Dear Me – The Shrinking Jeans of Thea


February 1, 2010 By thea

Better late than never, right?

Dear Thea,

You know how they say hindsight is 20/20, right?  Well, let me tell you, foresight ain’t that bad either.  That’s why I’m sitting here in January, 2011 to let you know that 2010 is going to rock your world.

First off, let me tell you what an amazing woman we are. You’re finally going to realize that in 2010 and I am wearing it well here in 2011.  You’re confidence is going to skyrocket and the joy you get from the everyday is going to follow naturally.  I am capable of anything and it’s all because of you.

Yes, I know it’s cold where we live and boohoo woe is us but I am so proud of you for sticking with the treadmill through last February and March.  That speedwork really paid off for your Wild Women 8k in April.  You wanted to finish in 1:00 or under and let me tell you…YOU DO!  I won’t tell you your exact time, though.  There are so few surprises left in life, don’t ya think?

Blasting through that 8k made you more than ready for your 10k in May. Again, I’ll let you discover the actual time yourself, but you’ll definitely be floatin’ around that 1:15 mark.  You impressed even me!

I am so proud of you for FINALLY joining a gym.  How else did you think you were going to start getting those swims in for you eventual triatholon? And you look HAWT on your new bike. When both kids started going to school FULL TIME, 5 DAYS A WEEK last  fall, you definitely started to up your game. You are going to LOVE being back on a bike again.

And seriously?  Maintaining your weight for most of 2010?  That’s stinkin’ awesome. Yes, there were a few errant pounds here and there, but you did so well in letting the past be the past and picking yourself back up again.  You are only human after all, right? I mean, come on.  EVERYBODY overate (or drank) at Hooker Retreat 2010.

Anyway, 2010 was an amazing year.  I seriously can’t wait to see what 2011 holds.

Peace out!
