Start on your dreams, your impulses,
your longings, your special occasions today.
Because this is your moment.

Cheers to a new year and another chance for us to get it right.

I wanted to get this blog done before I head to work today. I have to work till six and then it will be home eat and bed so I can head back in for the busiest day of the year. So goes the life of working in a fast paced pharmacy.
I want to just say thank you. Today is also my and with that comes many thoughts and pondering. Like why I haven't taken this journey to heart and reached my goals? Well life sometimes gets in the way and when you don't plan for those times you will end up each January saying this is going to be the year of change. Well I won't start this year off saying that but I will begin it by saying this is a new year, filled with new challenges, new ideas, new goals, and the sky is the limit.
So as the coach says after each prayer before a game "lets go out there and kick some butt"
This is what I did today. You see I headed to the grocery store after my morning workout and I had a list and a plan. I did it. So when I got home and put it all away, ate my weighed and planned lunch, relaxed for a bit, took a nap, then I got up and had a planned snack, then yup dinner. YES. A day for the books. I don't know I just awoke this morning with a new purpose and just ready to see this through. I had a good talk with myself and I just explained to self that we really wanted this...health that is. That it was up to us because.....
As a good friend is fond of telling me and I say it myself alot now....Choices it's all about choices.
Wow today has been so quiet. Hubby had to work and I was left to my own devices all day. Well we all know what that means in my little world.... Yup I pretty much ate my weigh through the day. Now I wrote it all down. I have to tell ya it was pretty scary. But I accounted for each bite, lick, and taste. Progress? You bet. There was a time I would of just pretended that I hadn't eaten all that. but now this time. It was time to face the and I did. Now how will I fix this? Welllll...... I intend to give it all I got move forward.
So when bored may I suggest finding something to do with yourself besides eating.
On the plus side...I got the tree taken care of, the spare room cleaned, the living room back in order and vaccumed. So yeah I didn't sit around all day long and really looking back over my day I didn't eat that much over the norm....it was my choices. Where I should of had fruit I had a pumpkin bread, and then a cheese muffin. So nope it wasn't that I ate so much it was that my choices where strictly out of bordom. So now time to pull up my big girl panties and get back to it.
Although the year began as any other I am not at all sorry to see a new one arrive. We lost my mother in law this year, two of our precious pups within three weeks of each other, and I hit my high on the scale. So how is 2013 going to be any better? Well I can't say there will be no loss of loved ones as I have no control over that, I just have to pray and know that what will be will be. As for my scale shocks throughout the year....well that I can control and i'm taking steps to work on me now. So far i'm three days in and holding my own. Cooking again and that is new. I was so slacking in that area. But so far three nights of meals. Getting my fruits and veggies, and water. Again I had slacked so bad on that.
But as of this moment i'm not slacking on ME and that is my New Years gift to me. If I begin the new year on a high note maybe I can continue with the flow. So Heres to ME.
