A blog a day...
Sunday, November 13, 2016
A blog a day is a hard thing for me to do, but that's part of the challenge for the final week of the Fall 5% Challenge. Hmm...what to write about? The challenges of traveling and trying to stay true to my food plan? Issues related to disappointment and sadness because of an unexpected loss? Helpful hints for my fellow challengers and Spark Friends? Coping with the loss of a dear friend? These and others are all worthy topics.
No. Instead I think I'll reflect briefly on my birthday this week. I've reached another milestone...a year older. It just seems to happen. Unfortunately, I've not reached some other milestones during this past year. I've frittered away a lot of days, made goofy choices when I had better ones in front of me, and excused my way past inertia (physical and mental).
Having said all that, I'm not waiting until the New Year to set goals for myself. No...what's the point? If I can't set them now and begin to walk the walk of the talking I do, then next year I'll find myself in the same place I am now, except a year older. So, my goals are being worked on, and my actions will be developed, and my commitment is hereby renewed!! What a great feeling!
Won't you join me in this journey? Joining the Winter 5% Challenge is one way to help us move along on the path to success! Think about it. Here's a link for you to check it out: www.sparkpeople.com/mysp
