D.I.Y. Rock Star Rewind: Happy Harvest! 🥧 (December 2022)



Tech headaches….🙄

Well, even though I had a tough day yesterday, tech-wise, I made a BUNCH of concessions and am BACK to finding my joy. —To my credit, I created another 3 freebie opt-ins, which make great additions to our book and that can convince folks to join our tribe, but it WASN'T easy putting all the pieces together. But since “done” is the new “perfect,” I am going to count it as an accomplishment and move the fuck on. 😳🤷🏽‍♀️😬

Short trip…

— We’re heading out of town to a sync music conference that I am just a little annoyed about before I even leave. 😬🤷🏽‍♀️— In fact, I don’t EVEN want to talk about it until it’s in the books. —Suffice it to say, we are going to try our best to extract the good from it and leave the rest, but it NEVER feels good to be going someplace “wanting.” —It’s MUCH nicer to have no real expectations, except to go, meet folks, be cute and memorable, and come home. 😬🌹 —But I am going to TRY to maintain this frame of mind—and demeanor—even as we hope to shake the hand of someone who might give our music a new opportunity for sync work. 🤷🏽‍♀️

Lost a little… 😬

— Oh, and I am excited that I am 15 pounds down since August. 😊👏🏾 —I don’t know if you remember, but I was tipping the scales at 178 and WASN'T feeling very “Rock Star” AND wasn’t able to fit into ANY of my rock star gear anymore. 😳🙄🤷🏽‍♀️ —It was THEN that I decided to stop fucking around and do something about it! 💥 So, right then, I cut out ALL wine, swore off ANY takeout, stuck to my 20k steps a day, went back to only have nuts and fruit for lunch—which had been my go to for 49 years, so….🤷🏽‍♀️—and cut down on my portions and cut out all “extra” portions. When I was tempted to eat MORE, I would remind myself that I wanted to look better by Christmas and THAT would motivate me to STOP and have fruit instead. 🤷🏽‍♀️ —But I am HAPPY to say that it is paying off! 🥰🏃🏾‍♀️🙌🏾 My goal is to double that in the NEXT two months, so that I can start the year by revamping my wardrobe. —I am FINALLY emerging from my all-black wardrobe, which I have maintained for the last 6 years. I want to embrace colors again, but have ABSOLUTELY refused to buy ANYTHING until I can buy the size I WANT to be! 💥 —The BEST news is that, if I maintain this momentum, I SHOULD be able to accomplish this by January 1st. 📝💡🤷🏽‍♀️👏🏾 —I told Bruce that I have NEVER thought I would be so happy to be BACK to 163! 😳🙄🤷🏽‍♀️ Maybe THIS time I will appreciate my body and not squander it! 🥳🥰
