Remember remember something something November....

Well Guy Fawkes day has come and gone, Remembrance Day likewise has come and gone, and now once again, things will change.

I finish my work on the pilot of King & Maxwell tomorrow.  Saturday, I get the hair colour I've been lusting after for a long long time:

 Damn straight I"m a redhead at heart, and damn straight its going to be vibrant, because *I* am vibrant! And on Monday, I start the first day at my new job: A Post Production PA at Take 5 Productions.

Take 5 are the masters behind the amazing series The Tudors and The Borgias and are currently working on a new series called Vikings.  I'm uber excited to start here because it will be my first foray into the realm of post production in a "professional" (i.e. paid!) way. I'm excited, I'm nervous, but most of all I'm happy.  Working in a production office like this one will hopefully mean less ridiculous hours (of course there will still be long nights on occasion) and more importantly: biking to work!

This blog is supposed to be about my journey to health and happiness.  I've been mainly dealing with the issues I encounter on my way to health, though admittedly that has gone hand in hand with my happiness. Now, as it happens, an opportunity has come to me for increased happiness that will add to my aspects of health.  Less time at work means more time at home during the week so I can *gasp* perhaps cook a meal at night instead of having to precook it on the weekend. Maybe then I'll have more time to get up in the morning so I can work out again in the AM (though I'd probably stick that to the shorter workouts and keep my long Fire45/55/30 classes to the PM).  But that will also mean more time with my man, meaning a healthier, happier relationship and being able to use the weekends for more than just catching up on housework, sleep, food prep and the like. Quality of life goes up, happiness goes up, health goes up.

It's all just a big ecosystem of life eh?

In other news, I'm down to 201.6 lbs, making me so darned close to being under 200 that its driving me insane!!!  My goal is to lose 2.5 lbs by Dave and I's anniversary which is on the 25th of November.  3 years together, and my oh my what a ride it's been!  I'm working on eating cleaner and healthier, and I gotta say its making me feel way more awake and energized during the day.  In the afternoon, I know that if I make my snack a couple of sugary cookies and a handful of Reese's Pieces, I'm going to be falling asleep at my desk by 3pm.  If I make it a small apple with almond butter or a banana and yogurt, I'll be good and if not super bright eyed, I'll be awake and functional and better able to do my job.

Its a long process, but I'm learnin!
