Taking It One Day At A Time
Saturday, January 01, 2011
Yesterday I looked at my blog that I had written at the beginning of 2010 to see what goals I accomplished for the year. Sad to say, but that I didn't do any of them. It's not that they were so out of reach, but I have been fighting with my motivation. I don't know why it is so hard for me to stay focus to lose the weight, I have lost 40 pounds before and stayed at that weight for a long time too. I think the main thing for me that is keeping me at this weight is that I am planning out my life and not living it. I need to learn to enjoy today instead of wondering what I am going to do 3 or 5 years from now. I need to take it one day at a time. I need to realize that it's okay to have dreams and goals, but I do need to enjoy the present. So, my main goal that I want to work on this year is to do just that. Don't worry so much about what my weight is going to be tomorrow or the next week. Focus more on making my eating and exercise and drinking at least 64 ounces a day a habit so that it will become second nature to me. I need to take my schooling one semester, one class at a time. I am so close to being finished that I need to make sure that I give each class my all and not just get through it. The jobs are out there and when it is time, the one that is for me will be there waiting! I need to make sure to enjoy these early years with my daughter because time is just passing by so fast and she is just growing up so fast before my eyes. I will be able to move out on my own for the final time. I know what I need to do, the only one who is stopping me from doing it is me. This year will be different as I will accomplish each and every goal that I have set for myself because I will be taking each of them one day at a time.
