New Year, New Goals, New Way of Living

Thursday, January 01, 2009

With the New Year I have decided it is time to shed some of the things that have been "weighing" me down, physically and figuratively. I know I sound like a broken record, but I have been doing too many things and not taking care of myself in trying to take care of everyone and everything else.
Positive steps: I have given my notice in one of my jobs, although I have promised to stay until they find a replacement. I may have to eventually set an end date, but I hope it won't come to that. I am also preparing to ask folks to take over a couple of my volunteer jobs.
I have recommitted myself to SparkPeople - keeping track of my calories, drinking my water, and getting exercise (no matter what else is going on - I WILL take time for me)!

    Thanks, you guys! I really appreciate the encouragement. This is an area where I need ongoing support (and a kick in the rear)!

    We have both recommitted to spark this new year. i feel very strongly that i can lose what i gained, get back to exercising , reach my goal and feel better about myself instead of the depression of being out of control in many areas/
    good luck and blessings to all of us as we "walk" to tampa!

    I love New Years for evaluating and recommitting. Its good to realize that you need to take care of you. Lighten your load. See what feels like enough now. Pass the torch to some fresh blood. I also started the SparkAmerica stuff. I like the simplicity of it being right here where everything else is. And its an encouragement to keep on keeping on. I also like that SP recognizes other forms of exercize. Like ping pong!!! Silly but fun and its better that sitting on a couch!
    I, too, am psyched about a fresh beginning.

    Good for you Dianne! It's so easy to neglect ourselves, but really, are we any good to others when we don't take care of ourselves? I hope things get better, and that 2009 treats you well!
