloggers Writing Prompt is something I had to think about. I mean if you could have just one super power for a day what would it be? All of the possibilities, I mean I could choose to fly or may be invisible so I could rest without being bother. In the end I think I came up with something I could live with.
As you all know each month not only am I writing a post about my Shaklee180 experience but I am also do a video. Here is this month’s video! I hope that you all enjoy my favorite smoothie and can see the results of my diet! I have lost 11 pounds and 5 inches! So I now weigh 199 lbs and am 38 inches in the waist!
Yesterday I received the wonderful email telling me that I was selected to be part of the Shaklee 180 program. It is a weight loss program that select bloggers are doing. I cannot wait to get started and share all of my videos and posts with you all (and you all thought the 30 Days of Me was revealing, you are about to get up close and personal.)
Have you ever had moments where you totally felt that way? That is how I have felt this week. There is so much that I am now behind in and so much that I really need to get done. The problem is there were several issues over the course of the last couple of weeks that have caused all of this. Tomorrow I won’t be on much because I am going to the dentist and more than likely won’t feel like doing anything else afterwards. But who knows! I may feel so totally fabulous!! Fingers crossed!!
Today is the big day! The day when people everywhere starts making those resolutions and they begin a whole new chapter in their lives. While I have things I want to accomplish this year I am certainly not calling them resolutions The reason is that resolutions tend to fall by the wayside and I want to achieve my goals. I have listed them all in Evernote and plan on marking them off one by one once I accomplish them. Some are for work such as gaining new readers and followers while others are too personal to share.
I saw this quote from Sir Winston Churchill the other day and I thought it was simply the most perfect quote for me. In fact it is going to be my mantra for the new year. Something to remind myself to keep going when the days get tough.
This week has been an emotional roller coaster and it is barely half over. I started the week with such a plan but then life it seems had its own plans. If you keep up with me on Facebook you will remember back the week before Thanksgiving I discovered a lump in my throat. Well I had a sinusitis infection at the time so I figured it was simply a swollen lymph node. No big deal, the infection would go away and the node would return to normal.
