New Year With New Resolutions Revisited

Monday, January 03, 2011

It's Monday and I am going to start on my New Year's resolution of exercising more this year than I did last year.

It's going to be difficult to start that today with it being the first day back to school for the kids after a long Christmas break and also with it being Monday. I think my daughter will do fine, but it's my son I'm worried about, LOL.

I got a few more bargains yesterday and ended up buying 2 more throws for my living room for $3.75 (regular price was $15) that I plan to store for future use as my kids seem to be very hard on them.

I have no problem with working on my New Year's goals I have set for myself except for the exercise one and loving myself more. I will work on both of those probably harder than the rest of the goals I chose because they are huge battles for me. Saving money is a hobby of mine and not a chore although it is work of course and requires organization, time, and research.

Exercise may be slightly easier for me than loving myself, but I am trying to be good to myself and much kinder to me and my limitations in certain areas. I am so used to trying to be "perfect" although of course I never was because I thought that would help my mother to care about me, but it never did.

I have to love me regardless of her lack thereof and it's going to be a huge struggle for sure to not fall back into those negative thoughts, but I will surround myself with healthy people and situations and try my best to care about me for a change.

    Thank you so much, you made my day with your wonderful comments! I am so thankful to have Spark friends like you on here, what a wonderful blessing this site has been for me in so many ways.

    I didn't really have time but I made myself do my Wii Walk It Out for an hour today because I knew I'd feel guilty if I didn't, LOL. Thank you again!

    You are such a bargain hunter (& finder) Good for you! That exercise goal is one of mine too & is going to be hard for me to work on until the weather warms up & I can get back to walking after work. It seems like once I get home from work my motivation to move is gone.

    As far a loving yourself more - let all of your SparkFriends help you with that. You are a good, supportive friend to all of us and there are a lot of people here who care about you. Just be sure to let us know when you need that extra emoticon and I'll make sure to send one your way emoticon . You are special!
