Planning ahead for 2013...

Saturday, December 22, 2012

Now that I have proven that I can fulfill a New Year's resolution (learning to eat healthy and exercise regularly so that I can get healthy was the one I made in 2012), it's time to think about a resolution for 2013.

I've decided that I really need a more balanced life.

Planning my food and exercise has really been a HUGE part of my life this year, to some respects at the cost of my focus on work and my personal life. I know that I need to cut back a little on the exercise (been doing a TON, especially the past few weeks) and work on those aspects of my life.

It will take some trial and error, and I will probably make some mistakes, but I figure with the amount of monitoring that I do, they're easily correctable (well, unless it's an injury, but I don't want to think about that!).

I just know that I need to be more emotionally healthy than I am at this point, and that means working on my social relationships. My first step is going to a New Year's Eve party when I get back after Christmas. It should be fun....and I'll just make sure that I commit to at least one social activity a month for now with at least one of the social groups I belong to here in Memphis (Fabulous Women over Forty and the Memphis Movie Group). I've also started dating again after a 3 year hiatus, though that's more of a side-burner thing. Men may come and go, but girlfriends are forever!

Alright, got to get in the shower and start getting ready to head to the airport. Have a terrific Saturday, everyone and if you travel this weekend, BE SAFE!

    You have had a wonderful year of exercising and eating healthy. I also have focused more on my exercise and maintaining my weight loss, more than social obligations this year.

Have a wonderful holiday.

    Best of luck to you meeting your new year's goals.
I agree with you that to be emotionally healthy we all need to work on our social relationships.

    Good for you. I know I can be a bit of a hermit unless I make a conscious effort to do otherwise.
