Reflections on where I am and where I want to be!

Sunday, January 27, 2013

I am just jotting down some ideas on how I expect my life to change for the better when I get to my goals:

I will be running a 5k in less than 30 mins.

I will be aiming for a 10k

I will be running in local 5k runs without caring who sees me.

I will have the energy to do anything I want to do

I will buy clothes, not because I like them and decide to buy them in a smaller size (as I don’t feel like this is my ‘right’ size!) but because they fit me well no matter what size they are. Clothes size will no longer define who I am.

I will be happy with my size. I have realised that I have been near my weight goal before but was not happy as it was not a weight I felt good at. I now have accepted and am happy that my goal weight should be lower.

I will be exercising because I want to not because I feel I have to.

But I think that in order to move forward one has to forgive themselves for failures in the past. We need to forgive, learn from and move on.

I forgive myself that in two years I have only lost a net of 9lbs. What I really need to forgive myself is for the fact that I have lost much more than that but have put it back on at least four times in that time! That frustrates me and annoys me and makes me feel I must be the most inconsistent, stupid person on the planet!

So today, I am starting at the only place I can – where I am at now. Time to forget that I have been 7lbs lighter at least twice in the past year! I am going to concentrate on what I have achieved in that two years. The main achievement is that I can now run a 5k!! Two years ago, I hadn’t even thought about running!!

Time to move on!!

    The best thing about the past is that you've PASSED it! Treat today as brand new and move forward.

    Decent, achievable goals. Good attitude on realizing that what's past is gone, and making that decision to concentrate on what you can now do. Good fortune making those goals reality!
