Can you believe tomorrow will be one month since I moved to Michigan? I can’t. (I really should be more settled, but that’s another post.)
In honor of this momentous occasion, I thought I’d point out a few habits that I haven’t quite shaken:
I still shower at night. This is done out of necessity in Mexico because you sweat ALL DAY and there’s really no point to bathing in the morning.
I assume this will change when I get a job.
I still spit compulsively in the shower. You can’t drink the water south of the border, but that doesn’t stop water from getting in your mouth so… lots of spitting.
I assume this will change when I get it through my head that I live in MICHIGAN.
I’m still working out with Jillian Michaels.
I’m still cursing Jillian Michaels. I’ve been alternating between her 30-Day Shred and Burn Fat Boost Metabolism videos and they seem to be doing a good job of combating all the wonderful food I’ve been eating.
I assume this will change if I ever decide to join a gym again. Odds are I won’t because I’d much rather get an elliptical machine for home, but that’s rather cumbersome.
I hope the wonderful food doesn’t change.
I’m still battling Owen for control of the socks.
I don’t foresee this changing anytime soon.
And one big thing that HAS changed:
I no longer live in fear of being robbed, kidnapped, or killed. Seems like a small thing (at least to me) but I’m amazed at how quickly I’ve returned to thinking like my old self and living my day-to-day life like the rest of you. You know — leaving the house whenever I want to and not checking to make sure drug dealers aren’t watching.
Have you changed anything over the past month that you’d like to share?
