Secrets to a Good Nights Sleep: Austin Powers?? October 13, 2012

Outrageous. That is the word that best describes my week. To the T.

I have learned that these are the most wonderful inventions on EARTH:

The candle. Between this and music during the day it is very relaxing and helps me become re-inspired in all departments of my life.

My week was booked full of working and going out with friend and family. Though socialism can be exhausting at times for an introvert-extrovert person that I am, I am back to a clean slate.

Catching up with very good friends and ex-colleges and close family and to top it off making new friends all in one week is a lot of good in a very short amount of time. I cherish every moment and take it all in, but that still doesn’t stop it from being a bit too overwhelming. A night by myself was in order.

I was not looking forward to a night all by my lonesome as my lovely spent the night at my brother-on-laws house to prepare for their big game today, but I am grateful for the results. I spent the night getting my room maxed out in the cozy factor; straightening up (yes, I am one of those people who cannot relax if the room is messy) and lighting candles. I turned on the TV to Austin Powers (anyone else watch that last night?) until I fell asleep.

Though I woke up to Miko sitting on my stomach and pawing at my face to take her out, the night was still the perfect remedy for a feel good and revitalizing morning.

Speaking of a good morning(!). I forgot to measure and weigh myself before eating breakfast and drinking water this morning, but that didn’t get in the way of seeing great results on the scale! I lost 4.4 lbs and SIX inches off my Total body Inches Measurements. I was very shocked for such great results! I will confess I was not completely strict on the diet; I still had toast with soup and hot cocoa 5 out of the 6 days I am not supposed to “cheat”. But I really didn’t expect to have lost THAT much!

Overall a very RE-inspirational week and back to my personal goals that will forever change my life <3

Your goals should never be forgotten and take a short break if need be, but always get back to your purpose! Keep nurturing your ideas and they will grow to be the best thing that ever happened to you! Have a wonderful and Bright day!
