A year in review 2015
Wednesday, December 30, 2015
One more day of this year is left. 2015 was a huge transitional year. I began the year at approximately 245 pounds and will finish it around 159. I have never before lasted this long, but that's probably because I entered into a new lifestyle last January and didn't start a new diet.
I gradually added exercise and feel great.
There have been many a January where I had declared that "This is my year", but this is the very first time that I know it to be true. I will begin this coming year having already worked so hard to get to where I am, so I can enjoy the fruits of my labors. Even if you're starting all over again this month, we still have to believe that "This will be my year," or it will never happen. I said it last year, with hope and a plan.
I've been at my job very little, but am looking forward to February when someone is supposed to retire, leaving me her full time job. I'm scared to death that she hasn't put in her official notice yet, and I have put all my eggs in this basket, but fingers crossed I will hear in the next week if this will happen. I'm afraid and excited all at once.
On a very personal note, my husband and I have re-evaluated our relationship and have decided to make a bigger effort to strengthen our marriage.We had gotten into a rut and felt more like roomates. I know that I've once again become the person he married and he is making an effort to do the same.
Maybe my new years resolution should be to chill out a bit more (I'm a bit neurotic sometimes)
I raise a glass (of sparkling water)
to wish all my spark friends a Happy and Healthy New Year!
