So, it is New Years Eve 2011.
Have I accomplished any of my goals?
Not really, though I don't think I went backwards any and I did work on them. All in all, it wasn't what I had hoped for, but then again, we tend to get out of things, what we put into them, right?
I have lost a few pounds (exact number is probably 3#, but I won't weigh until Monday, so that is yet to be determined). Not the 20-30 pounds I had hoped for, buy hey, I did not gain, so that is worth something.
I have made some strides on reconnecting with my DH of over 35 years, and this is huge for me. We now say "love you" when we have finished a phone conversation and, even though it sometimes seems forced and awkward, I believe it is like smiling. If you smile, even when your heart isn't in it, eventually you actually start to feel happy. We have also taken up the "sport" (not sure it really qualifies) of 4 wheeling together. We have not shared a hobby in our entire 35 years of marriage, so this also qualifies as huge.
Now, onward to 2012...
I have decided this is the Year of Me.
This is the year that I will lose weight, become active, and figure out what in the world I am going to do with my hair!
Sounds selfish, I know, but I have lost myself. I have lost (& cannot even remember) the hope & dreams I had as a young woman. It is time I re-discovered them, or, create new ones.
I need to be someone. I need to stand for something & strive towards something. Life has to be more than going to work everyday & doing mountains of laundry. No more just "existing". No more being wishy-washy!
I will continue to make my DH & my marriage priority.
I will work on de-cluttering my house & create a "home", instead.
I will cook more & carry-out less.
I will move my fat butt everyday.
I will lose weight - 1st weight loss goal is now 175 pounds.
I will be flexible on all of these goals, but will not give up an ANY of them.
Welcome 2012 - the Year of Me!
