2012 ~ Good Riddance!

Sunday, December 30, 2012

I've been meaning to create a blog entry here for months. I've had no motivation and nothing positive to write about, so I guess that is why I have stayed away so long. emoticon

2012 has not been the year I hoped it would be. The brachial neuralgia in my left shoulder was the beginning of my setbacks for the year. Once that pain went away I was just scared to start working out hard again like I had been. This led me to a sedentary year with little motivation, bad eating habits and gaining more weight. Needless to say I am not happy about setting my self back so far. emoticon

2012 Fitness Minutes: 2,354
2012 Goal: 5,984

Going to set my goal to 4,500 minutes for 2013.

The past few months have been a blur. Shopping for birthdays, birthday parties, shopping online and in stores for gifts (birthday and Christmas), Girl Scout meetings, school parties, choir practice, on and on the list goes. So finally, Christmas comes and what happens? My 6 year old starts to get sick the Friday night before Christmas. I start with it Christmas Eve and my 10 year old starts the Wednesday after Christmas. My throat is still sore, raw and I have a lot of phlegm. Sleeping at night is close to non existent. I just want to be healthy. This Christmas break has not been fun or relaxing. It isn't what I envisioned at all. I am disappointed in the way it all panned out after all the hard work I put into shopping. Not a lot of the toys have been played with yet because no one feels well enough to jump around and play Xbox Kinect games. We're all just pretty tired. emoticon

Sorry to be such a downer, but this has been a lot of what 2012 was like for me.
I'm not sorry to see this year come to an end.
I am happy to start fresh with hope and a better outlook than I've been having.
I just hope 2013 allows for me to do things that need to be done as well as fun things that I want to do. A lot of change needs to begin with me. I need to focus on that.

Whatever you are looking forward to in the new year, I hope all your wishes become a reality!
