.... I start actually living it! Which makes it harder to find time to sit down and write.... Can't say I'm complaining though. :-)
Developments, developments it's been a busy week!
First... I will let you know that I reached my goal of 10000 steps several days early! Saturday to be exact... the pedometer registered 10200 steps. Given that these contraptions aren't the most accurate I will take the overage as meaning that I truly did reach my 10000 steps! YAY...
#360 The goal has been met, and I thank you for your contribution!
Captain! Welcome back to the blog! Thank you for yours as well! I'll use your generosity as my incentive for next Wednesday!
Other things that have hit my world, that have made it the happiest place to be... I received a job offer! It is the best of all possible scenarios and after background and reference checks I will have a start date.. and YAY after nine months I will be gainfully employed! Wah hoo!!!!
Second, I managed to find myself a guy... a guy that, in the early stages of this new adventure, seems to be exactly what I need. He's smart, funny, good looking, has the best manners on the planet, and we can very easily pass away the hours talking about everything and nothing. He even loves that I dance, and write and even after knowing him a short time is just as excited about my job as I am. He will come up every now and again referred to only as "The Beau"
The one bit of negativity that I do have to report is that last Saturday (the day I actually hit my 10000 steps) I slipped on the ice at my apartment before heading into the city to spend the afternoon with Jem and the evening with The Beau... I didn't think anything of it.. my foot hurt, but could take weight... and so I cruised around the city all day and night having a wonderful time... Now it seems that my entire right foot is swollen and bruised the most unruly shade of purple. So it's off the dance floor for me, and once again elevating and icing. I'm still taking steps though.. just not many of them dance, as my dance shoe's closure runs right across the bruise and quite frankly... hurts.
I am STILL counting steps! I'm averaging around 6000-7000 a day thanks to slow walks on the treadmill... every little bit helps... I will once again reach my goal of 10000 steps on Wednesday. Pretty soon this is going to have to be a daily thing... and while I'm pretty much the first one to ignore an injury, I've put my feet and ankles through so much this past year that I now have to respect the damage and take care of it.
So far the only think I can think is that 2010 is my year.. and there is nothing... NOTHING that is going to be able to stop my momentum... 2010 is the year of the Kat.
Keep those comments coming folks! Thoughts, ideas, maybe tips on how to get a blood bruise to go away faster? I'll work on getting more writing time in!
