First Blog of 2011

Wednesday, January 05, 2011

I have been thinking really hard, like smoke coming from the ears hard, about my first blog of the year. I haven't come up with anything. Just a big blank. I am shooting from the hip here.

Long pause...

I thought about recapping my 2010 year of it's ups and downs, but then I thought... that year is gone, can't add or change it, I have no success stories to share and it is time to start anew - so why?

Long pause...

I don't make new year's resolutions. In my humble opinion that is just setting myself up to fail. One thing I did do on New Years Eve to start my 2011 off was jump on my elliptical for the witching hour. In the past if I was sleeping at midnight I had noticed I slept the year away. If I was at a party, I would manage to party all year long. So I thought....If I find myself exercising...the light bulb goes on over my head brightly....I may just exercise my year away. So far so good on this. Even though I have been sick I have managed to get exercising, breathing heavily through my mouth since I can't from my nose. LOL! But I got my butt in gear and as I have mentioned in past blogs the cleavage was glistening. Bonus! I have managed to eat okay so far, did some little cheating with left over Christmas kisses but my water intake is fabulous and I haven't taken a nap since the new year (this is big!) and I have found myself connecting with my children more. Of course all of us parents should find that a big bonus when one of the kids is 17 year old girl. (sorry not really exercise/eating right related but when I am doing this while playing Wii - it helps)

Short pause....

So now that I have found my first blog of the year typed out, I feel good. I feel confident, energized. I am ready to take on 2011 with determination, a positive attitude and thanks to SparkPeople, my teams and my friends; supportive, inspired and WILL BE SUCCESSFUL!!

End of pauses... let's Rock this one out, bring it on, and as Nike says; JUST DO IT!

    Hey there..What a great way to start the new year! I love that imagine of being up on the elliptical at midnight..Congrats! Your blog is very positive and that goes a long way to helping us reach our goals. A big side benefit is the connecting with family..I find when we feel better about ourselves/ what we are doing, that spills over into everything and into the way we interact with others..All good!!
    Thanks also for taking time to read my blog and leave such encouraging and complimentary comments..Made me feel all warm inside..
    I have found myself reflecting a lot over the last few days..( I remember we connected through Cat..I still think about her and hope she is doing well in her life..) and I wanted to use those reflections to start my 2011 off on the right foot..and as you say..rock it!!
    Will be back soon! Have a good week
