For the most part January has not been so kind to me.

It started off with the Detox which made my body hate me and then I came down with a nasty case of the Norovirus which stuck with me for almost an entire week.

I've never experienced a sickness quite like that and I hope to avoid doing so in the future.

Meeting Jillian Michaels was definitely the highlight of this month and for me it was a dream come true! I figured that would be the moment that turned this month around but then Eddie came down with the virus and it was worse then I had!

Last but not least yesterday we lost our beloved family dog Brandy after 16 years.
I was lucky enough to be with my mom and her when it happened due to a snow storm the night before.

Words cannot express the heartbreak I am feeling at this moment but I am also happy it went the way it did.
She wasn't sick.
She wasn't suffering.
She lived the best life she could have ever wanted.
And she passed in her home, wrapped in a blanket and the warmth of her mothers arms.

As much as we all will miss her I know she is in a better place.

For now, I am just wishing for this month to end and for a fresh start in February.
