on the other side
Sunday, December 31, 2017
i wanted to write one final blog of the year. and say thanks to all sp friends who commented and followed, sent goodies or private mail with words of encouragement this year.
while 2017 was a much better year for me in my private personal life, it wasnt that great in my food obsessed overeaters exercised much less than i should have life.
i enjoyed a reconcilation with honey after a brief split, and we enjoyed our time at the beach, going on road trips and going riding in the mts, fishing, and just time at home with loved ones....along with way too much food.
the year ends with a box of krispy kremes on the kitchen table. no joke!!
there was a time when something like that would not find its way into my shopping cart, let alone into my mouth.
and that time is to return.
i dont buy into the whole, new year, new me thing.
i know that i will struggle, i will see failures, i will be the same sarcastic smartmouth who sometimes makes excuses for bad habits. i will have days of depression where the thoughts of exercising is just too hard. and i will have good days where i am determined and i will annoy people with my up too early at the track lets do this attitude.
i feel like the date on a calender doesnt mean new beginnings, etc and so on.
it can be jan 1st or march 22, or sept 7....whatever, a time to start, or restart or just STOP bad behavior and habits can be anytime.
so, while it is a new year, i will say, i do plan to get back to the track more.
as soon as it rises above 12 degrees.....maybe when i see the high 20s.
i am not setting unrealistic unreachable goals for the new year
or any goals other than to eat healthier, make wiser choices when looking at a menu and exercise more.
if weight loss comes, and i hope it does, that will be a plus.
my only real goal is to get back to ME.
taking care of myself and that includes better eating and exercise habits.
i am however setting a personal goal, which i wont jinx by giving too much detail, for sept 2019.
and yes, that is along way off and alot can change by then.
but i am going to put a plan in motion soon concerning this and this is going to be much like the shawshank redemption, chipping slowly away at barriers and getting to the other side.
i wish each of you a heatlhier happier new year and i wish each of you to be the best you can be mentally, emotionally and physically.
not just jan 1st, not just 2018, but onward.....
