306 days until **gasp** I turn 40

Sunday, November 08, 2009

306 days is what I have left until I turn---gasp 40 yrs old!!! oh my! I have decided I'm not entering my 40th year unhappy with how I feel about myself. I have been giving it some serious thought lately and have decided I have to stop wishing for it, and start doing it. I can't achieve my goals from wishing and dreaming about them---I actually have to put the effort into doing the things that are going to get me to where I want to be. I can't let the holiday season be a crutch either. I'm not going to let it become my "oh well" it's the holidays.

This plan is still a plan in progress, cause I'm still not exactly sure what it is I want to achieve. Eating better, weight training, running, p90x, yoga, water, more fresh clean foods and less processed foods, green tea and not Starbucks are all part of the plan but figuring out how each one will fit into my "plan" hasn't been figured out yet.

I'm the type of person who can start off all gung-ho and then fall on my face and take 2 months to get my motivation back up to re-start. I can't let that happen this time, I dont' want it to happen this time. I think starting out with some babysteps and then adding to it and build on is a better approach for me....but like I said it is a plan in progress...always a plan in progress.

    Loving my 40th year... just over a month away from my 41st and I wouldn't have it any other way! Figure out your plan, make it baby steps, write it down and then look to us here on SparkPeople when you need that extra oomph to stay on track!

    Yeah baby steps is good, start a new page if you fall down, make it grow on you this time and walk over the winners line.. I say walk because this change is for life, no need to run with head cut off.. Stay cool and enjoy what you eat, enjoy your exercise and remember to rest..

    You can do it! At least you don't have 6 days until you turn 40. You have enough time to go slow and steady and still win the race. I know you can do it!
