New year...new start!

Tuesday, January 01, 2013

OK 2013...I am not making resolutions! Resolutions are an invitation to failure....and I don't want to fail! I am setting new goals, working on my body, my mind, my emotions.

2012 was a good and a bad year. Bad....was barely working for several months, and got way behind on everything! Started with new companies that said they had plenty of work, only to get screwed over again. I lost my daddy at the end of 2012, and there is a void there that still hasn't been filled. Also lost a couple of friends who are very much missed.

Now the good...I reconnected with an old friend near the end of 2011...an old friend of my late husband & I. Over the past year, he has become my love, my best friend, my companion, and my rock to cling to when things aren't going well. He still thinks I'm sexy, even with the extra pounds! He is the most optimistic person I know...even when things are not going well (budget, etc.), he always says "we'll get through this. It's gonna be okay". I love you, Tim Anderson...sorry, baby, but you are stuck for the long haul! :D

OK, my goals for the year...I want to lose 50 pounds by my birthday in July. This is going to take some doing, but it is doable!!!! I did it before...I can do it again! I want to rejoin the gym when we finally get settled back on the other side of town and start working out (either that or find a place that has a workout room). Actually, that is another goal...to get back to Tempe/Mesa & find a new home! I want to prove myself to the company I am working for and get the promotion they talked to me about, as a home health clinical supervisor at one of the retirement communities run by the company. I want to spend more time with family & friends (something Tim & I haven't done as much of as we'd like, due to our budget). And I want to return to being ME...not the moody, emotional, & stressed out version of me that I became when money got tight, but back to the fun, energetic, sexy, and thin me that is hidden right now!!!!
