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.
