Well, here it is, February already. I have always like February. Getting to February means that I've gotten through the dark days of January. I am one of those people that REALLY feels the darkness of early January. I can get through the holidays, the excitement and activity seem to pull me through, but man, after the New Year, I just want to be in my house and cocoon!
So here it is - February! The sun is settling a little later every day! I feel joyful when I walk out of school at 5 and it is still light! I also feel stronger in this weight loss endeavor. I want to be done with it! I want this to be the LAST time I climb on this bandwagon! I feel like circling the horses and declaring THIS IS WAR! Maybe I've finally reached the point where I will stay successful...
So I'm off to ride my exercise bike. I'm doing well so far this journey. I started on Jan 1 (in the depths of that dark January) resolved to lose 60 pounds this year. As of this am, I have lost 7 lbs, so I am feeling like I've had a good month, even in spite of the dark!
So I'm wishing myself, and anyone who reads this, light and moments of quiet joy! Hold them dear to help when the world inevitably pushes back just a little too hard! Here's to a good February!
