Well, I started 2013 out differently than I've started a new year in a very long time. I guess that is a sign that I'm going to do things differently this year.
I've been sitting here today thinking of the changes that have happened over the past year and the changes I need to happen in this coming year.
I've lived a year of turmoil and it has played havoc with me. More so I think than any other.
It's time to let the past go and make the needed changes for the future. Just typing that statement is scary, but here goes.
This year I need to meet some goals. I have set so many over the years and have just let them slide by. That has to stop. So my first goal is to STICK TO IT.
I'm going to put these goals down so that I can't just pretend I didn't make them when I let one slip up. Don't get me wrong, I know that I may not hit every goal exactly as I plan, but if I don't try I won't hit any at all.
#1. I still have 60 lbs to lose, so a long term goal is to get that 60 lbs gone this year. (2013).
#2. A little shorter term. In the month of January I'm going to get back into gear with my Body By Vi. Starting my new 90 day challenge tomorrow, January 2, 2013. This 90 day challenge will be to lose 25 lbs and exercise at the gym 3 days a week.
#3. Probably should be #1, but, anyway #3 is to find a job. At this point it can be a temporary to fill in until the track opens again in April or a more permanent full time position. I really don't care which, but a permanent one will have to be something I think I can really sink my teeth into.
#4 get my finances in shape. Start putting money into my savings and getting my bills all paid. Quit spending on things I don't need.
I'm going to stop at 4 for right now. They are all BIG goals for me, so I don't want to set myself up for failure right off the bat by setting more than I can chew.
I'm so thankful to have a place that I can air this all out without fear of recriminations. All of my friends on here are so supportive and will help me to get it together with your support.
Don't be afraid to call me out if you see me slipping.
