Wrapping things up...

Tuesday, October 02, 2012

Fall is here. Sunday it was 75 and sunny...but Monday (October 1st) is was grey, 62 and a breezy. Talk about an over-night change of a season! I decided I need a change of season.

For two years now my weight has steadily risen, my motivation consistently plummeted...and what is even worse... I have no excuse...well, not a good one, anyway!

So, fall always feels to me like things are wrapping up...birds are flying south, trees are shedding their leaves, neighbors are staying inside more...all in preparation for winter.

Now, winter...that is a whole other season! One that I only enjoy from the window. I do not like cold at all. And only grandkids can get me out the door into the snow...and it must be followed up by hot coffee and a warm bath...but I digress.

I feel a bit like fall. I spent the last week "withdrawing" from a medicine. Today...I feel like a new person. I am thinking more clearly, feeling more deeply...and I have decided to wrap some things up.

Junk food binging is flying south. emoticon

I will be shedding the bad attitudes and bad habits. emoticon

I will be retreating indoors more faithfully to my prayer closet. emoticon

I am preparing to live life on purpose! emoticon

Yet...winter is coming. The hard part. When I want to lay on the couch instead of walk on the treadmill. When I want to stay in a warm bed rather than plan my menu. When I would rather eat a burger than make a healthier meal at home. Yep...winter is coming. I know this. I can prepare for this. I can survive this!

And then...I will be rewarded with Spring!!!!!!
