I have been away from the site for about a week because I needed to take the time to assess what is really important to me. I had to look at my visibility board and ask myself - are these things just nice things to have and to do or are these things reflective of my core values and my true heart's desires? I am a goal setter! But I had to take time to review my goals and ask myself if I was focusing my time, effort and energy on the things that really matter or was I just spending time. Am I partaking in activities that are helping me to grow and move towards my long-term goals or am I just "talking the talk".
I realize that if I am not intentional about applying all of the principals and knowledge that I have learned through my year on the site then I am not investing in a strategy to improve my health, I am not committed to reducing my weight and increasing my joy. Instead, I am just spending time - a hamster on a wheel.
Realizing this, I had to take an inventory and I had to make some hard decisions. Once I made these decisions, I needed to write down my plan and put them into action. I have started making these adjustments with Sparkpeople.com and ALL OF YOU as my companions. Today, I claim victory. Keep reading my blog for the decisions I've made AND for the success I will achieve in 2012.
#1 GOAL: Out of the 200+ club before my birthday. The counter says August 17th but I am going to work hard and achieve that goal before my birthday (August 9). Watch me disappear!
