Today I got to give my speech. I am here to write about it, so obviously it didn’t kill me. It was actually kind of fun! The Biggest Loser Kickoff audience was pretty full, in fact, it was a lot more crowded than I had anticipated. But they were really receptive, and the program trainers did a great job with the whole presentation. The picture of me and Rebekah that they put on the GINORMOUS screen behind us was a little disturbing. I mean, how big a picture of your own face should you have to look at?
Miss Rebekah did AWESOME in her speech. I was so proud of her. She had the audience pretty much in the palm of her hand the whole time, laughing with her, and somber with her… She did great! I didn’t do to bad either. Although I am not sure if I pulled off the whole, inspiring, funny, emotionally touching, motivational speech I was aiming for, but I didn’t pass out and no one threw anything at me. Always a good thing.
Now that I have that behind me, I can focus my manic personality on other things, like school work, my very dusty house, my unruly pets, the usual.
So after my speech today, I went back to the office and prepped for tomorrow’s busy day, went home and worked on two hours of homework. I took a quiz online, and signed in to the research program site for my Psychology class. Then I made a huge salad for dinner. When did I get so motivated to get stuff done?
Have you ever noticed that the busier you are, the more you get done? And the more you are getting done, the more people hand you stuff to do. I have been feeling really busy, super productive, and only marginally crazy over the last few months. I know that this is a direct result of my Biggest Loser success. Not the win, but the success at changing my environment with more healthy food and the daily exercise.
No, I am totally serious.
The more I exercise and eat healthy, the more energy I have. The more energy I have, the more I get done. The more I get done, the more people give me and the more I sign up to do, because I want to do more. I can do more.
Dang it! I should have put that in my speech!!!!
Today was a day to get things done, start new things, and reflect on how much my life has changed over the last year. My life has changed and almost all for the better. So today, I think I will just be grateful for the chance to recognize how lucky I am, and how many blessings I have.
(Although I am a little bugged I missed hoop class.)
