So, today was totally exciting in my world!
First of all, one of our patients came into the practice with Girl Scout cookies today. While these tasty treats are NOT to be eaten with the tenacity of a Dyson vaccum cleaner….they are still one of the most favorite things every year for me! Lol.
Before the cookies happened, I scheduled my first Pole Dancing Fitness class at Sumara Pole in San Diego. Alex and I bought a 4-lesson Groupon LAST February, and it expires this February 13th…so we had to get a-movin’! Class is this Saturday at 9 am…the “Intro to Pole” session. Let me just say this….if you live in the San Diego area and you are interested in something like this, I already recommend Sumara. Sara was kind enough to send emails confirming registration and the validation of our Groupons. Then, she signs off “Make today as beautiful as you are!” on her emails. Shut up. Love her already! Should you be inclined to check them out, and you should be, you can go to the Sumara Pole Website. They were on the 2012 San Diego Best List, and Channel 10 A-List as well! San Diegans know this is creme de la creme type stuff! (….this should be hilarious when Alex and I get in that room).
Why is signing up for a pole dancing class such a significant part of my day, you may ask?
Well, it just so happens that I have finished putting together my….
2013 Bucket List
Take Pole Dancing Class
Pay off my credit card (Hellooo, Refund check!)
Go on an exotic vacation (buying my ticket to Hawaii with my refund check, and booking timeshare, too!)
Have Excess Skin Removal Surgery (consult Wednesday…this can happen! Keep me in your good thoughts!)
Become a more well-known blogger
Attend the Obesity Action Coalition conference in Phoenix in August 2013 (if you’re attending, please let me know! I need a friend!)
Join the OAC as a bona-fide member
Register SeeSondraSlim as its own domain (no more .wordpress)
Throw Alex a KILLER Bachelorette soiree, the likes of which the world has never seen
Complete a Half Marathon
Run a mile in 10 minutes (post-op, if I have it my way)
Drive more traffic to my work blog, which I also write!
Go to Disneyland with my pass at LEAST 5 times this year
Buy myself a Rose-Gold Michael Kors watch I’ve been lusting after
Buy myself a black Coach bag I’ve been equally lusting after
Lose 15 more lbs
Buy my first 2 piece bathing suit (for aforementioned exotic vacation, obviously)
As you can see, while the list is not gigantic, it’s substantial. As soon as my surgeon gives me that surgery date, I am going to Target and buying a killer two-piece! KILLER! It will be phenomenal! I cannot wait! As a matter of fact….
I came home today, and my plastic surgeon I am having my consult with on Wednesday had sent me a cool folder full of neat info: Surgeon Bio and Accredidations, Patient Information forms (so I can already have them filled out when I arrive), as well as a breakdown of how the visit will go.
I. AM. SO. EXCITED/SCARED.
On the bright side, Dr. Arya has EXCELLENT credentials, and already the surgical coordinator who sent my folder to me seems like my kinda girl: Type A, super organized, and efficient. That is just the kind of office and personnel I want to work with when considering procedures that are so serious.
Otherwise, it’s pretty much the usual happening in my world. Trying to get more intense in my workouts this week…I really want to get back to running, but this knee has been making that kind of hard for me. Still need to call that physical therapy office back (bad girl)! Oh well…everything will get done in due time. I am proud of myself for filing my taxes, keeping relatively healthy groceries in my house (minus todays GS cookies purchase), and budgeting pretty well. All the bills are paid, and things are going well!
My post wouldn’t be mine without some photos. So…
The Michael Kors watches I am debating between (wouldn’t be me without a little bling, now would it?)
As far as the bathing suits….I believe I referred to the coral dream suit in a previous post, back when I began SeeSondraSlim in 2011. However, trends have changed slightly, so here are my thoughts…
As far as coral goes, I think a little western Cali flair would be fun…
On the flip side, I keep ranting and raving about how I won’t even ENTERTAIN the thought of having a baby until I get to rock a white bikini on the beach….
So yeah….that’s that! This is like, my virtual dream board. Lol. So much easier than back in the old days, when I was cutting pictures out of magazines!
That’s all for now!
‘Til Next Time!
