I dreamed for YEARS - like half of my life! - about this computer, and what it could/would do for me. A really long list, I assure you.
But there is one thing, one thing that CATAPULTS it into "already paid for itself" status - the ability to JOIN my team on the Zoom Team Calls, and actually BE ABLE to see their faces and FOLLOW their voices, because the picture is so clear and the sound is pretty amazing.
And so you are probably unimpressed and thinking "...and?" but it's a big deal - I didn't have that before on the device I was using (Kindle Fire) - it was so pixelated, reading the speakers lips was practically impossible, and the sound was always muffled, and the volume didn't go up very high (to be fair, I was using a device neither made for sound nor video, haha), and I mean, it was better than nothing, but it left a lot to be desired, to be fully honest with you.
So last night, when I joined my first team call since purchasing this baby... I could barely stop smiling. I could FINALLY follow along with the speaker and it almost made me cry.
I have had my share of financial struggles, and for a split second after I purchased this computer, I went into a panic because OH MY GOSH, HOW could I SPEND that much money on MYSELF, all at once?! (I think that's a normal reaction, no matter how much money you make, right?) But all last night did for me was cement my belief that I am worthy of this computer, I am worthy of being able to join/see/hear team calls, and I am ready to do BIG things -- and this little beauty will help!
So for 30 Days of Gratitude, Day 21, this little powerhouse gets the honor!
We fell back, which means we got an extra hour of sleep, but it means it gets darker much, much earlier…
Many of us are summer children, unprepared for the cold test of patience that is winter. So while we celebrate the seasons, we also grieve the daylight; the sunlight.
This grief lives in your lungs. If your lungs are healthy, you might just feel a passing sense of sadness, a little pang of melancholy when the last leaf falls from the tree outside your window. But if you are already holding grief in your lungs, perhaps due to a bad breakup, the loss of a job, or bereavement, Fall can bring these greater pains to the surface. Sometimes this manifests as chronic physical symptoms like bronchitis and frequent colds, and other times it shows itself as anxiety and depression. The waning daylight can also trigger Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) in some people (that’d be me!) Good nutrition, exercise, and herbs can help but what’s really needed in the case of deeply held grief is counseling or other therapies that will bring release for these stuck emotions.
Reach out, don’t be afraid to talk about it or seek treatment – there is no shame in seeking treatment so you can be as happy as healthy as you are able. I have been getting acupuncture, and it has been very helpful – have you ever tried it?
In today's edition of Try It Tuesday, I tried a workout I had never done before - had never even unwrapped the disc (it was a bonus from one of my programs), so I went for it today... Never has a workout been more aptly named, I can tell you that right now. Awesome workout though, and there is a reason he gives more than his usual amount of water breaks - it's needed!
Some great #mondaymotivation to get thanksgiving week started!
There is no better time than now. What if instead of getting to New Year's Day and looking at the scale in disappointment and making a New Year's resolution to get fit, we used the next two months to give thanks spend with family and create a totally transformed version of ourselves? Not only weight loss, but overall health and wellness.

Nope, wasn't at my normal 0430, and that's because we didn't get in from Boston til around midnight, but what matters is I woke up, and got it done - had I procrastinated, I might have been able to talk myself out of it, and it's Monday; we never miss a Monday, maaaaaan.
