so i’m absolutely loving this challenge so far! my elf is amazing… and i’m really having a great time getting to know her. it’s been awesome having someone to talk to (besides y’all) about this amazing challenge!
remember- you can STILL sign up to be an #elf4health during rounds 2 & 3… check it out here!
today, our challenge was to send a handwritten note to a friend; i happily penned a card to my girlfriend, jamie. lemme take some time to give this girl a serious shout out: jamie and i met while working for the same company a few years back, and we’ve been besties ever since! jamie is hardcore into fitness and healthy living and is an amazing example and inspiration for anyone trying to get in or stay in shape. this girl is for real, with a fancy schmancy masters in some kind of nutrition field (;))…PLUS she just got spin certified (holla!). not only does she put up with and support every new tactic of mine for getting motivated to lose weight (obsessive journaling, paleo, crossfit, vegetarianism, marathon running, #elf4health, among others), but she is seriously one of the best friends you could ever ask for! like when i was getting married, she listened to me vent, helped me plan, and sent covert emails to my MOH to get top-secret details under the guise of helping. (i had a year and half long engagement, people, you have no idea how tiring this must have been!) she loves my ken-which is important because he can sometimes be not-so-loveable. please- i didn’t like him at first! she also brings back ah-mazing gifts from morocco when she is off visiting her in-laws…what an awesome gal?!
so ms. jamie, when you read this, know that i adore you, and so value you in my life! (<–not as good as handwritten…but hold your horses, that one’s coming!)
