My New Year starts TODAY….

Friday, December 28, 2012

Why wait???

Tomorrow never comes, procrastination is a killer and every day I wait to begin exercising again is a lost day.

Why today??? Because today is our 32nd wedding anniversary and what better present could I possibly give us both than a healthy, happy wife who feels good and wants to spend another 32 years with her dear husband.

I’m not waiting for 2013.

Doesn’t mean there won’t be champagne and bacon wrapped scallops tonight… it’s all about portion control. What it does mean is I started exercising again TODAY to honor our commitment to each other with renewed fitness goals for 2013. Happy Anniversary Michael emoticon

1. Exercise more emoticon emoticon

5. Worry less emoticon emoticon
6. Pay cash emoticon emoticon
7. Continue to count my blessings emoticon emoticon

emoticon emoticon Happy New Year Spark Friends emoticon emoticon

    Great list! I think it just about covers EVERYTHING! I may have to steal it...especially 3-7. Those are just as important to happy living and often forgotten while focusing so much on 1 and 2.
LOVE, love, love that you started early!

Happy Anniversary! emoticon
