Happy New Year! 2013! I can't believe it! I love new beginnings, I love Monday's, first of the year, first of the month, etc. etc. I guess I'm always trying to improve myself and I love do-over's. So, firsts (is that a word?) are my favorite, it seems.
What is the main thing people talk about when the first of the year approaches? Resolutions and goals. I've heard a lot of people say they don't believe in resolutions because they don't want to break a promise to themselves. Okay, whatever. :) I do believe in resolutions and I usually refer to them as goals. I'm always setting goals for myself. I'm one of those that believes if you don't have a plan to get somewhere or achieve something, you probably won't. So, even though I have failed, I pick myself back up and try again. I will for sure worry about myself if I get to the point where I don't set goals for myself. I set them in every area of my life and I will share one with you today.
Since it is Wednesday and I started on one of my goals that I've worked on for quiet some time, I will designate each Wednesday post as, Weigh In Wednesday. Well, I say worked on...that isn't true.....I talk about starting a plan to get fit and healthy, but I don't really try. But, this is it. I feel like it is now or never. I'm not getting any younger and I refuse to buy a bigger size and the things I'm wearing now are getting very uncomfortable. So I have no choice.
I would love for you to join me if you can, or even share your goal in this are with me. You just may be an encouragement to a reader somewhere!
In 2001, I joined a group called PRISM. I had read a book by Karen Kingsbury and it motivated me to do something about myself. I had been packing on some poundage for quiet some time. I never really had a problem when I was young, but when I had my babies and got busy with life, I basically let myself go and whew....it wasn't pretty! In just a few months, I lost almost 60 pounds! Along with the eating plan, I walked every day about 3 miles.
Here I am 12 years later and I've slowly but surely creeped up again! Today is the end of all of that and I'm starting fresh! I'm excited and determined. I know it won't be easy, I've already fought hard to stay strong and today is just the first day.
