No Need to Wait

Monday, December 31, 2012

I have friends who are waiting until tomorrow to start dieting. I'm not dieting, and I'm not waiting.

I was far from perfect in December, but I still managed to reach my goals. I lost 5lbs, rode my recumbent bike every day (I can now do 20 minutes on a good day, and my average is 16 minutes a day!) and I did every single day of a squat challenge.

I'm not waiting. Waiting is just another form of procrastination, and I already do enough of that. I don't need to wait when I'm already ending the year on a strong note. I don't want to wait. I know what my goals are and I'm ready to push through to reach them.

In 2012 I lost a total of 10 inches. I got back down to where I was at this time last year. I have more than tripled the time I can ride my bike. I have more energy. I can stand for longer periods of time. I've taken a lot of time to examine what holds me back emotionally and have started making progress in those areas. My feet are finally starting to heal. I went down a shoe size, and a full cup size in bras. I can wear smaller rings. The swelling in my leg isn't nearly as bad as it used to be. I'm stronger and can go longer when doing strength training. I'm taking more time doing the things that I love and that make me happy, and worrying less about what others are doing. I'm more focused.

There's no need to wait, end the year strong. Start the new year off even stronger.

This is my favorite inspirational song. I love every word of it, and it has kept me going through some rough patches this year. It's how I plan on spending all of 2013!

    You are so right!! I'm not waiting either. I started on Dec. 27th, the day after my 50th birthday. I was not spending another day making poor choices and sitting on my ample derriere. Best of luck in your journey!
