Today has been a good day and it’s only 11:11 (Hey! Isn’t that good luck, too?!)
Any-who, my morning started off like any normal day – alarm going off at 6:00, snoozing ‘til 6:10 and then out of bed to get ready for the day.
At about 8:15 I knew it was going to be a good day. Mr. J. Bitty sent me a text after he had dropped me off at work (we carpool since we work at the same place, just different buildings) and said he had washed my car and filled up the tank so I wouldn’t have to before or after my workout this evening. #dreamboat
A little after the #dreamboat text message, I was sorting through my work e-mails and to my surprise I had received an e-mail from someone I work with, expressing gratitude for how hard I had been working for this person. After I picked my jaw up off the floor from reading it, I thought - ‘ok, this is really going to be a good day.’
But wait, that’s not even the best part of my morning!!!
Later, I had to walk over to another building/department and I ran into a colleague that I hadn’t seen in months and the first thing she says to me is…”Have you lost weight?!? You look great!!” #daymade
That might have been the best thing I’ve heard in months. I’ve been working so hard with eating the right foods and working my butt off at the fitness studio (more information on this AMAZING place at a later date), that it was really nice to hear from someone (that isn’t a family member) that they had noticed my weight loss.
I don’t expect the people that see me all day/every day to say something about my weight loss because I barely notice and if I barely notice then my husband might barely notice and my co-workers probably don’t even notice at all – which is perfectly FINE! But it was so refreshing to hear and I don’t think this person will know just how much her words really meant to me. #evenmoremotivatednow
That’s all for now,
Mrs. J. Bitty
p.s. I’ve never really been one to take selfies (mostly because of my chub factor), but I heard no blog is complete without pictures so I will work on the whole ‘standing in front of my bathroom mirror and pose ‘ thing. But for now, here is a picture of the other two loves of my life!
