Happy Spring everybody!

For most, the first of January is the new start for most, which is forgotten after two weeks! For me this seems to be my new start. I don’t like to ‘trend’ like everyone else, (accept keeping up a little with fashion trends.) Spring cleaning closets, which coincides with Passover (see my Passover blog I wrote last year of family memories).

I have dropped a couple of lbs and am weighing in at 116lbs (from 155lbs). If you all remember the reason I started this blog, was to become healthy, not just physically, but in every other way. To maintain this healthy lifestyle, I change my diet every few weeks by introducing different fruits and veggies, keeping up with exercise and cutting out all sugar. Sugar is not known to me at all, however treats are made at home, such as whole wheat cupcakes, or if I am out and about on the weekend I will grab a frozen yogurt rather than an ice-cream. Water is the only drink I have, other than one coffee (decaf) in the morning. Boot camp is also vital to maintaining a healthy body or whatever you can do keep you healthy! A twenty minute walk every day, thirty minutes at least of cardio… get your heart beating!

I have also spent many months thinking about my career, thinking which way to go. After spending ten plus years as a successful Executive Assistant for great companies, I want to now move on to my ‘true love’ which is working for the Media, News Media. This however, means starting from scratch which I am willing to do but it means trying to find an ‘in’. So in order to do that, I have entered the world (obsessively) of Twitter! I have met the most amazing and fascinating people on there, even more than on LinkedIn and I have come to realise that Social Media is the only way to go! Word to you all, if you are not on Twitter…what are you waiting for…and follow me! (@joannahertzberg)

I will keep you up to date as to what happens, at the moment, I am just making connections and loving it. What do you do to connect?

Here are some updated pics of my daughter and myself…

{October 23, 2012}   Twitterverse!!

Hi everyone, I hope you are all having a fantastic day!

No doubt, most of you tuned into the debate last night and have your opinions, I am in no way going to get political, for some reason I never win a political debate even though I know who I stand by! hint: he is African-American and has been around for four years doing a great job! It doesn’t really make a difference anyway since I cannot vote, being British!

So as the two debaters were going on at each other, I decided to check out the Twitterverse and boy was that place busy! From celebs to ‘nobodies’ having their say about each and every line that came out of Obama and Mitt’s mouth, but one quote got me laughing, and that was the one on if there was an attack on Israel… someone wrote ‘an attack on Israel would be like an attack on Zabars’. So I decided to check out who this person was… why? I loved his humour!

Not to be a stalker, I found him on LinkedIn, and sent him a request to add him. Surprisingly he accepted rather quickly! This morning, I sent him a note, after realising he is a big executive for a Media company we all know, but I will keep him anonymous out of respect. I told him that I found his comment last night rather humourous and went on to tell him about myself! I told him I had been working as a PA for the past ten years and am looking to get into something different… he wrote back immediately and said he would love to meet to see what he could do!

I am so excited to hear back for an exact date from his pa…but wish me luck, you never know who you can meet on Twitter!!! As someone once told me, always think out of the box! :))
