Shhh.... I have a covid lock-down secret
Thursday, November 05, 2020
So I have been working at home and really haven't gone out for much of anything besides curbside pickups at Aldi and the hardware store for the past eight months. Besides that I have a weekly team zoom meeting and have seen only 4 or 5 people in real life since March - my wasband, middle daughter and her daughter, and a couple friends on masked deck visits.
But since May I have been eating intentionally and running every other day. I've lost 35 pounds and am in much better shape. My skin is clearer and I truly have a new pep in my step.
It just hit me that at one point or another I am actually going to see my workmates and friends again. But when that day comes, my friends are going to notice the change. Instead of witnessing the hardly noticeable 1.5 pounds a week, my friends will just get the out-of-nowhere "after" picture. I rarely do anything for the approval of others but the thought of just showing up 50 pounds lighter amuses me so much! I haven't posted anything on facebook about my journey - except in the Sparkpeople group and a couple runner groups I'm on. So none of my friends really know that I am doing this.
So this is my big smile today. Today I see my journey as a big surprise that I am preparing for my friends. Today's visualization is stunned responses from especially a couple friends who are very health conscious when I make my big reveal. This has an added benefit of not resenting this lock-down. Actually I am hoping for a couple more months so I can get down to my goal! Tee Hee Hee!
