2011....For some reason, it just excites me. I made the committment to myself in 2010 and now in 2011? I am coming into that turn strong. I am taking it on and I am not letting up on the gas.
My focus for this year is Patience. To find the lesson in it all...To think twice and speak once. To follow through and do things right. To not curse. That last one kills me!
My key words.....Patience, longevity, committment, persistance, forgiveness, surrender, consistance, self love, Quality and kindness. To be kind to my body and soul. whether it is through the food I put in my body or the words I put in my head. To Be kind to myself and of course others...To Provide myself with a healthy body to feel good about myself and carry me through my journey. Oh, and to bring sexy back.
It's basic. Calories in and Calories out..there are no special tricks..but I also am very careful that my calories are good ones...I eat nice and clean...no doing things out of guilt, despair or desperation. This is living a fun, clean, healthy lfestyle...Surrender to this, enjoy this! We make it hard folks.
Here's what I have been doing....eat clean, smaller portions, write it down, weigh in weekly...no excuses! Be accountable. Right now specifically, no sugar. Very little processed. Workouts....I box with a professional boxer 2X a week, Hot Bikram Yoga 2X a week and Gym 2X a week. At the gym, 45 minutes on the treadmill doing intervals to get that heartrate up and then one day upper body and one day lower body. I aim for 6 days a week, I take off Thursday...I will accept 5 days a week if something comes up but not happy when that turns into 4 days a week.
My goodness gracious!!!! I will be 50 years old this year...I love it and I so look forward to all that my 50's will bring me...It gives me a sense of power! I am single and would love to meet someone with the same day in and day out agenda. I have been selling Real Estate for 20 years and love what I do..I can see a great year, a great decade!!!!! ahead of me in my business....I love to cook for people, be outside, anywhere on the water...heck, look at where I live! Want to travel, go to concerts... music...the music matters.
One tends to choose Happiness when it is actually a choice. Life is good. I live in abundance. The goal is to live in balance, to renew daily, respect my mind and body and do something to get me closer in the journey everyday....."Every day is winding road...I get a little bit closer" Cheryl Crow.
