- In spring my boyfriend and I found a perfect place at the north side of Chicago that we now call our home.
- In summer we added four more legs to the Savoie Klein Haus. Monroe snooped in our life and with all his drool, ninja- countersurfing skills soon turned it upside down
- In fall I decided to become self employed and founded Kleine Deutschschule
By the end of the year I tried to fit in my last years beautiful holiday dresses... well... if I was holding my breath I might have been able to close that zipper.... too bad that I have to breath at some point... gosh darn it!
This wasn't the first time that those nasty little pounds sneaked up on me. I have always been an admirer of good foods and at a later point of life drinks kicked in as well, For the new year my goal is pretty clear:
I want my body back!
At least the one I had conquered by mid 2009! So off we go into a new year with just this one resolution. I have started my new way of life already yesterday - but was too hung over to start this documentary project (hey! the drinks were still served in 2011 - so I didn't cheat!)
Today's weight: 185 lbs - my scale is one of those old cheap one. I guess I invest $15 and buy one of those fancy ones from Aldi.
For breakfast I had a glass of cranberry juice - please don't lecture me about sugars and carbs! My answer to that are three simple letters: U T I! I am not a juice drinker at all (the purpose of a good juice is to blend in with booze!) but after a rather painful experience, I every once in a while insist on my antioxidancial friends!
I also enjoyed a few bites of my leftover rotisserie chicken.
I know my two worst enemies:
- portion control
I also like to eat not because I am hungry but because I know how good those potato chips are. I need to go back to the reason of food: to fill my body with energy, to keep me operating.
Hopefully this blog keeps my aware of my goals, my downfalls and my success!
Happy 2012 everybody :)
