Happy New Year. 2018

Monday, January 01, 2018

Well the New Year has hit...and away we go.........

I have had to refocus myself a number of times...it isn't hard to fall back into old habits, in fact it is so easy, that it makes one wonder if you were ever out of them in the first place...

I am much to old to continue lying to myself.I need & want to be Healthy, not just for myself but for my family, my children are grown & have their own lives & families , I have 2 very adorable Grandsons that I would love to spend slot more time with& be able to do the things they want to do, I enjoy many things with my husband as well... I just never seem to have the energy or the time...
I know I need to do baby steps, although I find myself getting board with the same old routines & move on to something else more interesting and try that for a while .....so in the end its a commitment issue.....a commitment to myself that I just ignore or decide to give up...I rationalize it to better suit me....my wants at the time & not looking at the long term out come..it rudely gets depressing- hence the depression during the Holidays....of looking back & noticeboard..........This Trend needs to end.... !!!
So now what do I do.....?
Well, I pick my self up, dust myself off and try again.....!!! the only true quitter is the one who stops trying ...! As they say " Time heals a wounds " and it's true depending on the wound &the effort made to heal it.....
"Patience is a Virtue" also true, if we are rudely honest with ourselves...we find that we do not have as much patience as we say we do... very true about myself...
I have been finding myself leaning on God more & more...he is the only one I have found that has the strength to help me continue on....and with out his Patience, & his Grace & Mercy for me........Well I would be slot worse off than I am ....
How do I know ????
Because I was already there once before.... Remember not all of us share everything we do,we think, we say, we see on our pages or tell our entire life stories... & That's okay either way. It's each person's own journey.... own choice which they choose to share...

Ok so here I am rambling on. . emoticon

My focus for 2018 , it's simular to 2017 only less over welcoming. (I hope)
With God's help I can do it...
For starters :

1)Read my Bible more & Pray daily
Long term goals

2)keep track of food intake
3)exercises 3 days a week...
4) learn to keep better finances

Short term goals
a)drink more water. 3 glasses a day. Less soda
b) eat more veggies - 2 meals a week with veggies as main ingredient

I'l check in again in the next few days... bye for now
