I've decided to have one physical health related goal for the year. The thing I consistently have trouble being consistent with is having two sessions a week of ST. I manage to get one for sure. I plan to work on getting a second one each week, with an occasional third session.
A mental health goal is to change my level of self-acceptance at whatever my current weight is, knowing that I am doing my best. Having compassion on myself when I'm not my ideal weight.
I have a goal for my roles at mother and grandmother. It is to be in touch with each of my kids on a weekly basis, and to send special notes and occasional gifts to my grandkids. I want to be the best grandma and mom that I can be.
I hope you all don't become overwhelmed by multiple goals and pick a few very important ones and set yourselves up for success.
As for looking back over this past year, since February I've maintained my weight pretty closely to my goal target. (Allowing 5 pounds plus or minus the goal.) I am .5 pounds over that amount right now but I have to consider the sodium I've had from the ham I've been eating. When I weigh in on New Year's Day I will most likely be within range.
I have become healthier this year and have become so accustomed to getting regular exercise that it is now a way of life for me. This is my biggest accomplishment this past year. Though another very important change I made this year is going from eating just two fruit and vegetables per day to eating 5 or more every day. I have done this all year; though I thought I'd have to take a year of gradually working up to 5, I quickly began eating 5, and have had a very few days of less than five.
Have a Happy Healthy New Year everyone!
