Believe in the new, believe in the now.

Today is a new year. A time to reflect on the past year, and make improvements. Doesn't matter who you are, what you've done and where you've been, everybody has room for improvement, Everybody has the ability to embrace change!
I'd like to make a list of things I plan to leave behind, in the year of 2012 and prior... In prioritized order:
1. No more binge eating
2. No more making excuses for not exercising daily
3. No more gossiping
4. No more negative people/friends
5. No more doubting myself!
Of course there are more things I could add, but I won't. I believe these five things are what has held me back for so long. Held me back from believing in myself, and where I can go if I just try. And here are five things (that counteract my previous no-no list) that I will continue to do in the New Year and forward:
1. Track nutrition daily
2. Cardio 5-6 times per week
3. Yoga or meditation once per week
4. Take a gym class at least once per week (Spin, X-training, TRX)
5. Keep a blog to track progress
Being that I am already doing most of these five things regularly, I don't feel overwhelmed or under pressure. I know I can do this. I have never felt as healthy and happy as I do right here, right now, and I will not forget this feeling. And the crazy thing is, I'm not even where I want to be weight/measurement-wise. Yet I am still happy and feel healthy because I have seen improvement, which makes me believe, in myself and my new way of life.
To a healthy New Year and new me!
