A new beginning
Monday, December 04, 2006
As the holidays and the end of the year are approaching, I'm beginning to take another look at my life and all that has happened. It's been one thing after another all year long. There have been some tremendous ups and some even bigger downs. It's easy to keep myself focused on the downs because those are what hit so hard and seem to carry over in my day to day life.
I look at how the weight battle has gone for the year and while there was a bit of a change, there hasn't been enough, nor have the habits I started to pick up stuck with me. So now I need to rethink this whole process. I need to really look at what caused me to reach where I am, and why I really think I need to do this. It can't just be because I have a bridesmaid dress to wear in March, or that my clothes don't fit, it has to be a bit deeper than that. I'm not quite sure I'm mentally to that point yet, but I am definitely several steps closer. It will be when I reach that point that I'm going to take the reins and fully focus on taking care of myself from the inside out.
I'm going to start small, and hopefully add a little each week, or maybe every few days. Monday seems a good day to start, though I don't suppose it really matters, it just matters that I start. So my goal for this week is to actually get all my water in. Nothing wild, crazy or difficult, but it will take some focusing to make sure I meet my goal.
