So the new year has dawned, and while I've come a long way, I'm not 100% satisfied with where I am now. There is definitely room for improvement. Not that I'm beating myself up over it. Quite the opposite. I see my own shortcomings and can recognize where there is room for improvement. The obstacles that prevented me from reaching those goals last year aren't completely out of my view, but I know how to tackle them now. And I'm ready to do it.
I'm starting the new year out with a brand spanking new gym membership. And I've already used it once (WOOHOO!) That will definitely give me a leg up training for my 5k, and surprisingly enough, it's easier to get to the gym than it is to walk out the door and run through the neighborhood (I can't be the only person not wanting to run outside in below freezing weather, or just barely above when it's pouring rain, or that lives in a city that has beaten it's record number of homicides this year).
I know where things are going with my back, so that's a plus (Though I do need to call a chiropracter)
I have an appointment with a surgeon this month for a consultation about my gallbladder, though the doctor thinks that the stones should resolve themselves on their own and not require surgery.
I'm not pregnant anymore, so that's not limiting me.
All in all, I think it's going to be a good year to reach my goals.
