OK, since you asked... This just makes me laugh :)

So I got a call on a Thurs night (4 days into my 2 week trip) to immediately stop work and find the first flight home. I was ready to kiss the airport carpet when I finally landed in the USA.


Oh no that sounds like an awful trip!! So sorry you had to deal with all of that. I would have been freaking out for sure. At least you got to come home early!

Thanks LC, glad you posted that. It made me smile

Yeah, so I don't think I am an emotional eater - but I ate, like, 6 cookies last night after my Pilates class cuz I was feeling bummed about losing the contract.

Anyone got any love for me? Anyone?


Ps - the guavas are yet to be eaten. Evidently I bought unripe ones that were hard as rock. I put some out on the counter to speed up the ripening, and literally within hours they were stinking up the joint. Now I'm just waiting for them to slow ripen in the fridge. Maybe this weekend I'll attempt to eat one.

HOLA AMIGAS!

SO, this particular challenge clearly was a bust. What do we want to start planning for 2014?

Exercise? Food? Everyone on their own? Personal goals? What?
