[New Year, New You] My Heart Opened Like an Oyster Shell . . .

Pleased to meet you!  Charmed, I’m sure!

The New Year, New You Project is an experiment in Magical Radical Transformation.  Please see here for how to participate! 

Right now to be completely honest I feel more like a modern Old Woman Who Lives in a Shoe (. . .who had so many children she didn’t know what to do) and not a Prada either.  I’ve been sick for real since Dec 23rd to varying degrees and not exactly rocking a super sexy look (my yoga pants, a tank top and my old man cardigan have been my uniform) and it’s been a challenge trying to balance everything.  But it’s been awesome so far and I’m really jazzed that everyone’s so into this.

So jazzed that after I mapped out the rest of this Experiment (you’re welcome ;p), I then went and mapped out a continuation of this experiment that’s definitely going to be free, definitely going to be fourteen weeks long and likely to be through email.  So while the first part will end on Valentine’s Day, there will be a second part which will take you to May which will push you past the first hard part of the year.

It’s not too late to join us in the Experiment, you can start on week one now and still be relatively in sync with your fellow Charmers if that’s a concern.  And if you started and fell behind, that’s okay!  Just pick up where ever you left off.  Even my husband-elect has fallen behind and I still love him just the same.

Speaking of your fellow Charmers, even if you’re not doing the Experiment, you can still observe other people’s progress and cheer them on!   If you join later, I will add you here and if you were grievously forgotten, poke at me and I’ll fix it.  Now, a la Patti Stanger, Meet my Charmers!
