As this year comes to a close
, I'm just going to make a resolution that I'm not making any resolutions as usual. Resolutions are pretty much a crock of doo doo in my life. (insert flaming poo emoticon here lol) If I make them at 12 am January 1st, by 12:05 am they are pretty much done for.
I am, however, going to continue in this journey as best as I can.
Last year I lost a total of 30 lbs, but gained 10 back. I have to say, though, a 20 lb maintain isn't bad in my book.
If I can do that for the next 2 years, I'll reach the weight that I wouldn't mind maintaining for the rest of my life. I'd like to see 165 one day, but if I see 175 again (and the clothes I miss wearing staring at me in my closet), It will all be good.
As I get older, my weight loss isn't so focused on the superficial anymore, cause let's face it... even though my babies pretty much wrecked any dream of having a tight belly without the fantastic plastic, I'm pretty darn beautiful.
(self love moment there, still working on saying that without gagging, giggling, or eye rolling)
I just want to be healthy. I look at my relatives and see so many who are struggling with diabetes and blood pressure issues, that I am running scared.
(and may even physically run a 5k or 2 this year!)
I'm just ready to feel good again. I want to be motivated again. I want to run and not grow weary and that eagles wing thing the bible (Isaiah 40:30-31) promises me.
(s0 SP doesn't have any strong lookin bird emoticons) I'm ready to start working on my temple again... inside and out.
So, buh bye 2012. It's been a blessed year.
