2014 The BEST is just around the clock...

Tuesday, December 31, 2013

Can't believe at midnight we are entering the BEST year yet! emoticon

Each year I look back & see challenges & triumphs...I know, THAT'S LIFE, right???

I can't see any hardships that I feel could come up in 2014. Everyone makes goals & resolutions at this time of year & I am no different...

I am at a point of peace & contentment & anticipate excitement & success in my personal pursuits.

For the majority of this past year (minus holiday times) I have kept my weight stable.

I have learned & adjusted my eating patterns & content to change sleeping habits, decrease migraine episodes that I can control, decrease stress, & even decrease supplements by 1 or 2 & still feel healthy on a daily basis.

I took a gigantic leap emoticon when I RETIRED in the fall to change the course of my life. yes, it is still new but I have managed to change my day to day living where I feel hopeful, optimistic & relaxed in seeing what is left to come.

Soon I will experience a "bucket list trip" 2 years in the making. It seems surreal to me right now, so close & to say I'm excited is an understatement!

I am continuing my plan to certify as a SMART VON instructor, hopefully by May. This exercise has been a PHENOMINAL step in keeping my activity level upward. I JUST LOVE IT!!! Even my love of music plays a huge part in the programming part of the learning. It has helped me tackle technological challenges along the way!

It's so true that as long as you do something you love no matter how demanding it is, it doesn't feel like a hardship.


I had decided I would take 2 weeks off from m y regular movement activities at Christmas break. I have had a few 45 minute sporadic treadmill jaunts but my steps have dropped by 1/2 this past week. In a way, this was my experiment,...& yes, I did do some holiday nibbling treat-wise. The results were TEXT-BOOK!

Since Dec. 19th I have gained 4 lbs. My WI today was 132.0 9down .8 of a lb.) from last week. My regular fitness schedule will begin again January 6th, my decision. For the rest of this week my choice will be to more conscious of what I put into my TEMPLE...YES, since I began this journey to good health, I consider my body to be my temple & I eat accordingly...& YES, it does respond as a result to that philosophy.

Can't you tell I'm headed to the EAST soon??? emoticon emoticon

I wish you ALL a healthy, happy & peaceful NEW YEAR!!! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
