A New Year A New Me

Tuesday, January 01, 2013

I was struggling with my emotional thinking, stresses and excuses so much that I decided to take a break for a few months from my journey to work more on my emotional health. I knew I could never succeed at the weight loss until I did so. The break did relieve some of the pressure and stress I put on myself, but I admit I also gained weight, because I wasn't being accountable.

But now it is a new year, a chance to renew commitments, set new goals, and make new plans. So I'm back and ready to work! I know I still have many lessons to learn about myself, my thinking and endurance. I know that it isn't going to all change at once, that it will take time and patience. I also know sometimes I will have to forgive myself, because I won't be perfect. But no journey is ever perfect, if it was would the end result feel so rewarding? I believe the struggles I overcome on this journey will teach me about overcoming other obstacles in my life. So now I just have to remind myself I'm strong enough to take this journey. One step at a time, one day at a time, one goal at a time.

So for this first week of January here are a few small goals:

Get 120 minutes of exercise this week!
Drink 8 cups of water per day this week!
Track my food every this week!

That will be my starting point, because every journey starts somewhere! Then I'll add in more fitness minutes as I go. I'll work on getting my eating into range as I go, and I'll work on other habits as I go. I will write in a journal/blog, to keep track of my progress. And by the end of 2013, I will be a New Me!
