Setting New Goals for 2013

Tuesday, January 01, 2013

Well, it's the 1st, and of course, that time of year when we find ourselves reflective. I did not make my goal of being in 'Onederland' by the end of the year. In fact, I've gone up slightly. 'Twas the holiday season what got me. Aye, there's the rub.

But it's a new year, and a new opportunity to get it right. I've grappled with my disappoinment for weeks now, and I've finally come to the conclusion that it doesn't matter. All that matters is that I'm energized and renewed and focused on moving forward. I have a goal of 5 lbs. per month this year, or 15 lbs. per quarter.

I just needed to give myself permission to start over. I'm about 6 lbs. up from my lowest weight. As far as I'm concerned, this is day 1. Not because it's New Year's, but because the season of over-indulgence is finally over, and I can get back on a schedule.

I feel clear-headed and I'm looking forward to what's ahead. I hope everyone has a wonderful 2013.

    Step away from that scale, you had so many more victories and I'd bet your bod shows success inspite of those 6.

    Here's to a fun 2013!
