Belated New Years

Sunday, January 30, 2011

2010 was a blur of activity, crises and work -- and I'm glad to see it gone. My co-worker was fired in November so that left all of the work to be done by me. Christmas was really challenging -- it seemed I just got ready for it and it was gone and then it took forever to get it put away. So January's Resolutions didn't happen. Instead I've ended January having gained about 10 pounds and in terribly physical shape.

Enter February! I've finally got a new coworker starting tomorrow and I have hopes that work won't consume me as much as it has in the past. I am going to really try to focus on what is possible for me to get done instead of all that is needed to be done. And turn it off when it's time to stop work. That will be hard.

I am going to exercise in the morning right after feeding the cat so I make sure I have time to do it instead of letting the morning slip away from me. I am going to take more time planning meals and cooking healthy food instead of stopping for fast food.

I feel like I'm at the point of my life that if I don't take care of myself I'm going to start having real health problems. Plus I do remember how awesome it felt when I had lost weight and had energy and felt good about myself.

So tomorrow I'll take measurement and new photos. And get serious about getting healthy!!
