MY new year

Thursday, November 01, 2018

The plan was to start out small and then come the first of the year I was going to fully start my healthy lifestyle. Yesterday while rushing to get Halloween decorations up, in the rain I might add, I was thinking about my health. I don't want to wait and plus my "new year" technically starts today. I wanna start out my 36th year right. I'm not just talking about my health but me as a person. I'm the type that will see something on the floor and think, "I'll pick that up the next time I go through" or "I'm tired, I'll do the dishes tomorrow". Well starting today I'm going to keep the house looking clean as if we are expecting guests any second.

I'm tired of living like a slob. I have that I can care less type attitude and that's really not how I am. It's a confidence thing so I think, NO, I know that If I start being the person I really wanna be I will build up that confidence and be happy with things and actually believe in myself for once.

Last night I fixed some chili so that when we came in from the rain we would have a hot bowl of chili ready for us. I love my chili !! I fixed my bowl and it was a little more wet than usual so i put more crackers in it. While that made it a full bowl and when I was done I was full. About 40 or so minutes later I go into the kitchen and see some spaghetti left so I finished it off thinking I dont wanna waste the pasta, I hate wasting food. Doing this, I just had myself another FULL bowl of chili. I was so stuffed that when I yawned my stomach would hurt. I was upset with myself because I could have just mixed it with some chili and then put it in the fridge for another day. I ALWAYS do this and yet I never learn. I always tell myself that Im eating a lunch for another day. Im not hungry, just greedy. Above I said that I hate wasting food, well in a way I am wasting food. Eating when you aren't hungry means you are "throwing away" a meal for another day.

A few days ago I did some yard work and it was a full body workout. I felt it in my thighs, arms, and shoulders the next day. I did hurt my arm just below the wrist and I was just thinking that when its better I can go to the gym. Well I just slammed that down and said, NO. Even though my arm is a little sore I can still go to the gym and do cardio. This is something else I do. I search for excuses. NO MORE!

My goal is to have this year be the year I change. I have a lot to work with and I know it will be difficult but if I stick with it a year from now I will look back to today and see just how much I have grown and changed. This will give me the confidence that I feel that I have never had before.

This will be my year

    Start now and view it as a primer for the new year. What works this month that you can tweak for your year goal?

    Wonderful! No better time to start than right now. Set your goals and go for it. Freeze leftovers in small portions for another day. No waste, and no temptation. Makes for an easy quick meal when you need one. When you slip, and you will, add in some extra exercise. Become aware of calories and what it takes to burn them. Is the candy, ice cream, chips, etc. really worth having to stay on the treadmill longer worth it. Little by little and one step at a time will get you there. Preplanning and consistency is the key. emoticon
