This is how I would like to be entering the new year - with a great big, energetic, motivated, healthy, fit and forward-looking leap! Unfortunately, I'm still struggling with some of the basics of my healthy lifestyle and fighting (another) cold. All the more reason to post this, with faith that things will get better, that I'll find my focus and that 2014 will be an awesomely wonderful year.
I'm not waiting till the 1st of January to get back on track. I finished the day within my ranges on the nutrition tracker, and have tracked my food for tomorrow, too. Not much exercise to speak of, just the walk to and from church this morning, but it's not a good idea to push things with a fever.
Earlier today, I typed up a 3-page post in Word that I will probably never put online, but it was good to get those thoughts off my mind and onto paper. It concerned a confrontation/situation with a friend that has been very painful but instructive. Writing - whether letters, blog posts, prayers, journal entries, or essays - is something that I want to do more of in the year ahead. So expect to hear more from me here in the days ahead.
P.S. The Germans wish each other a "good slide" into the New Year. Whether you're sliding or leaping, may your transition into 2014 be happy!
